    Hey All-

    I built my first bike kit from Spooky Tooth about 5 years ago. Two years later I was hit by a pickup truck and the bike was destroyed. Now that I've recovered I couldn't stay away so I upgraded to a new badder sicker bike. I'm looking forward to finding my mojo again and going on group rides.

    We're glad you joined up. And your accident sure is a shame.

    Was it actually a three year recovery? Until you could ride a bike again?

    No, it was about a 9 month- year and a half recovery. I dislocated one of my toes, knocked my pelvis out of alignment, fractured my right arm, lacerated my left causing nerve damage and over all road rash. It took me 2 years to get a settlement and from there I had a bike frame and tank built for me, I assembled most of it and had a Venice Motor Bikes finish and do adjustments.

    Definitely glad to be back. The accident wasn't my fault, it was important to me that I eventually "got back on the horse."
