Had stopped raining an hour earlier. Third cul-de-sac rotary on my way out for a morning ride at 6 AM. Fastest two mile time I’ve ever recorded... Then I slid out at 3 o’clock position. Maybe hit some acorns or oil or just rain slick. K1600GTLE is fine because I was on my Trek!

And just at the start of Florida’s riding season! Bummer.

Broken shoulder.

Now I’ve time to plan more farkles!!

Good luck with that repair.
Brings back some very painful memories from July.
Best.

Get well soon Phil..



PS..

Get one of these!


Not a bad idea! My Trek was the first new bike I’ve had since college and man is it fast! Like riding a sheet of diamond! But now I have to look at the whole program and you never know where it will end up. I’ll heal - I can see that. Maybe I won’t be so stupid on wet turns! But maybe I need to reduce the risk or increase the safety?? Motocross gear? Airbag underpants? *Three wheels*??!

Thanks for the kind thoughts guys; I’ll see you on the roads sometime this spring! :)

P.S. bike is fine. Scraped the shift lever a bit.

Curious to know exactly what they did to your shoulder, is that a rod and screws?

**** - Sorry about the slide..... PT is a pain, but will make all the difference in recovery...

WATCH OUT FOR OAK TREES in Florida...... I have a bunch around my house and they are throughout the area... Right now they are dropping acorns all over the place and it's like riding on ball bearings... I have to back out of my garage and they can really mess up your day !

You can go ATGATT just like your motorcycle!

Seriously though.. I love the trike.

Two breaks: clean across so that required the vertical rod; second was tendons ripped off the top of the ball joint so screws to pit it back. Docs say exercise will fix over time.

Yup. Know them well. They shoot out sideways like bullets when you drive over with a bicycle. It’s possibly I hit them but I’ve ridden that corner hundreds of times. Maybe I’ll look more carefully or not go out so close to a past rain storm!
