Thanks for the comments man. Sorry to hear of your own discomfort. Years ago, for many years I was racing USCF category 3-4 and was involved in many crashes. It’s a miracle I was never killed. After that I always felt motorcycles were actually safer than bicycles. Well, at least a lightweight road bike with a fit rider aboard. Speeds too high. Braking capabilities so limited because of lack of rubber on the road. Nominal safety gear (helmets at the time were just coming into being and were huge and cumbersome and not many riders had or used them). Speaking of rods in legs, I had several people say internal rods were superior to external plates. This was said to me before my surgery. So, before surgery I relayed this concern to the surgeon when he said plates would be utilized. He replied “who’s the orthopaedic surgeon here me or you?” What you said about people seeing things through my eyes, thanks. Believe it or not, I often forget to consider the number of people following along. Over 700,000 views now. Kinda weirds me out lol. But I’ve always wanted to give back to the ADV community that in itself fostered my desire for life on the road. I guess I’ve been successful in that regard if you’re reading this.
