I crash and the board goes with me???




#1
Sorry to hear the board took a dump while I was out.
I'm glad to report that I'll live to ride another day.

A Lexus SUV ran a redlight in front of me, I hit it about 40-60mph...ouch!!!

It sent me flying through the window on the driver's side and out the window in the back, spinning the SUV 90 degrees with the impact.

A serious break of the left leg just above the knee is the most obvious injury with lots of minor bumps and bruises.
No road rash thanks to my leathers.

They've got me on Morphine and Dilaudidsl, unfortunately, that only brings the pain down to a dull roar.

My luck with bikes this year sucks!!! The good thing is that I won't be riding anymore this year, so it can't get any worse.

Welcome back Danno
I know exactly what you are going through and you are a very lucky fellow. You get Morphine and Dilaudidsl all I got was Oxycodone. In March 2000 I missed a turn and hit a tree at an undertermined speed. I broke all three bones in my right leg and managed to break the fibula twice. The femur heals very quickly so you should be back to normal in no time. I just went for my last doctor visit 12/6/02 and got the go ahead to get all of my hardware removed. I have rods through both the femur and tibia which are being held in by three screws each. It looks like I am going to have this done sometime in early March. May be I'll set it up on the same day as the original surgury was two years earlier. Kind of like a two year anniversary kind of thing. HAHA
Look familiar

Hey atleast you went thru high class windows. Those Lexus SUV's are pretty sweet.... better than going thru a 88 bronco II at the very least.

Your luck will be much better next year I'm sure of it.. mainly because it can't really get much worse at this point.

I was upset to hear of your smash up and a glad you are on the road to recovery! In one window and out the other, 90º spin to an SUV? Just how "bigger" are you? You owe your life to God's grace and your helmet- a guy went through the back window of his Explorer just down the street from my house and did not get home. He was talking on a cell phone and slid into an oncoming dumptruck. Again- I'm very glad you are OK.

DANNO! Glad to see you're home. I'm sure you'll be all better by the time Laguna rolls around next year. Are you finally in a cast yet? Did they finally figure out that the SUV ran the light? Mail me your # so I can call you.
