I bought a new bike while I was still on crutches. I had a handicapped placard for a month too... so I could park my bike in handicapped spots .

I ride even more now than I did before the crash (it was in 2001).
Damn...I think it would be hard to get back on a bike after that.

What was the cause of the accident?
