Thanks guys.  Just saw this thread now.

The stupid thing is that I wasn't doing anything forceful.  Client came to collect his bike, a Husky TE510.  Not even a heavy bike.  While maneuvering it in the garage I just needed to swing the arse end around by about 100mm,  So grabbed the tail end and pulled.  I have a tiles floor so they slide easily. 

Next thing, POP!  I still thought Geez, that felt weird!  Next thing I was man down.

Surgery last Friday afternoon, so now the healing starts.  Feel like ˝ a Michelin man at the moment.
I came here to drink milk and kick arse!  And i've just finished my milk.

Just heard from someone who went to pick up his bike, that Jughead was moving bikes around his workshop when his bicep tendon snapped and the muscle suddenly contracted like a tennis ball. Sounds bloody painful!  :o

Needed surgery to re-attach and the recovery process is going to be lengthy, a matter of months. I'm heading his way tomorrow to help pick up someone else's bike so I'll get the full story.

Meanwhile, hope your recovery is quick and painless as possible, Guy.  :deal:

I've had exactly the same happen to both mine and yeah it's painful.

I missed the boat on my first one, and left it too long.  The window for the operation repair is 14- 20 days.  I waited 5 weeks and there was little they could do. 

When the second one went, I reacted immediately and the op was done within a week.  I'm back to full strength there but my range of movement (rotational) is slightly limited.

 :imaposer:

Funny thing is, I didn't feel the pain initially.  I still moved the bike to where I wanted it, put the sidestand out, leaned the bike over and stepped away from it.  That's when I went man down.

I'm still pissed at how ridiculously easily it happened.  If I was doing something particularly strenuous I could understand it.  But I was just sliding, not even lifting, the arse end of a 100kg bike.  No big deal.  :BangHead: :BangHead:

And here's me dragging the arse end of my 160kg bike around (and not on smooth tiled floor) if I can't push it out the garage :o

I met a biker who tore both his tendons, one catching his AT750 that was falling over, and the other carrying a heavy object in an unsafe manner.

Get well soon! Hope it heals quickly.

That happened to me in 2012 - picking up a foxterrier that was built like a watermelon.

Snap.

My theory is it gradually detaches over time due to old injury or overexertion till one day - it just goes.

The painful part was to get the arm mobile again - arm straightened and able to lift things again. The open cast they made me wear was the biggest irritation. I started driving and working before the doctor ordered due to a project I was on - I just had to be there as lead architect.

Take it slow and make sure you visit the physio for the rehab exercises and DO THEM. I stopped after some months and my left arm is significanlty weaker than what it should be presently. Exercise quickly fixes that though.

Strongs with the recovery.
