Excellent!!! Get after it!Me too. It gets old hobbling around. Ive advanced to 1 crutch now. Can't ride until I can support the whole weight of the bike with my busted/healing leg but by gosh I'm working toward that goal 🐉
Aww man!?!? So glad you’ve recovered and the bike is fixed! Yea…I didn’t want to create a separate post about my slide bc I know yall be concerned about me; plus didn’t wanna deter new riders on here. I also wanted to notify yall once I had good news to report lol. So, I’m gld I found this thread…it’s like our “crash/accident” thread lol. 💚Sorry too hear about the crashes, @Tracy and @TaiMc. Crashes suck for sure. I crashed in April at the track. Totally my fault, I got on it way too hard in my 1st session 1st lap of the season. Cold track, cold tires, over confident rider. I know better but still got bit. Slight concussion, grade 1 shoulder separation and an ambulance ride to the ER. The damage to the bike wasn’t too bad, fixed it up and was on the 3 weeks later. But my confidence was shot until mid June. View attachment 21050 View attachment 21051 View attachment 21052
This reminds me of the time I broke my leg and was in a cast from crotch to toes for 6 weeks. When they took off the cast I looked down and said “where’s my leg?” It looked like my arm.Excellent!!! Get after it!
I was told that once I can have my boot removed I’ll need to go to physical therapy. I’ve lost all muscle in my calf due to inactivity. But I try to work on my thighs and lower body and ab area when I can. I think I might be in a condition to ride in late January; but I’ll need to discuss with my dr and PT.
Hopefully, we’ll be able to ride soon! 🤗
Haha…yup me too! For it being my first spill, I think I’m okay with the way things turned out. Definitely learned a lot and just sooo happy I don’t have to rebuild my bike or buy a new one.Dang, TaiMc too!?
Good to hear you are recovering and that it could have been worse, but yeah still sucks.
Both of you get better soon>
For me, hitting upper 50's and lower 60's here but that air having a chill about has me packing it in for the season.
The roads never really warm up enough with the nights being cold or sometimes nearing freezing.
That's a great way to turn this crash into a win! 🏆…I figured I might as well hold off and enjoy being debt free for the first time in my life since before college.
Plus if I wait…I can get the bike later, pay cash and still be debt free after getting it.
LOL! Stop it! Thanks for the laugh, but I'm looking forward to PT! No pain no gain and I'm aiming to be back to normal.Hey Tai, you gonna love phys. Therapy. Otherwise known as PT or patient torture! I'm 4 weeks in and about done. Good luck. It has done me a whole lot of good but I'm still old n ugly. Didn't help that
