I'm telling ya man; never offer the info your a motorcyclists to anyone anywhere (especially a boss at work.*) It can save you a lot of grief if professionals your talking to don't know your away from work hobbies.

Believe me; I've faced discrimination from numerous sources many times in a half-century of riding. I don't tell anymore unless asked...

Get well soon!!!


* horror story I'll tell another time...

Alan/Nic/Carrie - Did you guys take out the metal plate and screws later?

I am in the same situation with a stupid crash on my 150F. 2 weeks into it and Kaiser wasn't willing to do a surgery until I got it escalated and visited a surgeon who suggested I should ASAP. They told me recovery time is 3 weeks though and I shouldn't bother about taking the plates off.

I just got my plate out a few weeks ago. My ortho told me from the get-go that she would recommend getting it out after a year. I'm glad I did - the plate was absolute magic for healing, but once the bone was healed, the plate was just uncomfortable. It rubbed my skin in a bad way, and even seatbelts and bra straps were annoying.

The take-it-out surgery was the easiest surgery ever. They put in a good nerve block so I would have a very light general, and I was up and walking a half hour afterwards. She partially re-opened the old incision, so I'll only have one scar, and it healed nicely.

Effing Kaiser. "Take an aspirin, you'll feel better."

Practicing backing it in a railyard next to my home in t-shirt and shorts. 4 broken ribs and collar bone split in 3. Nice lesson learnt
