This is just a quick observation that i have been thinking about for the past few hours.
Had the most amazing ride this morning with a bunch of mates but unfortunately, close to the end, I came off my 312.:bawling:
Short story, I have broken my hand and need to have an op to insert a pin to hold it all together. At the moment it is in a temporary cast and sling.:mad:
good part - I'm alive and will be back on the bikew ASAP.
Bottom line. Ever considered how people with a disability get through their day?
Do not use one of your hands at all and go about your normal day and try the following as an example:
  1. use your computer to type a message such as this one.
  2. put toothpaste on your toothbrush
  3. wash your good arm (and under your arm) - impossible!
  4. blow your nose
  5. clean your specs
  6. cut your food
  7. open a bottle
  8. etc, etc, etc.
No doubt, you too will really have renewed respect for people with disabilities.:highclap:

Very good point. Hope your OK! The bike can be replaced, you can't! It takes certain situations in life for us to sit back and reflect!

bad news you coming off dude

hope your hand heals quick (it will) and that lump of metal (312) can be repaired (maybe even better than it was before) :naughty:

almost lost my left arm in 1999, serious nerve damage, loss of use & feeling, but through the years it has got better, not 100% but its good enough
Knowing you are on the mend is good

but my heart goes out for people with perminant disabilities, the problems with coming to terms with it, the ups and downs, even the problems carers and close friends have trying to help.

Even having an injury that puts us out of action for a few years still gives us no idea of what it must be like coming to terms with a perminant life long disability
these people deserve respect

good health is often ignored and abused until you lose it

I'm glad that your OK. Where did you crash? I was at Eastern Creek today to meet up with some friends. I had too many things going on today and decided not to ride as its been very humid lately.

I help out a friend when ever I can who assist terminally ill individuals. The courage and inner strength that these individuals have are really superhuman - I am totally grateful of who I am and what I've got everytime I go helping him out.

It's always bad to fall down. Fortunately you only break one bone !
Hope you'll ride with your MV ASAP !

Sorry to hear of your get-off. I have had pins in my wrist/hand and it just isn't any fun at all. I hope you mend up well, and get back on the bike soon.

Did the hand you break happen to be your dominant hand (like if you were right handed, that would be your right hand) ??

Typing with one hand or just a finger is much easier than wiping your butt without hands. Hope you have a bidet :eek:nthecan:

Thanks for the post. It does make me think about how fortunate we all are to be healthy enough to enjoy our love of motorcycling.

Ride safe everyone.

Between Kulnura and Wollombi. Had a really great ride with some mates who are really experienced riders and way quicker than me - rode my own ride, though, in terms of pace, etc. Will have the hand op done tomorrow and should be back on the bike within a few weeks.

thanks everyone, for the good wishes. will be back in no time at all! Worst, and most stupid part of the whole thing was when I looked at my hand, it appeared that the small knuckle was out of the joint, so I tried to push it back into place, not knowing that in fact the bone was actually completely broken. I kept trying to push it back until I realised that it was not going to happen - bloody painfull to be stupid!
