    You lucky, lucky bugger...to come out of it the way you have. Sounds like you are a fit bloke which probably helped you a lot.

    Best of luck with the recovery.

    PS I bet the boss has sold what remains of the bike for scrap and has vetoed any future plans for a new one!
    Cheers,

    Can I ask what you were wearing? Did it work?
    No problem. Naughty me did not have the bike pants on for the very short ride. Added a few scratches but doubt the pants would have saved any thing else.

    Leather Jacket Sans 1986 Sydney from my first bike. Only been on the deck twice before. It saved a lot of my upper body from scraping while sliding. Same for the boots.

    Full face helmet which is a very good fit. I think this possibly helped to no brain shake

    Jacket survived - the nice paramedics got it off my broken body aware I was worried about them cutting it off. A little leather repair and it will ride again. Boots are fine. Jocks, pants and everything under the jacket was cut off me by Doctors or the paramedics

    I went through a similar ordeal 4 years ago so I can feel your pain.
    The rehab can be painful and frustrating But stick with it as those milestones and kicking goals are a real Buzz to achieve.
    I wish you the Best with your recovery Mate

    I had a mate killed in similar circumstances back in the 80s on a GPZ900R. He accelerated hard away from a set of lights and a car further up the street pulled out. Drivers don't expect the bike to appear so quickly.

    Good luck with the recovery, I've still got 6-12 months before my left arm is fairly functional, hopefully I can get enough movement out of my wrist and elbow to ride again.

    Wow ,you certainly are very lucky to still be here . Best of luck for a speedy and full recovery .

    Bikes were never my thing , lost a close friend many moons ago when he hit a cow on his bike riding from Darwin to Perth.

    Cheers Ean

    Hi,
    My commiserations for your plight. I have been close a few times on the bike, but nothing I didn't ride away from.
    Worst one was a large dog at urban speed.
    The only hospitalisation was from a front wheel jamming on the push bike at full speed.
    Take it as easy as you can but work hard with the physio.
    Cheers
