Glad to hear you're doing better! Heal up quick. As far as the bike, it's a tough call when the wife's concerned. She went through alot of anguish, I'm sure, and she loves and cares for you. Give her time, and maybe she'll change her mind as you get better and heal up.

Great to hear your back & doing good.
You had us a little nervous there for a while.
Make sure you get good insurance & have your budget back on track before getting back to riding.
Your Family life is more important than riding.Try not to risk it.
Take care, Mikey

+1 What Mikey said. Family is WAY more important than riding. After the severity of your accident, I'm not surprised at her reaction. I would give it some time and heal up first before thinking about riding again. Glad you're back home though and on the mend.

Scott,

Glad to see you back and I can understand your wife's concern. Especially considering all the kids and the work situation. The most important thing is that you're here to ride another day, one day. Which day that is, is really up to you. Just make sure to heal up and take care of whats important.

You guys are totaly right about not rushing to get back on a bike.. I am so happy to just be here and this whole thing has changed my life.. I took life forgranted and when you are faced with losing everytihng close to you including your life it sure makes you change your views on things.. Riding is something I love but if my family dosnt want me to ride for a long time then I should respect that...after all I scared the crap out of um and its not fare to them... That post I made earlyer was the pain killers talking in my optamistic view of the future .... well peace guys and c ya soon...

+5 Take of yourself and the family first. You/they need to come first. You can always get another bike.

Glad to hear you are doing better. As for the bike, you could repair it real slow with the "intention" of selling it. By the time you get it road worthy you may have come to a decision on keeping it or not. I often wonder what I would do in your situation. Hopefully I never have to find out. Keep us posted.

TK919,

After reading your heart breaking story I felt privileged renewing overpriced cage/bike policies.

I'd sell the bike to pay down the note/interest.

Get Well Soon!

Don't sweat it. Once again, you have been given plenty of time to think about it.
Take care of your family & yourself. Let time decide on how the future will unfold.
Bike or no bike, time will tell.
I have been in the "end of life" situation a couple of times. One time as close as 20 min from death.
A couple of crashes that made me put life in a new perspective.
I even took a 5 year hiatus from riding when my daughter was born.
My last crash,where I crushed my L1, I was in a torso brace for two months.
During that time I was rebuilding & prepping my Off Road Bike for when I could get back on it.
I'm riding, Road & Off Road, & loving every minute of it.
I just keep in mind what is back home or back at camp waiting for me & that dictates how I ride & the decisions I make while I'm out there.
See....All is not lost.

Hey There man - Glad to see that you are able to post on this board and you are on your way to healing. Sorry to hear about your mishap, but as others pointed out, you can always replace a bike or fix a bike over time. Most importantly... you are here to do those things and be with your family. Good Luck with it all.

I've known you a long time TK. Your wife is usually right. LOL. Just get better, you'll know when and "if" the time is right to ride again. Alot of us that have been riding for a long time, end up in the hospital at some time or another (especially in Florida), and have to make that decision.. Don't worry about the bike. I hear they make alot of them in Japan.
