As most of you may have heard, I broke my leg on my 700xx on May 25th. I went to the doctors today for a check up on my leg. I took a few pictures of it.
Yep. I used my X-Ray Bat Camera! LOLWow, you,ve got a see through leg or some sort of awesome camera... lol..
Ouch, snapped right through the tibia and fibula..
Even though I'm Native American..... I'm Brown skinned...thin build...and have a big nose......I've fit the profile since 9-11. I travel a lot and ALWAYS get secondary screening. Then again....maybe they think I'm an AIM activist? LOL I seriously doubt that.WOW! I would be crying like a baby! Those breaks look crazy.
You probably will end up on the TSA's hit list now, you'll never clear a scanner again! lol
I've had people tell me to have it taken out because of exactly what you said. I do a lot of wake boarding as well and I'm quite active with other things. I dunno if I really want to take the risk of possibly having another injury to my leg again and causing even more problems. uugghhhh......I dread having to go through another surgery to have it removed. Not a pleasant experince.If it's permanent and you have the same crash again, it will shatter the bone. In the UK they opt to have them removed after 18 months. You will still need recovery time , once it is removed.
Glad to hear this.Well it's been over 2 months since I jacked up my leg and it's been an experience to say the very least. I wouldn't wish this 5hit on my worst enemy.
I've been gradually moving around and doing things that I wasn't able to do when I first got injured. I tossed my dayum boot about 3 weeks ago and then tossed my friggin crutches last week after nearly killing myself going down the porch stairs. Now I'm using a cane. It's alot easier and less of a pain compared to the crutches.
I was sitting on my porch (deck) yesterday evening around 6 and was looking at my 700's that were covered with a blue tarp. I haven't even looked at them since my accident. My friend brought them home and covered them up for me the day of my accident and they haven't moved since.
I went inside and grabbed the keys, went outside and hobbled down the stairs and walked over to my 700's. I tossed my cane to the side and began to untie the tarp. When I removed the tarp, my 700's were completely covered in dust and one had a rear flat tire. I unlocked the cable-lock and removed it, dusted off the seat on my main 700 (Jeckle). I got on it (took me awhile) put the keys in and fired it up. Good lord it was nice to hear it once again. I let Jeckle warm up for a few minutes and once warmed up, I snapped the throttle a few times...."damn I miss riding" I said to myself.....
Fuggit....I put it reverse and backed it out and took Jeckle for a spin. Man it felt so good to be riding again! I had to take it real easy though because I cannot put much weight or twist on my leg. So turning was a challenge. I had to sit and lean in to it a bit in order to turn. This proved to be quite difficult because my natural reaction is to ride like I always do. And everytime I did that it hurt like hell. After about 15 minutes of riding around I took Jeckle back home and locked it back up.
It will be at least a year before I am fully healed and can ride normally. That day cannot come soon enough. But going for that ride yesterday was awesome!It really made me feel much better.
