Yeah, things can change for the worse faster than you can blink. I am very glad to be one of the lucky ones though. My life will be going back to normal soon enough. If the other driver had been going faster, or I had no helmet, or if the other fellow had driven over me instead of just slamming me, etc. etc. my change for the worse could have been permanent. I am still amazed, though, at how many people on here just wrote to wish me a speedy recovery. What a great group of guys you all are. I'm glad I found this forum. Tons of info on motorized bicycles for whoever needs it, and people who care. It's all great!
