+100. if u really love to ride get back on it but if your "afraid" then just let it be. for me? i started riding again asap after the bike is fixed and/or your healed up. yes i was a little nervous but after bout 5 minutes all of it was gone and i became a better rider; more cautious/aware. ride on...

ive been in 2 wrecks. my first one didnt affect me but the second one did.

as soon as i got my cast off i strtd riding again. yes it was scary and yes u


dont ride the same as you used to at first but then you start getting over it.

if you really want to ride again you should. just take it easy and go at your

own pace. if riding is something you can live without and youre fearful to the

point that it may endanger you more in the streets then you should wait or

not ride again.

Either you want back on, or you don't. The only person that can make that decision is you. Each person has to confront their own issues/fears/limitations.

If you want back on, consider taking the BRC again. Don't have to worry about trashing someone's bike and you should have quite a bit of confidence back at the end of two days.

Good luck with your decision.

I didn't my pants on the cbr. I gave it a little gas a few times. I felt in control. I will wait for my pelvis to heal up nice and sturdy and get back out there. As for now I will putt putt around neighborhoods at very slow speeds. I noticed turning and such was a little unfamiliar.

I appreciate the comments everyone. I know most of you know me personally and know I can be a dumb at times. I jumped in way too deep and paid the price. I will start over from scratch. Learn the basics. To be honest I learned how to ride off of youtube. So I will scrap all that bullshit and start all over.

Your record shows your over anxious on a bike as it is w that many wrecks/close calls on each ride. Bad habits are harder to overcome once established vs slower, proper progression.

He all broke up too. Hes had 3 bikes since. Cant be afraid. U love it u love it. Now i roll GSXR 1k All Day, All Night, All Ova.

I know some of you have had rough wrecks. I just wanted to know how long is "long enough" before getting another bike? How do you get your confidence back? How do I get rid of the fear? I just don't wanna give up bikes...
got a link to this wreck thread?

After my wreck (~70mph on the HOV) I finished the ride to work and then it took me about 2 months before I rode again...had to heal up and then find a bike. I will say I felt very rusty when I got my bike (my 1st SS) and I was a lot more cautious, but it all comes back so just hang in there man.

i was in a bad accident and throw me into and electrical pole and i got another bike a week later while on crutches but i let my bike sit up until i was able to walk. I was scared for alittle bit when i went riding. then I saw everyone passing me up and thought about i wouldn't give up my love for the bike and finally started back taking the curves it to me about a month to start back taking curves i still have the fear of going down but then u think u can just get hurt walking down the street. It is ok it takes time for some people. Don't be scared or embarressed

Since the OP bumped it. . . .


I've never been scared. I've jumped back on my bike within minutes of wrecking at triple digits on the track, and close to it on the street. It's just never affected me.

I had my accident in victoria, after my bike was checked over... I had to ride back a few days later. Both of my feet were pretty screwed up, but other than the socks it was just a little bit of pain that only presented itself when i walked/put my feet down.

It was scary and it took awhile to get back in the groove of riding
