Wow, talk about getting back in the saddle. Good for you. If that had happened to me I don't know if I would have ridden again. So what year did you get as a replacement.On May 27th I totaled my '05 in a pretty serious accident just outside Sacramento. I was 8 days into an 11-day trip -- which had been GREAT up until that point. I broke my femur and pretty much shattered the right pelvis. A 10-hour surgery and 11 days in ICU -- plus another 6 days in a home that was provided for us by friends -- preceeded a friend arranging for a private jet to fly my family out to CA to pick me up and bring me home for rehab.
I found LT #4 (previously had a '99 and an '01) in the garage of a forum member in Pittsburgh, and my youngest son graciously flew up and rode her home. He had a bit of an adventure with a flat tire in Columbus, OH, but the BMW community rallied and had him fixed up, fed, housed and on his way again for a Saddlesore to make it home to TX.
On Monday, 4 months to the day after the accident, I rode again for the first time. Got in 123 miles, one for each day I was unable to ride. It was a simple RTE, but it felt sooooo good. I cannot tell y'all how good it feels to be back in the saddle. So what did I do to my LT today? Rode her for the third day in a row!
