about 3 laps into 2nd qualifying.
first time out after accident. didn't even make the grid.
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!
Im still riding the Street Triple alot, just need to get my next bike sorted next year sometime, still not 100% sure what I want...
How about a nice Harley?
Ridden one already, dont think id buy one... ever
Back from hospital today!!
God damn im sore, damn bone graft hurts alot! cant really do much moving without it hurting, even laughing can cause agony lol
Arm aches today but glad its not the pain I had last night on the Ward, Bled in the night too, soaking my cast and pillows
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?
Cheers Griffo! Im back to hospital in 2 weeks to get the stitches removed from my side and arm and maybe get a new cast for 2 weeks, but they said around 8 weeks recovery! Ill feel alot better once these stiches are out my hip lol
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!
Blimey! That's some full-on repairs going on!
Get well soon dude
did you ask for your cast in kwak racing green ?
Of course there was no yellow
Thanks Scort, I know haha ive come away with more scars on my body than when I had the accident
Cuts heal and leave scars, CHICKS dig scars
Theyve got no choice now
Thats my dream of becoming an arm model gone now, unless im modeling zombie stuff
Well after 18(ish) Months I have been given the all clear from the hospital
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
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 now to raise £11k for an S1000RR....
Oh, and if you manage to get hold of an S1000RR, we want lots of pics to drool over.
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.
Good to hear you've got the all clear, must have been a long 18 months!
great to hear your recovery is all complete.
