Sorry about your leg! Nice thing about the Wing is so many bike naps cause zero damage because of the decent crash/tip bars.

Good advice above! Take the time to heal properly so you do not end up worse later.

Vote one for year-round riding! Austone Darksider PVT (Passenger Vehicle Tire)

Most recent Wing: 128k+ on the 2000 GL1500 SE (Just totaled) due to being rear-ended...
Current ride (for now) 2015 Triumph Trophy SE

Previous wings: '78GL1000, 13k mile '77 GL1000 (resto at home, neat story!), '81 GL1100 Interstate.
Previous non-wings: CB360T, Suzuki GS550L, Yamaha 650 spcl (first bike!), Silverwing 500, Yamaha Spectre 1100, VFR700F, CB900 Custom.

Valentino Rossi was back on his Yamaha Moto GP racer about 3 weeks after a WERY broken leg , and his result was nr. 6 in that race i think .
Maybe call him for advise ? LOL

The winner is the man with most tools !

New X-rays today. The doctor said the healing appears to be going as well as possible. He expects I won't need crutches to walk (just the support boot) after another week. Come back in 4 weeks for another X-ray.

Spending more time on my wife's hobby than the wing.
