I'll make it. I keep telling myself that it will all be over one day. It just takes time.

I saw my stepdad's mom waste away from kidneyfailure due to taking all sorts of pills all the time. No thanks.

If you don't wear a helmet, how do you avoid the bugs? A bug splashes across my visor nearly everytime i ride.

Just the other day, i had my visor open for just a few minutes and a bug flew directly into my eye. I barely made it home and then i had to pick bug legs out of my eye. It was pretty gross and it hurt.

When I started riding street in '85, all this gear stuff wasn't around. If you were a "responsible" rider, you donned a lid, and maybe a leather jacket, whether it be motorcycle specific or Tom Cruise Top Gun Bomber style. But even that wasn't a big deal whether we wore a jacket or not. Riding in a t-shirt or a tank was the norm, actually. If you laid it down, you got road rash. It was expected and an accepted risk of the sport. No big deal... tough it out. But back then, I was 18 years old, and I didn't care if I got road rash, or pizza elbow, or whatever. If I got a big scar? ", that's a big scar!" Need a skin graft? "Well, that sucks." That was the prevailant attitude. They hurt, but they heal. ATGATT meant wearing a DOT helmet.

NOW I think.... Forget that mindset! I am so glad that technology has advanced so much, and safety gear has become so easily available, that I would be stupid not to take advantage of it!

Keep in mind, (IMHO) any jacket or armor is not gonna protect you from an accident approaching or knocking on Heaven's door. It's still gonna hurt, and you may still break some bones, but at least if you have a typical getoff situation, you won't be all rashed up, or have to deal with the possibility of a skin graft. If a rider doesn't care about the rashes, then don't wear the gear. But always wear a helmet, at least.

Now I wear gear all the time because I don't want to deal with road rash anymore, and my body doesn't heal as fast as it used to.

A dragonfly will just about knock you out if it hits you between the eyes.... don't ask how I know.

Thanks. Last night was really bad again, but it is a bit more bearable this morning. I am just glad it isn't worse. I couldn't even begin to imagine.

Hope you get better quick - is it still the foot that is the most painful?

Maybe you could try a holistic approach to dealing with the pain. Like acupuncture. I think there's a place on Jones near Powersports that does that kind of thing.

I use chocolate.

I've been pelted in the forehead more time than I can count. Luckily, I never lost conciseness. But even when I ride on the back, I still manage to get hit by a bug. :laughing6

For a few days it was the shoulder. Accidentally did a stupid move and it popped really bad and that carried for several days. Since yesterday, it is the foot again. Last night, it was both including the backpain. And that was with quite a few Tylenol extra strength pm.

You have no idea how I wished I had worn better boots. At least that. I could handle the rest. That is why I get so ticked about seeing folks with tennis shoes or flip-flops and shorts. Nobody should have to go through this.

That is just down the street. No the name of the place? Maybe they can cut a few nerves or numb them.

I was looking into getting a pair of Sidi boots. Since your crash i've been confused about what kind of boot i should get. Would you still recommend a Sidi street boot?

I was considering these...

I wish someone had told you about the boots - I would have had I known - I think you would have listened. Do you think you will continue to ride after going through this? Hopefully so.

I can't remember the name but i drive by it everyday. I'll look tonight and PM you the name. I might get stuck at the light long enough to write down the phone number too. I HATE that stop light.

Thanks, I don't recall seeing anything like it. If you can PM me the number, I'd appreciate it. I usually commute up and down that street to work but since the crash have been staying with my boyfriend.
