Thank you :)  I’m all healed up these days, as healed up as I’ll
ever be..  I got 95% usage in my leg back and, in my arm, I don’t
know - I can’t lift the left one above my head, but it doesn’t slow
me down too much.

And, I haven’t owned a bike in 4 or 5 years. In my riding days, I must've
been in at least half a dozen accidents, but they were (almost) all
minor - dropped the bike going downhill in the rain and the brakes
slid out, dropped the first bike I owned a couple times just learning
how to ride, stuff like that. The only BAD wreck was with an ancient
1989 Ninja 1000R that I picked up for a great price. It was well
past 20 years old at the time, but still beautiful and had great
potential before I destroyed it. As it was, I rode it around for a
few weeks, and it had a few issues - the suspension was screwy, and
it was running very rough. So, I got the carbs cleaned, and it
transformed the machine. The front wheel would pull up from stop
just from acceleration (and this was a heavy fucking bike) - it was
fast!  But, the suspension was still a little fucked up, and just
a few days out of the shop I flipped the fucking thing going about
45mph - broke my helmet in half down at the bottom where the face
plate came dislodged and slid down. I wouldn’t have a face if I
hadn’t been wearing a helmet :)

Anyway, I kept riding for a while after that, but for whatever
reason it’s been a while since I owned a bike.. although, I’ve been
feeling that motorcycle itch again lately… who knows :P
