This is what I'm dealing with right now. I've had 3 injuries in the last 4 years. First was four ribs, shattered shoulder blade and broken collarbone. It wasn't the pain but the 7 months it took me to heal. (Collarbone wouldn't heal and had to get a plate). Second was a simple broken ankle. Still took a longer time to heal. I'm not very good at growing bone. Now it's a Tibial plateau fracture. Looks like I'm going to be off work for 7 months.
I love riding bikes of all kinds. I really enjoyed my Street Triple. I never knew how much fun it was to carve a perfect turn, leaned over so far I thought my knee was close to touching. And I live in an area that has hundreds of miles of good roads with great turns.
My problem is I don't heal very well since turning 50. Is it worth the risk of another wreck with two to six months off work. I'm sure my employer isn't real happy with me either.
Too old to ride! NO! Worth the recovery time? I don't know. I still have till May before I can go back to work so I have a long time to think about it.
Did I mention I loved that Street Triple.
