    Tuesday night was a little rough. Got lucky thanks to always riding in full gear. Dislocated shoulder, bruising and just a little road rash. Already making my plans for both me and the bike returning better than before.

    With all the nuts out there, my V-Rod has sat in the garage for a few years now. Probably should get rid of it if I'm not going to ride it. Hope you heal up quickly.

    unfortunately it was 100% rider error. got out of the tighter corners in the canyon and was speeding up for the more open corners and higher speed limit when I took my focus off my ride and was watching brother. approached a curve a little hot and rolled off throttle too quickly causing a front end shimmy. this caused me to not get my body and head turned through the corner. Had no cell service but was able to flag down a car who gave me a ride to emergency room to reset shoulder...almost 2 hours after it happened.

    Sorry to hear it Clilff. You don't sound too bad and the bike doesn't look too bad, no?

    Dang it Cliff! So happy to hear you are mostly alright. Hoping for a speedy recovery!

    Pro tip: Have a whiskey & dew or four to help with the pain. Or come by and I will serve them to ya while we catch up

    Thanks Jim, I am doing pretty good. It will take a bit of physical therapy to recover but I will get back to the things I love. Bike is not too bad, got it stripped down and parts list is a little over $2k plus a little over $1k in upgrades.

    Aaron, thanks and LOL. Looking forward to a drink when I get off pain meds.

    Having gone through PT with a nurse sister who said push it and do everything they say (and more). I'm glad I did. `hope PT (and you) get all you can get (back).



    edit: So for the bike - plastics (which can be pricey) and a dent in the gas tank plus a clutch lever. Any other mechanical need work? Will you replace the tank or give it a re-paint and call it good. How's the used parts market for it?

    I will echo this. Best thing that happened to me after blowing out my back the second time, was finding my PT. She worked me harder than I thought I should and encouraged me to continue to push it on my own. My back is stronger than it's been, and I didn't need surgery to repair it like what was originally thought. Saved me from getting a rod put into my back. anywho, find a GREAT, yes, not just decent or even good. Find a GREAT PT and work harder than you want to. The results will amaze you.

    That's great news!

    I have family looking at a second spine operation. They sent this doc vid (possibly the same doc for the upcoming possible op) with the comment of how un-precise & brutal some of the tool use looks. www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2lHCdX28D0 (I won't embed it - click if you wish)

    For my rebuilt knee (well busted natural - not a replacement) the goal was ROM. I'd take pain meds before the morning PT session, timed so that they'd be in good effect during the session. I'd push it as far as I could. My busted knee achieved slightly more ROM than my other knee - SWEET! I'd get into the car (being driven) and I'd collapse. Back home I'd get into bed and sleep from noon to dinner - I'd be wiped out with ZERO energy. It was worth it. I'm glad my sister said to PUSH IT.

    Cliff - how bad is your shoulder (if you wish to share)?
