    Best wishes for a quick recovery.
    I don’t blame your wife for not wanting to get on one again, but sorry that you are having to give up part of your lifestyle.

    I read that as "sell the wife, keep the bike" and thought "there's a sensible man" until I re-read it!
    Get well soon, so easily done; nasty stuff gravel as I know from painful two wheel experience!

    Get well soon. Your experience perfectly illustrates why I gave up two wheels, I kept falling off! Never at more than 25 mph either.

    Get well soon both of you. I would highly recommend that you take some time before you make a decision on whether or not to give up biking. Give yourselves time to heal then make a decision.

    Thanks for all comments now 5 weeks after crash and getting better be glad to get back to doing things at home as the hardest thing was having workmen putting patio down and not being able to help as I was going to do.
