New from Georgia.

Back at it after a 6 year vacation from a serious run in with the asphalt monster. New to the RC, not new to bikes. Figured since I was starting over, I would start out right. Found a black '05, and it's been lovely.

Holy crap!!! That's pretty wicked. How long did that take to heal? Will you regain 100% use of your leg? I'm guessing not. Sorry that had to happen to you, but you're back. And a wiser rider for it...

There's a bone in there somewhere, but damn if I can see it.
Looks like a bad multiple fracture. Hope you didn't get any nerve damage.

Major malfunction there. Pretty good nerve damage in about 50% of my leg. Broke both bones. Pulverized them for about 4 inches. Also broke right arm and dislocated elbow. External fixature from thigh to ankle for 3 months. Knee to ankle for another 4. 16 surgeries in all, just on the leg. 12 I think on the arm. Wheelchair for 6 months, had to relearn to walk. Took about 2 years total to get close to 100%. Maybe about 90% now, and that's all it will ever be. Arthritis is getting me now, and not but 40. Have a knee replacement to look forward to in a couple of years. Bone split all the way into my knee socket. They had to put it back together with 6 titanium screws. Have 12 titanium screws and plate from elbow to wrist in my arm. Had bone graph from hip to stuff in hole in chin, and boner from a deceased Marine Corp Staff Sgt. in my arm who died 2 weeks prior on an R-1. We were stationed in Okinawa Japan when all this went down. Totaled a brand new Buell Lighting, only 568 miles on the clock.
