Skipped to end of thread to add my congratulations on surviving a serious accident, disappointed by a lot of other stuff I'm reading.

I had a similar accident- higher speed but far less injury. I managed to clear the truck and fly through the air I guess... got my head bolted in a steel cage for a couple of months but can't complain! There are things I can't do anymore but I'm so glad to be alive; no use crying over spilt milk.

Happy new year, and stay positive! Cheers
-Ian

Thanks y'all. I appreciate all of the comments, even those I don't agree with, or find a bit abrasive.

Life is good. Very good.

Ride smart. Stay safe.

On a more positive note, I'm delving into a full refresh on my 55 Chevy pickup. I may not ride motorcycles anymore, but maybe the local guys will let me sweep for them and haul their broken down stuff home for them this summer!

Godspeed my friends.

I am very appreciative for the all volunteer fire-fighters and rescue squad personnel who attended to my needs on scene. I'm appreciative for the MedFlight pilot and crew who stabilized me for transport. I'm appreciative for the surgeons and medical teams who expertly rendered care. And, I'm so thankful to the God of the universe who breathed the breath of life into their lungs, and blessed them with the gift of healing. These wonderful "PEOPLE" did not save my life. God spared my life, and these wonderfully talented "PEOPLE" played a magnificent and mystical role as instruments of His glory in the process.

You see, my faith leads me to believe the god I thank is not simply "god." I thank the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, whose birth we just celebrated. Yes, you even acknowledged His birth in your closing expression "Merry Christmas." Yes, I thank Christ. I thank Him, for without Him I am nothing.

May God bless you in your journey my friend.

Amen brother.

And... glad the OP made it through, the human body and mind can sometimes endure quite a bit.
The firemen and medics, definitely deserve a kudos, their job is a really tough one.

Since this thread already got off track, I'll take it another direction and request the OP post pics of his '55 Chevy truck.
Glad you made it through the crash, man. Thanks for the story. Keep the faith.

SRMN8R,
I don't get it. You gave god credit for saving your life but no blame for the crash that almost cost you your life and would have cost you your life except for the paramedics, doctors, etc that really saved your life.

Anyway, I am glad that we have the people and technology available that saved your life.
