SNIP Typical Marine, always having a Soldier bail em out ;)  Chet


I'm just glad nobody was watching me when I was making sure Trey's back wasn't broken.  That would have looked weird coming up on the scene and seeing me check for a priapism.  But I knew that it was a possibility the way he landed.  I felt like I was back in the sandbox minus a firefight.  I knowTrey would have done the same for me too.  ;)

Trey,

I know it's a lil early yet but when you get a chance, and feel up to it, can you tell us what gear you were wearing and how it performed in protecting you?

It could have been a lot worse. Glad to hear you're doing better. Knee injuries are nasty (over 3 years, incl.hardware removal for me...), start on physio as soon as you can and stick with it. Without it, your range of motion will never be the same...

Get well soon,

Sorry to hear about the incident, but quitting is never the way to go.  Aches and pains are just reminders of a life well lived.  Your next Connie needs a turbo... and crash bars.

Carry on.

Trey, your lucky and as said, it could have been worse. Locking the rear brake got me a titanium elbow a few years back. Get ABS on the next bike!  ;D

All kidding aside, it could have been much worse and you are lucky. Just heal up and make that your first priority. You health and family come first. Then find a way to talk your wife into a replacement bike!  8)

Hopefully your doc has some good news for you tomorrow.  Enjoy your "lazy" time on the couch.  ;D

I think you should buy an 09. Then you can trade it in on a 2011. Then you can say you owned every year C14. Well at least until 2012!  :D

Wow.  Trey, I don't see anywhere in that ditch that would be comfortable to land :-\.

Hope you heal quickly.

I tore a large hamburger's worth of meat out of my left leg just above the knee last year. My doc was REAL concerned about that one. That one injury cost my insurance over 15k to fix, and it wasn't a lot bigger than a golf ball. Four months of healing enough to get a skin graft, and still healing from there....

Holes where they shouldn't be are kinda horrible.

You'll heal up good...   :P
