    mmmm.... the threat from the wife is one thing....but to be honest, its a good excuse for me not to go back on the road...... ive had bikes all my life man and boy, i seriously know how to ride a bike, but after the last,very near death experience, i think thats it for me and road bikes........the road just isnt the place for them anymore.....
    if my leg and arm gets strong enough, i will get another trials bike and just compete on sundays for fun....i did have a gas gas trails bike wich was the boll@x.... its not really the bikes wich are dangerous its the car drivers on the road.....
    any way...ive spouted loads about this stuff on past threads and i think this is the general consensus....... the roads are far to dangerous for bikes...
    arhhgghhh.... i kick myself everytime i say that.... like i say, its a hard habbit to shake off.
    my mates just got an SP1 and its tricked up to death....im dying to jump on it and get it on one wheel weather it be front or back...... its very tempting, but i just have to think back to lying in the road with my limbs hanging off to put me right.

    kev, let me leave you with this............
    when i was lieing on the tarmac with my left arm and right leg ranging off and my right hand completly shattered anongst lots of others injurys.... i remember looking back down the road at my bike, in half, revving its knackers off whilst embedded in the front of a golf and i remember as i waited for the ambulance to come, wondering if i was gonna drop dead at any second from some internal injury like a snapped rib wich has spun round and slashed my spleen in two or my heart could just give up.........i remember thinking..... im gonna die now, and feeling such an overwhealming feeling of dissapointment.
    i later gave it all some thought and the conclusion i drew was that all the enjoyment and buzz i got from riding bikes,having/ maintaining bikes, being part of the bike scene and generaly living bikes...... was just not worth dieing for....and being faced with the reality of death, so close, i realised it was simple, i like living more than i like riding bikes. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jump.gif

    I can really understand what you're saying to me mate, I really can. But here is not the place to discuss this, as feelings runs very deep. I'm off for afew days, but when I get back I might just pen you a PM.

    Maybe you can put me off riding.

    Poor old gibbermonkey, looks like his season is well and truly over. I think maybe rossi should sit out a couple of rounds to cheer the others up a bit!

    They where some injuries Myzeneye, are you 100 % from the crash now. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]
    yeah...kind of..........
    i crashed nov 2003 and now we're 18 months on.... i went to the hozzy last week for a check on my leg, which is still full of steel....and the x ray showed that the femur is still largly broke....18 months on !!!!! they said to go back in august and if its not any better, which it wont be, they'll hack of some of my hip a graft the bone onto my leg. the rod i have is called a femural nail, which is hammered in through the top of the hip right down to yhe knee and then bolted in place,......this is the second nail ive had as they keep doing it to stimulate bone groth as every time they tw@t it in it breaks the leg,encouraging it to grow more..... it was supposed to be out now but the femur just hasnt healed.
    also, im waiting for a phone call from the hozzy to go in to have my hand reset...their gonna break it all and put pins in it. sounds great. but i need it doing..my grip is **** now and thats no good for a plumber..... also i cant squat or kneel which is not good.
    my left arm is good,weaker than it was and full of arthritis pain,but o.k
    biggest injury was my mind, it took a good ol' batterin'.....id say im only just over that....my solicitor sent me to a shrink who said id been pretty messed up and need de-sensitisation treatment, what ever that is...post traumatic stress...but hey....
    im not hard as nails....just mostly nails.
    i got married three weeks after the second leg nailing and went on a cruise to norway, so i was determined to get up and be actice even if it was on crutches!!!
    ive been back at work a while now, but couldnt go on working for british gas as they are slave drivers, so i took the easy option and went to work for the council..... i just about cope and manage to do the job but its hard....espescially working on a broken leg.
    the bone is broken but the metal work does the job of the bone, but all the muscles in my leg are fooked, it gets tired and stats hurting real quick......
    i somtimes think i shouldnt be working and i should go on the sick to recover but i wont, its just the type of guy i am........ i wont give up.
    so take heed bikers....the road is full of stereo adjusting, make up putting on, boy racer, old ladys just waiting to turn your life upside down..... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif
    if the injurys dont put you off, think about the 12 months i spent off work UNPAID !!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif

    Glad you are getting better now mate!!

    The guy who took me for a blast was involved in an accident last year. Was sitting at traffic lights and some old boy (60+) went into the back of him.

    Broke a lot of parts, not as bad as you!! But was off work for 8 months and even wehn he went back could not do much. He ended up havig to quit because his back could not cope and found another job. The guy who hit him didnt have insurance or a licence and only got about a £300 fine!!

    The bike he was on was another R1 and it was only 3 months old. (Red and white)

    He is on his 3rd one now and it is black. He is a pretty good rider can do all the wheelies and stuff. He uses the bike every day for his work and goes touring quite a lot.

    Cheers.

    OK - this weekend's MotoGP comes from Jerez in Spain, the home race for Sete Gibernau.

    Now that the Gibbermonkey has crashed out of the running for the title, will he pull out all the stops to grab a home win? Will he resort to running Rossi off the track? Will Edwards live up to his reputation and challenge for the lead, or will it be the young and fearless Melandri who takes top spot.

    This race has too much going on - don't miss it!
