3 weeks ago heading home after a great ride, even with a new member from here.
After stopping for lunch, I had to screw early and got t-boned. Fractured my sternum in 3 places and broke 8 ribs. Got some cool titanium jewelry and a FAA Card for metal detectors. Collapsed both lungs and ofcourse some road rash because my kevlar lined Jean's where dirty, and I didn't want to wear them. smdh
Had all my gear on so saved alot of skin.
After spending a week in the SICU, got moved to a trauma recovery ward with a super nice private ward, I was told.
Fast forward to yesterday (saturday) I was released from the hospital and entered an acute rehabilitation joint. Today was my first full day of working with a personal OT and a PT. No doubt it's going to be tough, but my will to go home is ALOT stronger!

Bruce, I'm so sorry to hear about Your Crash Bro.
Thank God that You are here to tell All of Us about it.
Take Your time recovering and listen to The Doc's and do as they recommend.
If Your Glide can't be repaired it surely can be replaced.
Take care and heal up with a speedy recovery.
Mike U.

So sorry to hear of your accident and injuries, but I guess you can take some consolation from the fact that your injuries weren't worse .... though it probably doesn't feel that way at the moment. Follow the Doc's and PT's instructions and heal fast, we're all pulling for you here. Best of luck to you with your recovery. Let us know how you're doing every now and then.

God Damn. Glad you're going to be ok. That totally sucks. Been looking at the airbag vests. This makes me want to do more than look.

Bike totaled?

Bikes are replaceable, you are not. Good to hear you are recovering. BTW, your post was going so well until you added a pic of some ugly dude lying in a bed. :grin:

Holy Shit Bruce.........No Bueno Amigo...........but you are here to post about it and for that, I am glad.

Enjoy the Meds (but not too much, they have a way of setting up shop and refusing to leave without a fight) and don't skimp on the PT.....don't push it too hard either............I am not good at this advice crap, fuck it, smoke 'em if ya got 'em
