Well. That truly sucks. The important part of all of it, though, is that you are still here to tell us about it. Bikes can be replaced, riders are too unique. I hope you heal quickly and can get back on the road soon.

Thanks all! I'm doing okay. Went to orthopedist yesterday. The ankle should be good in 3-4 weeks. The shoulder/collarbone, not so much. The two broken ends are nowhere near each other, and this being my dominant arm. Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning to put in a plate and stabilize things. YAY!

I'm getting a bit stir crazy, but looking forward to the other side.

So, I'm healing nicely. The ankle is great. Started back to work this past week. I'm doing terrific since surgery to put in a plate to repair my collarbone. That is also doing very well.

I've found my next motorcycle. A 90th Anniversary R1200R (2013) with just 1600 miles on it. [Since the bike is sold, the link doesn't work anymore]

Hubby and I will be driving down to Jacksonville on Friday, and after I test ride it around - not taking chances - he'll ride it home for me. Can. Not. Wait.

Wondering if I need to change my blog's name?

Anyway. I will have put more miles on Grace (my new R1200R) in a month, than the previous owner did in 3 years. I took possession of her with 1554 miles. He hadn't even changed the shock settings from the factory defaults! I rode to work this morning, then took the loooong way home. She now has 3070 miles. I've got a weekend to add a few more miles.
