    Fireskull, hope your doing good mate, get your ass back on a bike!

    Mine has just been put under her cover, weekend job is stripping it, few issues. Such as top coolant res spits when the bike is hot (pressure from somewhere), which leaves nasty little drops that dry white all inside the screen. Another is rear tyre is bald and mainly the oil breather still leaking :(

    None the less, get your ass back on a bike!

    Welcome home! I'm hoping the pain subsides relatively soon and you have enough drugs/beer to make that time go easier. How long do they expect recovery to take?

    Back in a full cast :(
    But at least they are taking my arm more seriously this time, they want it to heal properly so im in a full cast again for a while, got all the stitches out though!

    Well after 18(ish) Months I have been given the all clear from the hospital :D

    The plate has done its job and my bone has fused together!!
    I still get some pain/aches in it but as the doctor said it still takes a year for the bone to get back to full strength, but at least there's no brakes or gaps anymore!

    I have still lost a slight degree of rotation but it wont impede my life :p
    My knee still clicks and crunches like an old man so I might pay for some private physio to see if they can improve it.

    But overall i am pretty happy :D now to raise £11k for an S1000RR....

    Glad you're better.

    Makes me feel lucky with my accident in 04. Broke my ankle in 3 places and smashed my hand up quite badly. Metal plates in the hand and metal cage on my leg. 6 weeks of plaster for my hand and 4 months for the leg, removed it and walked out of hosp then went out for a ride the same evening :) never any aches or pains in both, although my ankle clicks LOTS :)

    Wife got took out, hurt her shoulder when falling but no breaks etc. 2 years of pains, fatigue and mobility issues etc.
