that really sucks what happened

I know this is a Quad forum and this was on a motorcycle but from eyewitness statements and my brother being only a few seconds behind me here is what I believe happened. I pulled out of a resteraunt where we stopped for lunch. Pulling out I turned right and went up a short hill and into a long right hand turn. For some reason I began to wobble. I wound up standing the bike up and crossed the double yellow. When this happened I struck a car head on. We were both doing around 50MPH so it was about a 100MPH impact. I damaged the undercarriage, the bumper, grill, hood and windshield. I set off the air bags and disabled the car. On the bike, I wound up tearing the seat off with my legs. I also broke the handle bars with my pelvis and tore off the front fairing and windshield. As I was flying through the air I glanced off the windshield and landed about 30 feet from the car, unconscious and busted up bad. I don't remember any of that day and my brain has blocked several weeks around that time. As far as what happened to me, the list is as follows: Broken pelvis both in half and the left leg socket is broken, cracked the right leg socket and broke my tail bone loose, I broke 4 ribs and punctured my right lung, even with a helmet, I had 3 brain bleeds and a concusion, I broke a bone in my left wrist and have tendon damage in my left hand and forearm, there is also nerve damage in my left leg and I have trouble movimg my left foot, I seperated the A/C joint in my right shoulder and have pain in the rotator cuff of my left shoulder, this doesn't even include the soft tissue damage. Then while in the hospital, I developed a blood clot and had to have a filter put into the main vein against my spine just below the kidneys. I have been through more than 9 hours of surgery and now in physicical therapy. This is what I can piece together. I may never really know what happened. As for the bike, the insurance company totaled it.

Man that would suck atleast your still alive. I hope you have a full recovery and you can get back riding again.I have a friend that was in a bad bike accident. He had a 93 year old man back out right in front of him. He was in icu for three months and them rehab for another three. His whole left side was busted up and he got a blood clot in his brain. He's a lot better now he graduated college and can drive but he never got back on a bike again.

Well like your friend, I too am not going to ride motorcycles anymore. I have too much repair work and metal in me now to chance it. Even riding quads I am sure I will be taking it a little easier.

      So with this mess going on outside and the stay at home thing happening i wanted to ask who's getting what done around there house, apartment and property or toys? 
        I honestly cannot believe what my wife and i have accomplished over the last few weeks.   Unfortunately we have worked ourselves out of work!!!    I have to give all the credit to my daughter for the below listed work. She came to me a few weeks back and said daddy since we are stuck in the house can we do my room over.    I was in a keep away from everyone hunker down and lets just get through this Coronavirus mess.  She changed the entire direction of our mood and how we would push through this.    I have painted all the kids rooms and did a make over per say for each of there rooms. While the painting shit was out i decided to continue and paint the moldings over with one coat of semi gloss in the entire house.    After that we decided to tear the closets and drawers apart and sort out all clothing, donate what we are not keeping etc.  I picked up a couple of shoe racks to organize my sneaker collection from BJ's $20 bucks for a 3 tier rack.    Cleaned every nook and cranny of the house, windows, walls, radiators, ceiling fans you name it including pulling the furniture out and getting behind everything! (Scary back there) lol.   Shit we even did the inside of the oven with easy off!  That stuff is no joke btw..... I assure you we are clean people but after pulling the furniture out and the oven and refrigerator i have to say we need to do better with that shit.     We decided to go  to the back yard and see what we could do. I went ahead and painted the foundation walls, added mulch and set the furniture up, bbq included.  I added some cool light stringers across the yard as well from Amazon.      We are looking at what to do in the front of the house next.     We made a list and tackle a little each day, Saturday and Sunday are big task days. Im still working so afternoon tasks are maybe an hour or two each day.   We have been very productive to say the least.  I feel like this is the perfect time to make the best of a bad situation and it keeps our mind off of the shit going on in the world while we work.     This may sound like a lot but making a list and tackling realistic goals at the end of each day works well. Plus a lot of 🍺  and 🍷!!!!! The kids have been helping out big time and we try to keep it fun.    We hopefully will never have the chance to do this again but i was wondering who's doing what if anything at all.  Our regards go out to anyone that have been affected by this virus weather it be family or friends.    I recommend making early trips to Home Depot and BJ's and the grocery stores to stay away from crowds and lines, its a ghost town early in the morning.      Believe  it or not that Suzuki Eiger is fixed but still needs to be put back together and here i am on Quadcrazy asking who's doing what around the house but the Suzuki can wait for a little while. 
        Keep ya head up and stay motivated!!!!
