On Friday 5/28, a car pulled out in front of me. She pulled out and stopped. Could not stop or go around, so ended up hitting her left front fender. Sailed over her hood and landed on pavement. broke right leg just below knee and left arm near wrist. L1 compression fracture also. Much pain involved, but I’m alive!

Ouch, I’ve had my fair share of crashes over the years. It happens. Just concentrate on getting better then sort your bike out.

Get well soon! I wish we all could visit you and mark your arm with signatures or pictures you don't want to show your family... feel our stream of energy and be back fast on feet, conquer Marquez!

It's good that you have injuries you can quickly recover from, and hoping your red baby can mend too. My father-in-law was not so lucky... we bought our Scramblers together but after only 3 months a car drove into the back of him at a red light, and he was much worse off, 2 years later and he still needs more surgery. No more riding for him, sadly. But so glad we still have him.

Looking forward to updates as you heal.

Wowzer !! So sorry to hear this. I too have had a few street crashes which resulted in broken bones and at our age they take a lot longer to heal from. Here's hoping your recovery is not too long and not too painful. Take it easy and get well soon....

1 week today! Painful, yes. Mostly just difficult to move around. My children and wife have really stepped up. Bike is home and in shed. Looks like front fender, front wheel, right mirror, farings would get her back in order.
Porsche has been moved and is on maintainer, won’t be able to drive it for a while.
Video of accident not very impressive. Seeing it makes one think I could have driven around her. I was worried she might pull forward. So I plowed right into her during braking.
Too early to make decisions on giving up bike. Giving up for today and near future for sure!

Super sorry to hear this. Accidents are no fun. Having family to step up and help is a really great thing, though.

Your bike will be fixable in no time.

Heal well.
