    Well, after 2 months the Doc said my bones are healed. The parts came in so I fixed my ride and yesterday road her to church. After being down I went real slow at first just to get the feal back some. Now that I know what a broken bone after 50 feels like and the cost and time to fix the bike I am even more cautious than before. The ride home was GREAT. A friend said that after a fall and a broken bone and bike I am nolonger a poser.
    Ride safe and see you out there.

    See you on the road, Dave. It's very strange to get back on the bike after a few months off due to an injury, isn't it? Welcome back.

    Congratulations on your return to the wind in the face!

    Now you can get one of those patches that says "Crashing (EDITED):newsmile055:". You've earned it.
    (I wonder if that phrase goes over the edge or not...hope not!)

    Not to pick an argument or anything; but, there is an alternative that works for many. A good program of resistance (weight) training does wonder to reduce or eliminate the aches and pains after broken bones. My wife was in a car accident and broke all her ribs, tib/fib on both legs, both pelvises, shoulder (later replaced with titanium), and an elbow. Also, two punctured lungs and she lost a baby (6 months pregnant.) That was 13 years ago. After lots of diligent weight training, aerobic training, and yoga, she is almost pain free.

    My point is not to accept the pain as inevitable...work your butt off to improve your quality of life!
