Done for the season

I rented a stump grinder last week to clean up a couple old tree stumps on my property. While backing it off the trailer, the trailer tipped and rolled the machine on top of me. Fell hard on my right elbow and knocked my shoulder out of joint, tearing a couple tendons in the rotator cuff. I can't lift my right arm let alone manage a motorcycle.
Looks like probable surgery next week.
There goes our motorcycle ride to the Blue Ridge Parkway we planned on all year.
The good news is that I should be good for next spring.

2012 Yamaha V Star 1300T / Mustang Seat / Star Deluxe Fairing

Ouch I wish you a speedy recovery. Might not be all that bad just face it as it comes and roll with the punches.

that sucks. i could say look at the positive, but i don't see any here. i guess, at least nothing happened to your bike. maybe this will make you appreciate your blue ridge trip even more next year. i went last year on my 950 and it was awesome. best vacation i've ever had.

Crap, that SUX. Hope you heal up fast and well.

But hey there "Lefty", you got to admit, it certainly was nice of Bevo to tell you what you will be missing. So just imagine it, "it was awesome", AND, "it was the best vacation EVER!"

Hey Bevo, pass the salt, if you have any left.

Sorry DD.

Try to find a bright side: like maybe God pulled you off the road cuz He knew you'd be right where a 60 vehicle pile-up is fixing to happen.

Anyway, heal fast.....

the sweet is never as sweet without the bitter.

once you're healed up and ready for your trip next year, you'll enjoy it even more because of this
