********************, that sucks. Good to hear you were wearing the right gear. I'm with Wynne on this - head back and try to figure out what happened. Next time you might not be so lucky.

Get well soon!

mate youre here to tell the tale,
a pretty good bottom line...

loss of memory etc, may be due to head trauma,
but just to be sure, wouldnt hurt to mention it
to your gp or other medical professional,
just in case the 'black out' happened first..

for ACL if thats torn or damaged, recommend
aside from typical physio, strengthening around knee etc,
glucosamine + chondroitin + msm which aids in new
formation of the substrates around/upon which
cartilage etc forms.. think long term tho..

HGM, WGO excellent advice will have positive
benefits well beyond curiosity, knowing,
and preparedness for future situations..

Good point crashing sucks. Hope you have a speedy recovery

Glad you're ok mate:

Before the crash I assume you had eaten that day, were well hydrated, blood/alcohol normal, not taking any other medicines, not preoccupied and had a decent nights sleep. Strange as it may seem these are all risk factors.

From what I can tell/remember, I took a corner late/had a bad line (stupid mistake), went off road, lost traction, and went down hard, slid for a while then the bike flipped and landed on top of me. my visor lock mech was stripped from the helmet. Insurance guy is looking at the bike on monday, honestly I'm terrified of it now, but if I don't get back on soon I probably never will.

It's way more fun to be sweating than bleeding.

Hi Chrinupp, Good to hear you are still recovering physically. In a weird way it is good you have some fear as this will help you to keep focused. If you were not afraid I wld worry that you wld climb back on the bike and feel you are invincible. I want to encourage you to take the time you need to heal and to not force anything before you are physically ready. If you are determined you WILL get back on the bike. There is a saying I like, which is "A person has to WANT to ride"!! It is this mentality that keeps ppl riding. If they didn't, then situations such as yours wld get the best of them and they wld give up. It is that determination to ride successfully that helps us thru the learning curves and picks us up when we literally fall down or crash. If we truely LOVE riding then we overcome the setbacks and press forward.

Don't give up my friend. When you are well, climb back on that pony and ride

Here is the album of the damage, from what I can see it doesn't look to bad, but then again, I cant bend down to see under it. Bluejay won't start. The handlebars go way past what they normally do, the framsliders on both sides are bent to sh*t, the fairings are stripped off and hanging on by maybe one or two screws on both sides. Have my ortho appointment on thursday to see if I can stop using the crutches, get the fluid drained from my knee and see ACL damage, I did have a minor concussion which caused me to blackout the details. I read over my sheets they gave me:

Good to hear your doing as well as you are. Get better soon! Better Bluejay coming down on you than an 800lb cruiser.
