    Good to read, that everything improoves. Just use your muscles, even when it is unconfortable and they´ll come back soon.

    All the best!

    Glad to hear your making progress. I'm sure you wish it was going faster but at least your heading in the right direction. And I hear you on how seconds count, I've had many near misses and thought if I was a second or 2 off my trip things would have been a lot different. Any word on your eyesight in your one eye? Hang in there brother!

    Okay Gentlemen,

    I figured I would give an update as of this week.

    I was actually released from the Nursing/Rehab Facility, Insurance kicked me out as they didn't want to pay for me to be there anymore. I had basically become self sufficient in a wheel chair and got myself around so now I am now home, which is nice but I still haven't been given the blessing from my surgeon to be weight bearing on my feet yet. Next time I see him is Feb. 26th and I expect to be able to be weight bearing once he reviews my Xrays. Therefore I fully expect to be walking by the end of this month, although its going to take a while to get back to normal ability.

    The surgeon has been without a doubt not very informative which has been driving me absolutely nuts, it would have been nice if back on January 15th when I saw him he could have said he was going to restrict me from weight bearing for all 12 weeks!

    I actually went into the garage today to look at the bike...I got quite the laundry list of stuff to fix and parts to find. I've been hoarding for many years and I actually have about 1/2 of what I need already here. Unfortunately, it's some of the more expensive parts I don't have on my shelf like a new tank and a front rim. The tank has a huge dent in it on the front right side from probably the Triple Trees going into it. I also wasn't able to shift the damn transmission now which I just received 2 years ago from Chris at Big Dog which was an amazing ride! I'll have to dig into that one, but wondering if a shift fork is bent possibly due to the entire front left extended control shearing all 3 bolts.

    What I found MOST fascinating about the accident was just how those fork tubes took a huge amount of the impact and what is crazy is the front axle is bent inside the hub and the bolt sheared off holding the axle in. Oddly enough however I actually have an entire front axle so I don't need that part! haha

    My main focus is getting walking and able to move around easily so I can go back to work first! That is the priority obviously over getting the bike fixed, which both are going to be a long road. I like working on the bikes but it's rather unfortunate that it requires this much attention due to someone else's negligence, not to mention the 3 Arteries in my pelvis that were broken and almost took my life. However I was lucky enough to have the surgeons find them and fix me.

    Well I'm trying to stay sane yep, unfortunately this incident I had no say in from the beginning so at this point getting upset just won't help me recover.

    What I think I learned from this accident is heaven didn't want me and hell was afraid I'd take over :eek:. haha

    What? Haha

    If you asked what's happening with me take a look a few posts up I gave an update today.

    One thing I forgot to include is although most of you know that I've met I live by myself, I was dating a chick but we had broken up the Thursday before the lady decided to hit me and she basically keeping me from any new tail pulling abilities!! Lol

    So my moms here now to help me out and go grocery shopping for me..lol

    Hey Eric! Glad to hear you are home and things are looking up for you!! Haven't been around to head out your way for a while. Been up in PA for some training that's going to go til pretty much the end of March. Once this is over we'll have to see if you are up for a trip to RNH or something...

    Glad you’re home. 12 weeks is right around the corner.
    I’ll be in Grapevine mid March. I’d love to swing by if you are ok with that.
