Let's hope so, just had another friend hang it up, he did break his L2 and 9 ribs though so there is that. Either way, we all wish him the best and have our fingers crossed

Twistedsocal13 When I wrecked and was trapped in that damn bed 24/7 I swear I had as close to withdrawals as is possible from not being able to ride. I would get stupid irritated whenever I heard one ride by and it was way depressing. Seriously never felt so miserable in my adult life. I needed my speed fix so I found FPV. It's a whole hell of a lot cheaper than anything bike related and doesn't require much in the way of physical effort but it can be quite the rush once you get past crashing and or losing your quads. Check out YouTube, look up Mr steel or LeDrib, that should give you a rough idea of what I am talking about. A good starter would be an Emax hawk 5 or if you want to start indoors a tinyhawk since they don't break. X9d+ Tx and fatshark HD0 or HD3 goggles with rapid fire modual. it will set you back about a grand, need charger and batteries etc but it got me through when I couldn't ride.

DDP Yoga

I literally registered after I read this thread to respond. You've got to try DDP Yoga. Check out what it did for this veteran:
. I don't think you have to give up your favorite hobby. With some hard work and determination, I think you can overcome your physical issues.

There are so many examples of folks that have been through what you're describing and have been able to rehabilitate over time. That's not to say that it's easy, but it's definitely possible. We're often times more resilient than we know, and it's usually our minds that prevent us from taking the steps necessary to fix our bodies.

Let your love and passion for riding guide and motivate you! Be an inspiration to everyone else and lets see you back on two wheels!

JUICEBOX That sucks brother but we all eventually have to face the fact that life isnt going to let us keep doing what we like, one door closed another on opens, shit you never thought about doing to keep busy will most likely be what you end up liking to do, I recently started making rings out of coins, i dont wear jewelry but it's fun to make. Started doing it over watching a YouTube video.

Get one of them slingshots. You sit in them like a car and supposed to feel like your riding a motorcycle. I see a lot of older folks riding around in them. There's a lot of mods to be done on them as well if you are so inclined. I saw one with a turbo and nitro at the track near me. Guy drag races it.

Until I get a more relaxed ride I did start hunting. I bought a 7mm mag hunting rifle and took 2 antelope, a deer, and and an elk these last 4 months. Plenty of food for the family now! Lol. I watched youtube videos of how to butcher them and have my freezer full of steaks, roasts, ground meat and sausage. Also bought a 12 gauge shotgun and did some waterfowl hunting. Found that to be harder than hunting big game. That said I did manage a few ducks and a couple geese.

It's pretty relaxing being out in nature and a big rush of adrenaline when you get your game. It also feels great being able to put food on the table and its not full of hormones or mistreated.
