I can't tell you what happened, I have absoloutly no recollection of what transpired right before it did. Where my knowledge of it picks up, I was being loaded into the ambulance.

It is very unsettling, and quite disturbing to me that there is this gap in my day, that I have no rememberance of. What I do have is one hell of a headache, a very sore neck, and I seem to have re-agrivated both the old back and hip injuries. My upper body is sore and stiff as well, and I have a bloody mat of hair on the back of my head. When I lay down the room spins, on just about every axis.

Did I mention the headache?

What I can tell you is what my customers saw: Me falling out of the back of my truck, 4 feet to the pavement below, and landing on my shoulders and head.

I remember getting there, and some of the unloading, but it's all hazy to some extent.

I hate Mondays.

No riding for the week. Tomorrow off, light duty for the rest of the week.

Had the kid pick up the bike at work and bring it home.

Crap

So it was a black out?



My old boss told me his 'black out' story: He used to get up early Sunday mornings to drive his corvette fast on the highway, well over 100 mph. One morning he woke up in the car, wrecked. He had no memory of getting there, he was just thankful he woke up.

Nope, I just fell out of the truck and knocked myself clean out. Lost balance I guess. Bridge truck between the old lease and the new 2012 truck I pick up in november. Just not used to the parameters of the back edge on this one.

Damn Dude!

We cannot afford to lose too many riders!

Take care of yourself! We need guys who ride responsibly to keep our reputations clean.

Unlike the 20 something Kid I saw passing everybody in a turn lane today!

Ouch, I feel your pain...get well soon and be glad it ain't worse! I am sure though that it is plenty bad enough
Hoping you heal fast!



Reminds me of a few years ago when I slipped and fell off the back of a straight freight truck I was loading late one foggy icy night. Fell the 4 feet to the concrete and landed directly on my left shoulder, completely severing the supraspinatus tendon (the top one). $20,000 worth of MRI's and surgery later my shoulder still hurts, but I can use my arm well enough to ride my motorcycle, so it is all good.

ATGATT.



Sorry, just had to throw that in.

I thought you were describing a bike accident too, and when you described the 'bloody mat of hair on the back of my head' i jumped to thinking it was a bike accident without a helmet...



Heal. Then ride. And maybe keep your helmet on for a few days.

Get well, drink fluids. I tend to not drink enough and I think I get partially dehydrated and I get these very minor dizzy spells. I drive a concrete mixer and I have to climb up a ladder in the back plus I have to be constantly in and out of the cab. I have to force myself to drink more often, problem is that at my age it also wants to be relieved more often.

Another week off and no driving. Which is a good thing considering the drugs they've given me. I've never been a fan of narcotics,Not that I'me a tea totaler or anything, I just don't like not being in full control of my mental status........

Cut down and wean yourself off those heavy duty pain killers as fast as you can and switch to a couple of Advil or aspirin as needed for pain. Doctors love to over prescribe. I know too many people who have become dependent on the pain killers and have had life changing consequences as a result. Keep us posted on your recovery, we are all wishing you a speedy and complete recovery.

Please use caution if you do this. Yes, some doctors over-prescribe, but believe it or not there are many who know what they're doing.
