i shouldnt be saying this but a family friend(psycologist) was having a discussion with me the other day that one of his patients got into a motorcycle accident and now he's scared to get back on. That is completely normal man. If someone ripped you off, wouldn't you be nervous to do buisness with that guy again? of course. Look there's an old saying "once burned, twice shy". All riders who fall feel this, your truly included. Just stay off the freeway and practice turns around your neighborhood. If you can take a group ride with advanced riders and you'll be back in your comfort zone before you know it. Good luck!

happens to me alot when riding on the street. i just dont feel safe riding around on the street, i see every car waiting to pull out of a parking lot.....and freak out.

i get enough thrills at the track, so i mostly stick to riding the track only.

Thats how I feel everytime I ride in the rain/wet.

My suggestion would be to find a sweeping curve that has little traffic. practice that one corner over and over. Just be able to hold a steady line, then feel comfortable changing your lane position, then slowly speed up to where you are comfortable.

Glad to hear you are "man enough" to fess up about your feelings!

+1!!! I'm always afraid that someone will rear-end me! I stare in my mirrors when coming to stops and when stopped. I realize this is a weakness of mine, and that I am more distracted by the cars behind me than anything else. I seriously do this in the car, truck, or bike. It's a hard habit to break, and I've never even been rear-ended!!

First wreck(lowside) I got right back on and felt fine. I highsided last year though, and it took about 500-600 miles(maybe more) to start feeling normal again.

just be happy that you are capable of riding again so soon. Give it some time and everything will come back.

does that mean you are scared to turn your back on her? ...I got rear ended at a stop light a couple years ago. I am still weary of cars behind me.

don't look at it that way.... look at it as a life lesson and use it to make you a safer, more aware rider.

Friend of mine was at a redlight on westheimer, it was 10:30 at night, and he got rear ended by a lady in a van at 50mph. This was thanksgiving last year. At first he couldn't wait to heal up and get another bike, but now he's hesitant and keeps talking about the reality setting in of what could have happened. He's almost done with physical therapy, but I really don't think he will ride again because of the mental constraints.

I'll never ride as " out" as I did in my teens and 20's , I'll never hit another triple jump at the motorcross tracks either. I went down 3 times a couple weeks ago at a motorcross track 2 lowsides and a highside (track was really dry) and just kept getting back up but I still was riding way more cautios than I used to and It's not the same as an 80 mph highside on the street either, I would just chill till you feel comfotable again, And riding fast on the streets is a good way to end up at the pearly gates early.....
