I think I'm getting my legs back

Post by tom84std » Wed Aug 22, 2012 2:40 am

Since I got home from the crash two months ago I haven't been able to ride. I tried shortly after coming home but lost my equilibrium, and fell over in the grass of my front yard. Ever tried to crawl out from under a 660 pound bike quickly while gasoline is dripping onto your pants? I've fallen several times in my house since. I've been afraid to go anywhere. Didn't want to fall in a parking lot or store. It's like my equilibrium is connected to a switch that gets turned off without warning. It's been about two weeks since it's happened. I'm feeling strong. I took the bike out today. Just a short ride, but I felt perfectly fine for the entire ride. I think I'm finally coming back. Look out Colorado!

good to hear you got a ride in, but just take your time and don't push it some time the body just needs time to heal up

Man ...Sounds like something I would do...You might want to get physically fit, train a little walk run skip jump and get your body back in good order...I had enter ear issued while working on highrises, Hello... Talk about a crazy mother..I should be dead a few times now , no lie..Lucky I guess..I fell down in the man lift [ job elevator] going home one day and i was ordered to stay home for a few days they thought I was drunk... :lol: I was not and the doctor told them I wasn't..Never drank at work man..Now after work is a whole different ball game...Chicago downtown was a fun fun fun fun place to have some drinks after work with the boys ....Anyway man get yourself in good order before you ride, you could find yourself in someone else's lane with your balance off like that....Or not.. :D

Been there, done that, scary stuff.Like someone said, it takes time for your body to heal, dont push it. Your safety and others on the road depend on you taking your time.We want you back.Ride safe.
