    Well....it happened again...I wrecked my sporty. It happened 3/30/14 I was trying to find some of my posts from the last time. Don't know how to do a member post search. Anyway..Don't know if any of you remember me from 2008 when I hit a deer on my bike. Messed up my left leg pretty bad. Well, this time someone pulled out in front of me in a packed bingo parking lot. This time I messed up my Right leg pretty bad. No weight bearing for 2 - 3 months. Surgery took 2 1/2 hours longer than they anticipated. :( im back in a hospital bed and wheelchair. My riding my own cycle days are probably over. I can still ride with hubby but will need a step stool to get on the bike. Im thankful that no one else got hurt. Hubby was right behind me on his bike and he seen it all happen. I feel bad for him seeing it but at least I have a witness.

    Thanks Brian, I found them under search posts. Yeah this time the bone didn't break the skin. Was a worse break than my left leg but not exposed. Weird. That was our first ride of the season... :( So how you been? You been out riding a lot?

    I had a wee tumble nearly 2 years ago and broke a few ribs it slowed me down a wee bit
    Had all 3 bikes out this week I have the week off and 2 of the bikes were due MOT inspection and it is a 60 mile round trip to the place I get the inspections done
    Wife was off work yesterday and took her bike for the inspection and I went with her on my softail
    temps just above freezing with a cold damp fog hanging everywhere very sore as the fingers warm up when home and the blood gets back into them, bikes may stay in the shed for a wee while
