Glad you're moving along in the healing process.  Second guessing your accident doesn't help you as much as all that.  Once it's happened that's it!  Also remember that if the lady didn't pull out in front of you for no good reason none of it would have happened FOR SURE!

This riding season is shot for you due to the injuries.  That give you quite a while to decide what to do about the bike and what you'll ride after this.  It's my experience that nothing teaches panic stopping except real life panic stopping.  It's just what you said.  That the reactions needed are different then the ones we spent so much to learn for cars.  Our hobby is very dangerous and especially in the spring, when we've had a hiatus from riding and the car drivers have had a hiatus from seeing M/Cs on the road.
