    Routine run down Junker over at P12 and went down in the roughest rockiest section. Broke a few bones in the left wrist, and there is some tendon damage. Beat up my right knee, hip, and shoulder.
    just got back to work to finish up a couple of interviews and waiting for the bone doctor to do the eval for potential surgery prior to a cast.
    Worst... I dented and scratched my helmet! That does it! I'm buying a new bike!

    There goes my opening 2017 season, ha ha!:(:mad:

    Damn, at least it was on your bike? When I first read it, I thought maybe you tripped and fell at home, and might have to give up a new Yeti for a new Walker, shod with 2.7 inch, yellow, fuzzy balls.
    Heal quick!

    That really bites... Injury time is the best time to transition to a new bike, though. You know- A clean break and all. :p

    You'd look really good on one of those new Yetis... :thumbsup:

    Breaking bones while riding your bike must violate a couple of rules. At least. Stop doing that. :thumbsdown::stop:

    And get a new bike. :thumbsup:

    Heal up and henceforth keep the rubber side down.

    Pick one, got a few
    Broken wrist, torn up tendons and beat up body parts and you're still at work? Bummer and on a backyard trail you've probably ridden lots of times. Knowing what a tough dude you are I'm sure you'll heal up & be back in action soon. Also knowing you as well as I do I know you're too proud and stubborn to ask for help so I'll make sure Cathy knows to call if you guys need anything or you're not behaving.

    Feel better my friend and if we need to spin pedals on some smooth bikepaths or fire roads to keep you from going stir crazy let me know. Oh and can I go with you to pick up the new bike...?:rolleyes:

    Bummer on the wrist! Heal up quickly. And yes, I think a new bike is in order. The current Yeti must be tired of you to throw you off like that.
