Oh dear, sorry to hear that.
That will mess up summer.
Pop back up soon and recover quickly.
Rapid shin repair prayers are coming your way.

just talked to the surgeon, theyre putting a steel rod in my fibia. It should compliment the two steel plates in my right arm nicely. Couple more breaks and I could classify as an android. I feel alright now but thats because they have me on morphine and ketamine. Gotta love that Canadian health care. The biggest downside to this is that I wont be able to ride i. the memorial ride I planned for my dad. I organized a great ride and bbq and am expecting 30 to 40 of my dads closest friends and I wont be able to ride. fml

There are two categories of motorcycle riders..those who have fallen, and those who will..
All the best as you recover!

If it jams, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

Sorry to hear of your injuries. Get well soon !
You had that blue Corvette bike looking so good. But it all can be fixed including skin and bones.

thanks guys. I havent seen the bike yet but my buddy went and retrieved it from the ditch for me and says it doesnt look that bad. I have lots of time to fix it since I wont be able to ride again for 8 to 10 weeks. Thats assuming my wife will let me, lol.
