Alright folks here is the story I have been telling some of you about. Back in July on the 24th that evening I went on a cool evening ride, it was about 100 degrees that day so it was too hot to ride during the day. It was a monday evening and I had just returned home from Maui, anxious to get on my BRAND NEW 06 ZX10R with just a little over 300 miles on it and take it for spin plus I needed to get through the break in period so it needed miles. I quickly suited up as always with full leathers, I decided to ride up to ACH a.k.a Angles crest Highway and then through La Canada and back down on the 210 freeway into pasadena. By the way thats where I live. I then figured that I am low on gas so would fill up but before I did I would just cruise through old town Pasadena and see what was going on downtown for a monday night. I reach the west end of Pasadena and from colorodo blvd I made a right up Pasadena ave which turns into Corson st and that street runs paralell to the 210 freeway. I was headed east back to Lake Ave to the 76 station. Its about 8:45pm and I am approaching the intersection of corson and walnut street, Corson st. bears to the right before the intersection and I could see that I had a green light to go through the inetersection so I was good to roll on. I could see a large 2 ton white truck slowing down for his red light so I knew he was stopping. I was going approx 40mph into the intersection, oh by the way this intersection is right next to the big parsons building, Anyway going about 40mph I am just about through the intersection and then BAMMM, Lights out for me. I can barely remember comming in and out of consciounus in the E.R. And the ambulance apparently I was comming in and out qouting lines from the movie Team America. I woke up the next day with doctors all around me, I dont remember a thing, I didnt know where I was, And I didnt know what had happened, And let me tell you I felt like SHIT! When I was coherient enough the doctors had told me that my right arm and shoulder was shattered and my nose and upper jaw was broken. They were worried about my pelvis they thought it sustained severel fracters. Two weeks I spent at Huntington Memorial Hospital, during that time I had reconstructive plastic surgery on my nose and upper jaw, The Orthepedic who was wacthing my arm said he could save it with a prosthetic joint and simple reconstruction. My pelvis turned out to be ok as with my organs. The brusing around my body was intense like something from a horror film. Just 5 min before I had the surgery for my arm the Orthepdeic said he had been studying the MRI'S and X rays and thought when he will openend me up that he might be able to pin it all back together, but he wasnt sure and said it was unlikely for my arm and shoulder were a mess. Amazingly enough 2 hours and 45 minutes later I came out with pins in my arm, He saved my arm! The Doctor said most likely greater than 70% it would not heal and that we would have to do the prosthetic joint anyway but I was so determind to get through this i said 'Doc youve done your part now ill do mine"! and that was to do what ever it took to heal my shoulder. Just to let you all know that I later found out that the guy who hit me had no insurance and was not a legal U.S. citizen. At the time of impact I went through his windsheild and out his passanger window. he hit me going about 35 to 40 mph, and when I thought he was stopping he didnt! He ran the red light but didnt know anybody was comming in the other direction all he could hear was my zx10r and boom he took me out. The Guy who hit me has no assets and lives in shithole aparmtent in panarama city, so I had no legal options. However I have done most of my recovery my self still yet to start physical therapy I have about 70% range of motion and 40% of my strenth and in time it will get better. I now have a brand new 07 zx10r and I have been taking it super slow and easy. So thats it for now folks I left out some details but Ill share more with you later. I will be uploading some pictures of my arm and the bike and my stay in the hospital. I am so glad to get back on the saddle and every one has said that I am so stupid to get back on a bike and I just tell them they have no idea how great it is to ride!!![8D] I know you will all agree!
