One more update. Still doing well and improving. Since I got my new leg several months ago , I can walk more close to normal. Many donít notice I have a prosthetic leg unless Iím wearing shorts.

I took some physical therapy in order to learn to jog and run. Running is somewhat awkward. But I can run away from danger if need be. But I can jog pretty good. At least until I run out of breath. 😂. I still havenít gotten another Scooter. But thatís mainly because my FAMILY is still petrified. Life is good. God is even greater.

Hey Darryl ,
I'm relatively new here. I just went back and read the first post (still catching up on all the posts).
Good thing about scooters is you could ride again should you choose. But I understand how things can change your feelings.
I've not had as bad an accident, but the few I had didn't bother me mentally.
BUT, as a teen, I watched my baby sister fall from a rope swing I had placed in a tree. Just a busted lip for her, but watching my baby sister fall
scared me so bad that after that day I have trouble standing on a kitchen step stool. Sounds silly, but things affect us each differently.
Even if you recovered enough to ride again, I can sympathize with the family that has become afraid(overly concerned?) for you.
I don't think my fear is justified....but it is still there.
I'm glad you are here to respond and glad you keep the forum up to date with your positive progress.
Here's wishing that the choices you make are the best for you and your loved ones.

Great to hear that you are doing well in your recovery. Would moving to a 3-wheeled trike, such as the Can Am Spyder, alleviate any of your familyís reticent for your getting back on a motorcycle? The SpyderLovers forum has a discussion thread where differently-enabled riders can get support and swap stories of how they have modified their trike to carry their wheel chair, crutches, or change the foot brake to a hand brake, etc. I used this group to help me decide on purchasing a trike so that my blind wife could ride with me. Whatever your choice, 2 - 3- or 4-wheel, enjoy your life.

Yes, fear both justified and irrational can affect us and our loved ones for years to come. Iím still undecided as to my future riding plans. My lack of funds makes the decision easy. Lol. But just knowing that I can CHOOSE to ride again if I want to bring me Great satisfaction.

Truth be told, sometimes I do stuff just to make my big brother sweat. Nothing truly dangerous. But it may be something as simple as climbing a ladder or grabbing an object that he thinks Iím too feeble to carry. I think itís the pesky little brother trait that never goes away. 😂😂😂

Hope everyone is doing well. I havenít given an update in a LONG time. But Iím still doing well. IíM able to do EVERYTHING I NEED to do and MOST of what I WANT to do. And although i still havenít been on a scooter since my accident, I finally got on a BICYCLE and rode a bit. Good to know that even with the prosthetic leg, I can keep my balance. Sooo... thatís a plus.
