What gear were you wearing in addition to your AGV rossi helmet? In addition to pure luck, this might have been the difference between life and death.
Glad you survived, had the toughness to recover and ability to ride again.
Way to keep on keeping on !
Thanks for sharing your story and keep the faith Brother. Sounds like you have a lot to look forward too, good luck in Motor Officer School, you might actually like riding a Harley.
We're all proud of you for fighting through everything a recovery like that takes and are able to be here with us, as well as your service as an LEO.
I wish you all the best and it looks like you're very positive which makes all the difference.
We're all pulling for you.
I read every word Royal Tiger, but these are the ones that have me most concerned. I can't click 'next page' without responding to someone I feel is reaching out for help. Please confide these thoughts to your friends, family, or pastor and seek professional assistance. If you don't feel like you can do that, call the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 800-273-8255.
People DO care about you - even this inmate whom just finished reading about your amazing recovery from almost certain death on a bike.
I don't have all the answers, but feel free to PM me if you need a willing ear.
Sincerely, Fast FOG
Wow - hell of a story. For all the pain you've gone through, you probably know yourself and your own strength better than most of us.
Thanks for posting - hope you keep feeling better.
Good luck with your continuing recovery. Quite an amazing story.
You are an amazing person to go through what you did and get back on a bike. I hope your pain subsides soon. Every time I would read about a crash on this site or others, I would wonder if I could get back on a bike. I found that out about 5 weeks ago when I had my first accident. Nothing like yours, though. It seemed the hand of God snatched me of my bike just in time. It's a slow process getting your "bike legs" again. Do it at your own pace, that's all!
Congrats bro. Stay safe, riding and working.
Best wishes Sarge, stay safe and enjoy life.
Wow...keep riding strong.
It's crazy how you survive, it's like a reborn. Good luck finding the interior peace.
Thanks for posting your story, Its always good to read about people overcoming adversity like yours...glad you made it!
I hope you are able to find your inner tranquility, im sure being back on the road will help with that
Thank you for your service as a LEO. I hope sharing your story helps ease your pain.
Best wishes on your continued recovery, both physically and emotionally.
Thanks everyone. I am working a ton of hours this week. I will answer the detailed questions when I can.
Glad to hear you're riding again-I'm not sure I'd be able to after something like that.
For your pain, have you considered yoga? My yoga instructor destroyed her ankle in a car accident several years ago and now walks limp free, despite walking with a cane for a couple years. She also healed herself from chronic fatigue. Anyone can do yoga; you don't need to be fit or flexible as it is adaptable to your ability. I find it exceedingly helpful for mental stuff too. I'm happy to pass along more info, pm me if you're interested.
Glad you're back. I can empathize a bit, having done about 20 days in an induced coma to allow a lung to heal before repairing (pull chips out and put bone in) a shattered C6 vertebra. Took a year and a half to rehab. Missed a double, sticking the front wheel into the second jump and slamming the bars with my chest, snapping my neck. None of it is fun by any stretch.
Wow...I remember you emailing or texting me that you'd had a wreck, but had no idea how bad it was. :eek1
70+ MPH crash on a KLR...there's some good jokes there just waiting to be picked. Make good use of 'em.
Glad you are still with us, and back on a bike. The rare occasions I go through Allentown, I have (and now really will) think of you and send those good vibes.
Keep doing what your doing, law enforcement is tough enough man, don't hang yourself out there for surviving. Enjoy everyday and once in a while throw a good word upstairs, or down. Whichever way your words go someone wants you here so keep up the good work.
