I was riding last weekend when seat bounced a little popper that pogo'd me over the handlebars. I broke my wrist (scaphoid), broke my elbow and broke two ribs. I miss being comfortable.
I miss my sleep.
I miss good sex.
But most of all.
I miss being able to ride.
I hope we all heal quick so we can cut hot laps again ASAP

Was actually just a little off that kinda crunched me real bad (must be getting old) The mrs is being really good but keeps getting cranky at me when she finds me in the shed tinkering with my bike hahaha
She'll never understand

Keep us posted mate , hope you get sorted with the Mrs too ay :)




How's Uncle Mick going???

Hahaha, im getting there mate, karlos can send his endones to me lol. Bloody shoulder starts aching all the time im on my feet and is pissing me off, cant lift my arm much at all without the aid of the other arm, guess I was just hoping it would all work fine and I could just get back into everything, but its gonna be baby steps from here for a lil while. Got physio tomorrow morning which will just be more stretches which is all aimed at getting back the movement I wish I had. Apart from having little patience for this crap im doin pretty good mate, just wanna go for a lil ride but cant risk anymore damage to the shoulder. Hope your collarbone has been good mate and good news on the races at VCM with the points bud.

If your that busted up there is no way you should be out in th shed playing with the bike Jeeez.... You should be resting on the couch inside... With the bike sitting next to you, then you can rest and work at the same time :)

Heading back the fracture clinic today for a check up. I'll get my cast off for some more X-rays before getting another annoying frecking cast put back on. So over this thing. Watching my arm waste away to a twig, realizing that even when it finally comes off for good in 3-5 weeks my arm will have zero strength and will need weeks of rehab before I will be fit to ride againImageUploadedByTapatalk 21372206915.579318.jpg
Big guns.!!

They left the cast off now. Doesn't feel ready. It hurts every way I bend it. I can't even open a beer

Hope Micko n Karlos are on the mend!!
Question for you guys ... Can u recommend good knee braces or pads , think I'm better off with braces as my right knee is totally screwed n has been since my early teens , left knee is getting smashed now too and I'm looking for something comfy to ride in but most important to give me stability n hopefully stop me from doing any major damage , will a knee brace fully protect the knee ? And /or will it cause me to brake something else instead? Like how a neck brace will save the neck but transfer impact to collarbone / shoulder ?? Any advise would be appreciated

Soz mate, I can not give you any feedback on knee braces, but considering the price on the better ones id say that they take a fair bit of impact off your knees and also being braced they would help to slow or hopefully prevent hyperextending the knees when pressure is applied.

Me, my shoulder is really becoming a pain in the ass, it is actually giving me more trouble than ever lately, had to stop my physio stretches as I think I may have broke what regrowth had occurred, is a shoulder injury meant to be more painful than others, not sure, All I know is I wish it was just a dislocated shoulder, id be laughing out loud right about now.
