Had a bad motorcycle accident on Sep. 21, 2008 and suffered some very bad injuries.  In a nutshell, broke both bones in my right leg (compound fracture of tibia, fracture of fibula), one bone in my right forearm (radius), as well as my right shoulder blade (scapula).  I was in the hospital for ten days and out of work for three months.  My 1993 Superlight (#920) was destroyed. :o(

The orthopedic injuries, while serious, were nothing compared to the nerve damage I did to my neck.  I injured the upper trunk of my brachial plexus.  The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves that comes off of your cervical spine that control your shoulder, arm, and hand movements.  I damaged the nerves that control my deltoid, rotator cuff, and bicep.  What this means is that I am unable to lift my right arm or use much of my right shoulder.  My right forearm and my right hand, are intact.  For more information on the brachial plexus injuries, visit www.ubpn.org.

I had nerve transfer surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.  The neurosurgeon (Dr. Wolfe) took portions of nerves that were working fine and 'spliced' them into the non-working nerves in hopes that the injured nerves would begin to function.  I had this surgery on Mar. 20, 2009.  As of June 20, 2009, I don't have any return of arm/shoulder movement yet, but it is still early.  Dr. Wolfe doesn't expect to see any real return until 5 months post-surgery.  Keep your fingers crossed.

In the meantime,. I'm trying not to let this injury prevent me from doing the things I love.  I'm still out looking for snakes, and have just gotten past the pain window where I can start working on cars again..  I can drive without any problem, but my shifting is a bit slower than before.  I still cannot ride, but have every intention of getting back on the motorcycle.  That said, I'm going to sell my 1098R because it is unlikely I'll be able to ride that bike for some time due to the aggressive seating position.
