    I'm stoked!

    I took my first steps without crutches today. I was involved in a head-on collission May 15, which severely sprained both ankles, bruised my feet, and broke my right fibula. Needless to say, I have not walked in two months much less rode my burner. I seen the light at the end of the tunnel today. I should be up and ridin by the end of August.

    sorry

    Sorry about the non-description. That is my left shoe trapped by the floorboard. I had to pry my left out of that shoe and crawl out of the driverside window. I need to post pics of my feet but the pics are so big, I have to re-size em. Oh yeah, my co-worker went to retrieve my belongings out of that truck and he had to pry that shoe out with a crowbar after he broke the seat back.

    Ho Lee Fock. That truck looks like it spent some time on CC's roof rack.

    Glad to hear everyone around here who took diggers lately is on the mend.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Jeez, what happened? You pretty much vaporized the front driver's side of that truck.

    What happened?

    A 16yr old girl hit me head on May 15th- she lost control on a wet road and crossed the center line and we met. The accident report estimated a 100mph impact! My feet are still recovering but I will prevail.
