Well, I broke my leg. And I wasn't even riding!
I was rolling the bike up the ramp into the van to drive up to ride in the desert and I was having a hard time with the last oomph over the lip so I did what I did last time, carefully snuck around to the front. This time instead of pulling in the bike I got almost to the front and I think the front wheel turned right and that caused the bike to start going over. I tried to save it and the next thing I knew I heard this horrible noise as my right knee went SIDEWAYS.....

Finished dropping the bike to end up laying in the back of the van thinking I had torn an acl and dislocated my knee. After my neighbors got my bike put away, locked up my house and then called for an ambulance. Got xrayed at the er and my tibia is broken in 2 places right below my knee.

I'm laying here with ice feeling very sorry for myself. Getting taken care of by friends and my uncle. Off to Kaiser in Riverside for Otho appt and to see if surgery is in the cards.

I am sooooooo going to miss riding with you all and meeting new people from the forum.

Ride on folks and have a great time!

Sue, sorry about the leg. Words of advise....leg up and lots of ice. Stay off of it. Leg up and lots of ice. DAMHIK. My ortho said even several weeks after the break, leg up and plenty of ice!

So Sorry Lil' Sue

What a shame, about your leg. I was looking forward to meeting you. From your posts, you sound like a great person to be around. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Patrick

Sue, that is some really bad luck right there! The only relatively good news is that bones grow back strong! They will fix you up and riding will be back on the schedule in no time! Just take it easy meanwhile.

sue, i can't believe it. really sorry to see it happened to you. the rally is set with you taking a major role and show new noobs how things get done.

we will miss you. maybe someone could give you a ride and at least be there for the camaraderie.

just give me a shout and see what else we'll be able to do for you.

get well and we'll wait for your quick recovery.

Thank you all so much for the well wishes - it really helps! If I'm fit enough I'll figure out a way to get to camp!

I think that makes me (#202) and MC3-D3.

Also... asked Ersin awhile back to put me in site #27 with Rich and Rob (if they'll have me).
Guessing he was a bit excited about riding in the jungle and forgot.

Really looking fwd to this year's event. Can't believe how well Joel and crew set up last year's event.

Bringing the Husaberg again with mtbjeff and another KTM990 buddy, and perhaps others.



Joel, looking fwd to checking out some more Sprinter mods you've made.
