Cool came croppa

Thursday night, it was about 5pm, I was just going home to Caerphilly from Glouster. (On my trike)It was dark and absolutely pisisting down. Just came off the forge roundabout going up the bypass.went to go into the far outer lane, clipped the curb of the central reservation with my back wheel,then went for a flying lesson,
In short I'm now in hospital with pins n plates in my ankle, waiting for swelling to go down after opp. So they can put full cast on,{up as far as my man bits)

Oh bugger!

You broke the rule didn't you - the one that says "Never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly"



Hope you heal quickly!

Flying isn't the problem. It's the landing that hurts.

Hope the ankle mends well.

That looks bad, I hate to say this but perhaps you would be better off with four wheels, maybe a jeep or Suzuki Vitara..

Cool

No, it was a case of clipping the kerb with a rear wheel.
No mater how many wheels. It would have happened.

I sympathise! Such a relief to be home isn't it? In spite of the difficulty presented by everyday life.

Never know what you might get if you ask the nurses nicely...

Bad luck, stay positive! My daughter got hit by a van December '12, and goes for remedial surgery on the metal bits next week... it might take a while but you'll be fine!

Cheers,

Hrolf
