Long time lurker, don't post often. After years of being off and on bikes, I decided to rent a BMW G650GS, to see if I'd want to buy one. Cue two incredible days riding around on an awesome motorcycle. Unfortunately, I'll have to leave most of the details out of the post, for legal issues. Long story short, I was stopped, turning, waiting for oncoming traffic. Person behind me did not yeild. End result, I was hit on the side. No idea how fast she was going, police are still investigating. Injuries are localized to just my left leg. Broke the tibia and fibula just above the ankle, and tore through two of three arteries that go to the foot. Basically, my foot was held on by one good artery and some tendons. Had all 3 arteries been damaged, I would have lost the foot. I'm in the hospital now. They've got an external fixator on my leg, with plans to install hardware by the end of the week. It's bad, but it could have been a lot worse. Still no idea how long recovery will be, or just how many surgeries I'll have to do. Just posting this to get thoughts in order, and to hear words of wisdom from other people who have gone down and faced similar recovery. Thank you!
