I'll put my 2 cents in....

What everyone else said. Either do it, or don't.

7 years ago I spiraled my Tib/Fib on a scooter and was NWB for 9 months...

As soon as I got a release from my ortho I went back racing.

You don't need a excuse to ride or not ride. Your a adult.

Get away from all the bad habits and bad situations on the street.

Get a track . Cheap. Ninja 250.

Take every ounce of instruction you can from the trackdays you attend.


You will live longer and be a better rider for it.

I can see how you felt

One of my good friends (who I didn't think would crash) went down and after the accident he was scared and he wasn't the same, now when I ride with him he takes it really slow (he hurt him self really bad).

Me in the other hand.... I broke pelvis and tail bone and I couln't walk over a month. Then as soon as I could put weigh on my leg I went out riding, it felt so different and I was still hurting... I couln't wait to get back on it.

Then a month after I got better I crashed my buddy's bike, I hurt my self on that one and I had to stay home for 3 days with out moving.... Then I got hit on my R6 and rode that home.

I know that people that crashed and picked their bike up to ride it cant really relate to how you feel... but for those that actually broke something and the accident was bad have an idea on how you really feel.

I got some pocket bikes at home if you wanna get started it!

Any ways.. I love riding and can't see my self giving it up or not trying.
The only thing that did affect me was having a friend dye in front of me on one of my rides BUT thats a different story.

Hope you get better and sooner or later I'm sure you'll be back on it!


edit: OH .... TOO LATE! LOLOLOL

The way I see it, if you're scared to get back on after an accident then maybe you shouldn't be riding in the first place.

I'm good now but after you lose some skin or fracture or break some bones that blows . I couldn't walk for a few weeks but I forced myself to get moving. Especially since my big brother and all my friends would work on their bikes in my apartment complex. I hated being locked up.

Slow and steady. Get back in the saddle as soon as possible and just take it easy. I went down twice. Got back on as soon as I recovered to keep from letting the fear take control.

Everyone is different. Jumped back on my bike 2 days after my last wreck. Wanted to the first day, but my mom and wife begged me not to. lol

On the other hand, my wife dropped my cbr 600 while stopped, and she's still scared to drive one again.

So everyone is different. Don't go outside of your comfort zone, just take it easy.

None of my wrecks have bothered me much... but it took a long time to feel like riding after my buddy Pigpen passed. Still have days where it just don't feel right so I leave it parked.

It depends how much you want it..
Take baby steps.
No rush.
No time frame.
It will come back once you are comfortable and mentally ready

false.

not sure what happened, but get back on it. there is some initial shock at first (depending on severity of accident) but it goes away.

for me, the worst part about a bike accident, is not being able to ride.

I got on my bike 2 Saturdays ago after I was knocked out. I rode it home 18 miles with no helmet or glasses since they was busted. I was not scared. I was in shock and kinda hurt though. I do not know when I get my bike back if I will be scared. But everyone that knows me here knows I love my bike. I think I will be fine. If not then I will keep trying and trying and if it takes me months to get over it I will over come.
Just ride man if that is what you want to do. If you need someone to ride with let me know. I play caretaker in groups, ie watch cars keep tabs on less experienced riders. Ill ride with ya.
