spencert231 Posted May 14, 2011 Report Share Posted May 14, 2011 Hi I am on the recovery trail from being involved in a serious road traffic accident: 5 weeks in hospital, fractured pelvis, detached stomach muscles,torn Aductors and serious bruising to thelower back and right shoulder. I amnow in my third month of non-weight bearing and can even carry a cup of coffee from one room to another, its a real "ball breaker". Accident happened on the evening of Feb 8th 2011,in Kilburn, London. I try and try to recount my steps to see if there was something I could have done differently, but alas NO! I was in an overtaking manouvre on seriously slow moving traffic when a gap appeared and a car being allowed to enter the traffic flow shot through and stopped in my path. The rest as they say is history. I have read and heard only good things about this forum. I wish to learn from my accident and make people aware to expect the unexpected. So for the next few months I must be content on reading and living my dream of getting back on board the bike. It will need to be a new bike as mine was a write-off. When its time to get back on I have decided to get some training in and get my skills re-evaluated and not allow this to happen again. One thing I will definately do is get good quality riding equipment. Unfortunately some of what I was wearing needed to be cut off me. I always remember a Nurse stating: if you were not wearing such good quality equipment, you would be in a much worse situation". So no expense will be spared on my new equipment and being seen. My spellchecker is not working so hopefully I have not done too bad lol Spencer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
