My D is no longer.

Riding to work last week I think an end to the life of my 06 D. I know I don't post here much, but I still read a lot so I thought I'd let everyone know. I bought this bike back in March. Only managed to put about 3000 miles on it this year. I literally had like a mile and a half trip to work that morning, with only one intersection, but that was enough. Some lady coming head on turned left in front of me, I smacked her drivers side headlight and went flying. Ended up breaking my femur twice, tearing a PCL and possible ACL, and have several fractures in the foot/ankle. I somehow managed to tear my heel open and have about a 4" laceration there as well. I haven't gotten to see the bike in person, and since it's in a fenced in compound a friend was only able to look at the good side. Still looks like bent forks, handlebars, and the rear shock is jacked up. I'm anxious/nervous to see how much happened to the other slide where it impacted and slid. I'm still in the hospital tryin to learn to walk again. Only made it about 20 feet with crutches today. I lost a lot of blood and leg strength so I can't do much without getting lightheaded.

Here she is at the tow lot.

Heal up well. Make sure you get a fair settlement from her insurance -- sounds like you'll be on the mend for a while.

The bike can be fixed or replaced.

Wow-- best wishes for a great recovery.

From past experience, the physical therapy SUCKS. Words do NOT describe. But, keep your end goal in mind and do exactly what the PT tells you to do-- it's well worth it in the end.

Heal fast and good luck!
