I did the same thing you did, well not quite, I bought a brand new 750 Honda Shadow a couple of years ago....and I'm riding it to work every day, and this one day I went to the store on my lunch for a chocolate bar (death by chocolate) any way when I came back to work I'm on my bike going backwards to hit the curb with my back tire....I hit it before I expected too and it startled me and the bike started to fall to the left....which I had thought to push the kick stand down.....but being a new bike I did not want it to fall.....well I'm not very big and the bike is heavy so it fell and my leg was under it.....I could not get the bike off me and so I'm yelling for help and thank god a few guys from work came outside and one of them was big enough to pick up the bike. This was in August 2002 and I had an operation on my ankle.....to badly crushed to put in a plate so I had 10 screws put in....lived through the awful first 3 months of trying to get around the house and ect. Came back to work 4 months later....I have a desk job.....a year later.....I was still limping....went back to hospital got the screws out.....hoping I would solve the limp....it didn't.....I still limp and I have not rode my bike since.....my left foot does not move up and down.....so I cannot move the gears. Anyway that's my story....and I'm wondering if anyone else has had such a lasting effect on their bodies by one stupid fall.
