    Man, sucks to see youre hurt. But at the same time, if you were "almost killed" and able to sue/post here the next day you must recover like superman. I've had patients in my hospital take months to be able to speak after bicycle accidents.

    Keepin' a good thought for ya sir! I was hit on a '48 Schwinn Phantom about twenty years ago too. Recovery sucks, but just take your time and take it easy.

    that sucks. I'd say I've put at least 15,000 miles on various bicycles over the years, luckily I never got hit. came pretty close on more than one occasion, I used to keep a big buck knife under my seat for those who were offended by my middle finger.

    Wow, lucky to be alive. Hope you recover soon!
  21. Whoa ! Luck to be typing for sure.
    Rest easy and know you'll be in my prayers
  22. What difference does that make?

    I'd consider it some form of therapy. The O.P. can lay in a hospital bed, stare at the walls and worry about their condition, or they can be yaking to us and feel a little better doing it.

    I know a guy that was in a motorcycle wreck. He talked up a storm 5 minutes after being hit because his mouth wasn't damaged but his pelvis was.

    And your point is?????
