    The criminals will probably return the bikes...once they figure out what they got. :)

    I hope he had insurance and if not, hard lesson learned.

    I've been wondering about his right arm. I thought it was slinged-up just because of the broken collarbone but I've never seen any movement out of it.
    He has unbelievable spirits, I'm pretty sure that I couldn't do that. :bow

    I don't want to be a downer either, but since I've had some spinal injury problems in the past, I've been watching intently too. I know no real details, because I have not talked with Noel. But yes, he has never moved right arm or more importantly his hand or fingers that I've seen. Plus I can't remember if he has every moved his legs without assistance? I wish Phil the best, but this might be an extreme life changing event for him.

    If you look at the early vids, he was wiggling his toes. I hope that's a good sign.

    If he can get his arm strength back, he will be back riding. There are paralyzed MX riders.


    I've been following the progress of another trials rider hurt going fast. Search Johnny Ringo on Facebook. It's been a year and a half for him so Phil has a long road ahead but he is younger so it should be quicker.

    Every time I start to whine to myself about my minimum paralysis, when I see someone in a chair, I remind myself it could have been a lot worse.

    He will definately overcome this accident. Once they have you standing, the hospital will soon release you.
    I was in 5 1/2 months before they let me stand. ( 16 individual pieces of bone between knee and ankle, total of 1 yr in hospital, 8 bone grafts, and two more years in cast)
