Latest is that his leg is broken in three places.  They are waiting for the swelling to subside before operating. He is presently in pain and not a happy camper, in Sunninghill hospital.

Dont let the fall put you off biking is what I say.
What doesnt kill you makes you stronger.

Heal soon buddy!

Get well soon RangeRover.

HI Guys!

Mike thanks for the post and for all the well wishes!

The operation went well and I am almost back to being myself. I am just missing the fun rides on my scooter as the doc recons I can only ride it in about 5 weeks time (have been 3 week now).

The bike has almost no damage besides a bent gear lever. I was really surprised about this!

The fall happened on the last day of training and we were busy with the oval tracks. I was a bit windgat over taking Craig on his 650 and realized i was way to fast and all I can remember is the bike on my leg! I am very grateful that I have spend money on proper boots that saved my ankle!

I must also thank Oom Jan Staal for one of the best weekends and Johan for the lift back to JHB! I know I was not the best passenger!

I am not the happiest person. Visited the doctor Friday and I am still not allowed to get on the bike! How long does it take?

The main fracture has started to grow but still a long way to be at a point that I can ride. The doc said that he thinks in about 3 months I will be able yo go bos!

The upside is that it happened here, and not way in the bundu.

RR, it took me almost 2yrs to be strong enough to ride after shattering my Femus...take ur time, do your physio and keep doing what ever the doc says. There's a reason he's the doc and u r the patient...

Best of luck

Thanks guys! It's just bad seeing the bike in the garage and paying the monthly installment without being able to use it!

But will listen to the doc!
