On the long weekend I was stryck by a vehicle turning left at an intersection. The details aren't important as I'll be dealing with Ikkybikky shortly..
It was a very serious impact and from everything that the medics, witneses, local paper, and police have said am very lucky to be alive.
I severely dislocated my elbow abd fractured my wrist (same arm) in several locations. I compressed 4 vertebrae, had my eye swell up like those weird fish, and have bruises and sore spots all over. Considering the crash I'm just happy that I can still walk.
My sister was killed in a motor vehicle accident two years ago and I cant imagine the pain my parents had when police officers showed up at our door this second time. Because of this I've told my parents I will never ride on the street again. I consider myself a very safe and responsible rider and never thought an accident like this would happen to me.
I love riding and often found it to be my release from the pressures and stresses from every day life, I don't know what I'll do without it? So for you people that have hd serious accidents what made you comeback? Did you comeback? What changed for you when you did? Or did you go into things like dirtbikes or track only riding?
At the moment its hard to imagine getting back on two wheels, but I know once I'm 100% something is going to be missing from my life if I don't have some sort of bike.
Ride safe everyone.
