Re: Crashed on Autobahn

That's a hell of a long time to be in the hospital!

I wasn't there more than six days... But twenty?

Do you mind giving us some details?

Heal well. It'll come... Prolly very slowly but still the same...

I'm about to be able to walk, five and a half months after the fact...

Cheers

So glad you survived.

Re: Crashed on Autobahn

I really hope / pray that your healing goes well.

Although we all have different opinions about bikes and the way to ride them, we suffer and feel for any rider that has an accident. It is a BIG family.

There is something to learn from every accident and I am glad that you freely posted the details here - thank you.

I'm really, really glad that you made it.
Take the time to heal, and to count your blessings.
Only you know the details of what happened, your state of mind, and as in every miss or near-miss, what we can learn from it.

Be well brother.

Hope you heal fast. Thanks for sharing how it happened, a warning to all of us about our gadgets. I've got a GPS, and I'm considering carrying it in my coat pocket and just listening to the spoken directions to avoid the temptation to fuss with it while underway.

Just saw this...what a shame but I'm glad it wasn't worse. I hope you have a speedy recovery!

I think about gps distractions frequently. With the nav v and the wonder wheel it can really be a distraction. Adding music to the mix is a major distraction to me so don't listen to it much!

It's maybe time for an update.
How is that leg doing?
Are you mobile yet or still confined to a bed?
Is someone helping you out and giving you some support?

Looking forward to a follow up.

Cheers
