Dang man...sorry dude.

In an attempt to try to make you feel a little better I can tell you that the same exact thing happened to a friend of mine 5 years ago.

He lost his leg from the knee down.

Hang in there.

Sorry to hear this AM, even though you do ride teh evil. Devil Grin  I've had a couple of close calls this year myself with inattentative *bunghole*s in cages, and it could have just as easily been me instead of you.  Heal up, and hit it hard next year.

Dude, that sucks. Much mojo in your direction.

If it helps you feel better, I've widened my list of potential candidates to include the Super Glide.

That sucks. Good luck.

One of the many reasons a former roomate rode with his high beams on all the time.  Not that it helps all the time, but it can make a small difference.

thanks for the well wishes guys, it really is appreciated. Smiley i count myself as very lucky only having the injuries that i do. i always ride with boots and jeans on, and my leather jacket, if it is not too hot. the firemen tried to cut the jacket off, but i was gonna be the one legged man in the ass kicking contest, Boxing and they finally relented.

i live in a multi level house, so this has created quite a burden on my day to day life. i am pretty much restricted to the living room, kitchen and bathroom. i sleep on the couch with my leg elevated on the arm. it's not the worst pain i have ever felt, i've had two collapsed lungs, but it is relentless. hopefully after the surgery tomorrow it will subside some. been eating vicodin's like m&m's.

Sorry to hear that Jeffro, surgery will help you heal quicker.

Do what the Docs and therapists tell you to.  Don't try to tough it out through the pain, it only slows down the process.

The PT will be rough, don't wimp out.

Hope the other driver has really good insurance.  Sounds like they're gonna be paying for a new bike, some lost wages, pain and suffering, medical care.  ETC., dont let them off the hook for anything.

Sucks dude. Did this happen at an intersection or did the driver just change lanes into you?

Oh, no!  I hope you have a speedy recovery and that the pain will lessen soon.  Take care of yourself!
