Naw, that itching is just from your staples.

BTW, C-Stain, I appreciated the detail about your crash and injury. It's interesting to me that your injury was so very painful. I guess it's a matter of physiology and nature of the injury. When I broke my leg (open fracture of tib/fib, plus fractured ankle), I had no pain at all for about 20 mins. I was alert and conscious the whole time.

ahhh, that thing called adrenaline! Craig was awake and quite comfortable for about 40 minutes after his dismount, then the adrenaline wore off and the pain set in. You have to note, he was laying where he fell for about 2 and a half hours and it was getting awfully chilly as the dusk set in.

I'm glad to see that even when Craig was in pain, you guys could keep him entertained!

Yeah - it looked like he was shaking two dried peas in a brown paper bag... Disturbing, yes. Entertainment value, qurstionable!

I take it that when you mentioned you'd like some Dry Sack, LGB didn't realize you meant a bottle of sherry.

Hope you're healing up Craig . . . just heard about this from Amedee.

Those beemers get jealous when the KLRs show off, try to avoid hanging out with those low lifes.

Oops, I ride a DR . . . pot / kettle.

Thanks, Tree. I am coming along. I have about another two weeks before I can think about weight bearing again.

I think the Beemer is going to be really jealous when I sell my V-Strom and bring home a KLX or a TW200 for the more gnarly off road trips. .

This won't stop me - just gonna slow me down a bit.

DRZ-400S, perhaps. Or an SM, and pick up a set of dirt wheels off eBay which is what I did. Then you can have your off-road bike and on-road stoppies, too.

Although the DRZ does come with a little hooligan devil that sits on your shoulder and whispers "faster- it'll be more fun... Oooh, that looked like that hurt. Sorry about the cracked ribs." At least mine did.

If you really do not want to fall, and if you do fall and you don't want to get hurt, the TW200 is tops.
The only bike I rode a lot in the dirt without falling.
They are REAL good at that, and going through sand/swamps...

I had one after I recovered, because my wife would kill me if I got busted up right after I was back in operation...

Hey C-Stain how's the weight bearing coming along. Will you make an appearance at the Bluenose rally at the end of June?
Hope you're making progress. :)

I hopefully will be weight bearing by next Wednesday after my next appointment. And yes, we are planning on spending the whole weekend at the Rally - I may not be riding, but I'm looking forward to it and seeing everybody!

Just the thought of the ambulance ride over that stuff makes my leg hurt all over again. I did mine in the middle of Toronto. The ride over potholed city streets was bad enough.
In my case they tried the plate first and the bone wouldn't heal. Second try was with the pin down the centre and I walked out of the hospital.
That was two years ago, my foot still has nerve tingling constantly but it's getting better.
I can't imagine having to pay for those surgeries.
Heal well.
