    Aye you've got yourself a proper 'Tyler Hamilton' - sorry to hear, Buggi, take it easy (and enjoy the medication) and you'll be up and back on the (sounds pretty undamaged) bike in no time.

    I only type with one finger (and my tongue hanging out for concentration), so you're still up on 2 armed me!

    Hope the bike is OK.

    And you, of course! ;)

    Sorry to hear of your accident! A lot of people 'bonk' after 70-odd miles, but you have to go and break your collar bone! Now you're a proper cyclist!

    It's a painfull break, but you should be up and riding within 3-4 weeks hopefully!
    Getting dressed will be fun; and take time.
    Speedy recovery, buggi!

    Arrrhh Buggs - done mine once too ! - yuh mean yuh tried to emulate superman/superwoman :ohmy: try crying to yourself for a bit then the determination sets in ! ;)

    Really feel for ya.

    You'll be sorted proper in about a month - 6 weeks ! - don't push it: let the body heal itself; have a nice rest.

    All the best ! :biggrin:

    When I broke mine in my teens I knew I'd done it as I could feel the 2 bits of bone rubbing together. When I told the doc in casualty he says "Who's the doctor here, I'll be the judge of that" and then pulled my t-shirt over my head.

    Me: "OWWW! You f***ing idiot!!"

    oh no buggi! :ohmy:
    get well soon. :biggrin:

    just enjoy getting off your tits on morphine for now. ;)
  14. Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery Buggi - don't shoulder all the blame for the crash - hold your hands up yes, but...

    Also sorry to hear that your bike is being examined for crack - is that why you crashed it?

    Enough already!
    Well get soon.
