    Man, I can't catch a break!!!!! Thought I was finally healing and got to ride my new bike for the first time. Then the infection comes back and then X-rays find another broken bone in my hand. Well it looks like bone might have to come out and they are going to do a partial carpal tunnel. I was wondering if anyone has had this procedure and been able to continue riding. I have already thought about putting an EZ-clutch on my bike to help with shifting. I sure hope Karma is paying back the driver who hit me and fled. Don't want to sell the bike but if I can't ride it again no sense in letting it collect dust :(

    Man, I can't comment on your injury or whether you'll be able to continue riding. But, I sure hope you get to keep riding. Can't imagine what I'd do in that situation. Best of luck and I hope everything works out for the better.

    I have a friend with a fused left wrist. It took a little while but he rides just like before.

    Not willing to give up just yet. The doctor said powerlifting is probably out of the question and I probably agree and riding a motorcycle is one of the last hobbies that I'm still allowed to do that I like. Looking at woman and fighting were eliminated once I got married.

    I bet someone could rig a foot clutch for you if you need it.
