wow!

So sorry to learn of this. Please heed the Doc's advice and heal up quickly.

Lots of us have blogs in out sigs...perhaps between the blogs and the forums, you will find enough "bike fix".

My heart goes out to you....

Some of us have been there (see RM's safety thread) and the rest of us are waiting to be there sometime in the future. Very sorry to hear about the crash... and although the broken bones and scraps will take a while to heal, you were still able to walk away (no pun intended :nono: ).

I know you'll be coming back stronger:thumbsup:

Heal quickly my friend, the SoCal trails await....

OMR..:cool:

Get Better Soon Dude!!

I've been nursing a shoulder injury since November. Doc says looks like arthritis. I say BS since I was fine before I went OTB!

Anyhow...GOOD LUCK!!!

getting better

even if it is not obvious. visit to the orthopedic surgeon confirmed no damage to the patella or bursa of the knee. :thumbsup:

1- outside wound on the knee has improved.
2- bruising on chest and back is starting to subside.

4 weeks until i can ride! thanks for all your good wishes! it means the world to me! :yesnod:

Wow, you definitely couldn't tell the severity of the bruising until those last shots! Heal up quick, but don't rush it. At least it happened in the cold season.
