Well its been along time since i've read or written much of anything on the forum. but for good reason. I was hit on my bike january 24th. I was heading north bound on Us hwy 19 in Palm Harbor, Florida when an idiot turned left into my lane while heading southbound and struck me head on. I hit his left front bumper and fender. He severed my left ankle,broke my left femur,fractrured left pelvis,3 broken ribs, lascerated spleen,both shoulders dislocated, left one fractured, I was in the hospital for 3 weeks and have been in a wheel chair since. I now have 5 screws in my ankle and a titanium rod in my femur and not sure whats going to happen with my left shoulder since its been 10 weeks and i cant use it still. I was in danger of losing my foot but after going to the docs on friday things are looking pretty good;not out of the woods yet but atleast 95% better. but for my bike its destroyed i loved that bike it was trophy winning. i had 7k in the motor alone its been left to a pile of rubble. not ony did he hit it but another car hit the bike again while it laid in the middle of the road. the worst part is the guys insurance didnt even cover the book value of the bike if it were stock. so i'm on the road back to walking again and will be able to ride again eventually. Just glad to be a live. SO EVERYONE BECAREFUL OUT THERE THIS YEAR NOT EVEN INTO THE BEGINNING I'VE BEEN TAKEN OUT AND A FEW OTHER PEOPLE I KNOW OF ALSO. THE WORSE PART ITS NOT JUST THE BLUE HAIRS DOWN HERE IN FLORIDA THE PERSON WHO HIT ME WAS IN HIS EARLY 40'S AND ANOTHER GUY I KNOW WHO GOT HIT WAS BUY A 30 YEAR OLD CONSTRUCTION WORKERS LATTER THAT HE DID NOT SECURE DOWN ON HIS TRUCK. !!!!!!!!PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION MOTORCYCLES ARE EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
