Great, love your positive attitude. It would be so easy to fall into the trap of bitterness and self pity, and I applaud you for not letting that happen. The new helmet is a great sign of that attitude. It will be there when you are ready. I just took my new Shoei (GT-Air) for it's first ride yesterday, it's a great feeling.

It felt really awkward. Mind over matter. My mind is telling me I can't do it but my body is saying go ahead it's ok. It does ache a good bit so I know I'm really bedding it in good. lol

My breakthrough came with a session in the physical therapy pool. That allowed me to walk for the first time and I got a pretty good workout. Then the next day I did my at home exercises and it just sort of happened. So now I'm down to using a cane for assistance.

I have two more sessions in the pool scheduled for next week.

uninsured motorists

This is a text book example of why I pay the $ for all of the uninsured and underinsured motorist that I can afford. I read an article in the ama magaizine about this and how it can ruin you if someone has just the minimum insurance provided by law. Everyone should check this out!!!

How about an update? How is your recovery coming along?

Sorry I haven't checked the thread in a few days.

My recovery is coming along extremely well. I goto physical therapy two days a week and have been swimming in a neighbors pool on the other days. It will be eight weeks on Monday and while the bone has more mending to go I can walk on flat terrain with hardly a limp. Life has mostly gotten back to normal although I no longer sleep very well. I used to be a very sound sleeper but for the last month or so I can only manage a few very fitful hours a night.

There hasn't been any progress in finding the perpetrator. I think about him sometimes and wonder if he is thinking about me as I continue to recover.

I believe I will ride again in eight more weeks.

Hey B72, I read read your thread today and wanted to post a reply, but didn't think I could add anything that hadn't already been said.

I hope your recovery continues well and you are back on the bike soon. You obviously have a great attitude which should help in a speedy recovery.

I am amazed at the concern and generosity of our ADV family.

Great to hear

Glad to hear your recovery is moving along ... and your positive attitude is something that all the inmates can learn from. I guess the police have probably given up on finding the moron who hit you, one day they will have to pay their dues.

Need to have a Party at Beasley's Books one evening.. ...

You know Kelly was already getting burned out with the day to day operations of Beasley's so when I had my accident I think she made the decision to call it a day and close up shop. To be honest as far back as when I returned from my trip last year I noticed a change in her attitude concerning the business and I knew in the back of my mind it was only a matter of time. It was awesome while it lasted though. Good times... :)

She is still trying to figure out what to do with the place. For the sake of our marriage I try not to meddle. I definitely would never say "I told you so" because she would just point to my leg. Touche.

9 weeks 5 days later and she's home. It took about an hour of work and new handlebars to get it road worthy. A few more parts and it will be as good as new. :):)

Oh and the ride felt awesome! But I will be patient and not start riding again until I fully heal. I do not want to screw up the progress I've made.
