    CROSSTOURER INJURIES

    Reading a recent post today, (new member-centre stand = bad back), Thought I'd start the ball rolling with my injury, (time on my hands you see), early March putting the CT on it's centre stand I snapped the Achilles tendon in my right ankle, I've been only able to hop on one leg with a walking frame ever since in a knee to ankle cast and am looking at at least another month before starting rehab, it may end up as 6-9 months before I get on a bike again .
    Any other unusual injuries/mishaps out there in CT land ?  :019:

    OMG mondeoman, that’s what I call real bad luck. Here’s to a quick recovery.  :028:
    My only CT related injury was to my jaw when it dropped to the floor at being given the bill for its 16k service.  :012:

    It will be a long road with that injury, but get healed up.

    Not sure what you were doing, but I find it very easy to get on the center stand. Center of foot on the stand and stand on it while lifting with the grab bar.

    Hello Mondeoman,

    Like you I hurt achilles heel by putting my bike on its central support. Fortunately for me my achilles horse has suffered a tear and did not break like you. But after 3 months I still feel pain in the morning when I wake up and I dare not use my right leg to put my crosstourer on its central support.

    Good recovery

    Thanks for the messages guys,  :028:   Grabcon, thats exactly what I was doing, middle of foot, grab handle, heave and SNAP  :087: It snaps with a sound like a rifle shot. Consultant doctor says all your weight on middle or toe end of foot and excess pressure by also heaving big weights, (CT) will do it,  as I found out !!,  he sees many Achilles injuries caused by similar excess pressures .

    PS. another  nightmare for me is that I have to inject myself every day in the stomach area to help prevent blood clots forming and I HATE needles  :003:

    Bloody hell mondeaman, sounds horrible. Hope you’re sorted soon.

    I pull up on the pillion foot peg hanger when getting the bike onto the centrestand, find that a little easier.

    Injuries??? Frost bite on fingers when relying on the standard heated grips is about it.

    ( I’m still in the service plan at the mo Dave  :038:)
