    Disaster struck…..CT total loss, including me…

    Well, my CT is gone…..on the 5th of May I had an accident which rendered my CT total loss and me along in the process….
    Can’t remember all of it, but I remember I was checking on a car next to me fiddling around a bit, being nervous and looking like to change lanes right where I was, when traffic suddenly came at a stop and boom…..think I was doing around 50 mph.
    Hospitalized since, broke my RH wrist, RH collar bone, several ribs right and left and damaged (crack in it now) my LH hip…..
    Had surgery on wrist and collarbone, some metal was needed to fix them, can not stand on my LH leg which I’m also not allowed to upcoming time, so confined to bed and chair for now…
    No idea when I will be able to ride again, but this year most likely not.
    Also no idea if a CT will come back, heavy bike and with the hip healed eventually no idea if I can move it around.
    Safe riding all of you, stay safe.

    All the best Marvin, so sorry to read that. Keep your spirits up, and give it time. You are alive that's all that matters.
    Mid Feb I thought I would never ride again, after 10d in coma with c19, 10kg of mostly muscles gone, and feeling 80y old and totally dependent on others.
    Time does the rest. When my mood improved the rest went quickly, and i am today back to 85% where i was in Jan. I wish you the same! Cheers
