Best wishes for your recovery Rybes. Shame about the bike but as Ian says, the important thing is that you are still around and can use the time to plan the rebuild!

Can anyone change me login name to rybey the robot

Cheers everyone gunna be a long road till I'm workable again but everyday it gets closer

As for the next project I'll either rebuild what bits I got if possible but the streetfighter build will still be goin ahead. The good bit is if I need a new bike that'll mean I'll have a spare complete engine. So you know what that means....... v twin tiger
ive just got my first vtwin and i think i got the right one

Yeah bad ya right does sound a bit iffy. I'll be keeping an eye on him if they ever meet

Well today's the day of me xrays. Today I'll find out if me arm cast can come off and I can start to walk on me leg again. I did try hopping the other day all I'll say is it didn't go well and I've never seen me missus go that white before   
I asked one of the nurses here if she knew how much all this is costing from the day I got picked up all the ops n drugs etc. I got told millions. So glad they have an NHS style service here or I'd be sneaking back to the uk soon

I'm happy. Got told today my legs healed enough to start walkin on it so I had a go and at the moment I walk like one of those dressage horses lol just need to get tendons n muscles stretched now.
On to the hand
Cast is off and have to go back in 2ish weeks to get the pins out in a small op. Thing is no one knows how much use I'm goin to get back. I said as long as I can pull a brake lever I don't care. Who knows if I can't get enough use back out of me hand I may never get back on a bike. Aparantly I done a real good job of wrecking all the muscles tendons n bones that make ya hand work oh n the fact my thumb was only held on by a small flap of skin otherwise it wouldve been a nice key ring. So now the fight really begins

Good new Rybes  - On the other hand ....oh okay I know, but if you is gonna do a job do it properly yeah.

You can always use a thumb brake or even put the brake in a different location maybe ?

Rybesy, I've sent you a more detailed message on Messenger buddy Thumbs Up

One day at a time, stay positive.

You will be able to ride again, one way or another buddy. Worst case scenario with some modded controls. Don't worry!! Thumbs Up

Not been on these forums for a while so I'm gutted to read this, Rybes m8! Get well soon and as others have said, stay positive. I nearly killed myself 27 years ago in a HUGE bike crash whicj resulted in me losing my Spleen and have a massive fracture of my right Femur which impacted on my Femoral artery. It was touch and go and at one point there were TWO surgical teams working on me in the OR - one sorting out the Spleen, the other team sorting out the Femur. The docs said if I hadn't been in as good a physical condition as I was (I had just completed 16 weeks recruit firefighter training) I would have died on the operating table.

Fast forward 27 years and I still have lasting effects in relation to the accident which plague me physically from time to time. However having been through all that dark and dismal experience, I will say one thing - maintaining a positive mental attitude is the key to emerging out the other side. Your likely to have good days and bad days m8. Treat the bad days as a challenge. When you are feeling sh*t, face right up to it and kick it into touch. You WILL get there in the end. 

Best wishes and speedy recovery bud. Thumbs Up

Rybes, as everyone has said don't rush the recovery.  There's a lot of experience from more than 3 corners talking to you here matey, take it slow and do it right.

It will also give you more time to plan the rebuild Thumbs Up
