June of 2003 had one of those motor skate boards cut right in front of me driving my BMW F650GS at 30 MPH
Knocked my bike over which landed full force on my left knee, after the bounce, slid about 100ft down the roadway. Lucky for me I did wear full leathers, suffered no road rash. But my left knee and upper leg was numb, no feeling. Went to ER no major damage
Year later leg is normal and about 95% feeling has come back to left knee.
At time of accident kid who hit me looked to have broken shoulder. After I got up and turned off my bike, kid took off
At the time I was pissed, but later on I am glad he did take off for legal reasons.
Police wrote up accident as hit and run.
Sometimes bad things happen for a good reason, rehab on my knee put me back in the gym
Been working out for the last 8 months 5 days a week
