Finally got a look at my @iconmotosports Statistic helmet. It appears that where my head hit the pavement fell under the 6.4% area. Either way thanx @iconmotosports for keeping my head intact! #ouch #lucky

Ok. Another Sporty, the one HD likes to deny ever building. The 1977 Confederate Edition. #politicallycorrect #realdeal #bummer #collectibletankdecals

Then #liamski brought me a monkey after my failed bathroom attempt that took over an hour! #sothankfulformyfamily #wishmyrightlegwasstronger

I am incredibly grateful right now. It's been a rough 10 days for me and although I get to learn how to walk again with my left leg, it could have been so much worse. Since my accident I have heard so many stories from people who have had much more devastating injuries or may not have made it through. It's made me realize how fortunate I am. I am so grateful for my wife @paola_polkadot. Believe me, she wasn't ready to have to deal with this. The kids @monkeyboy_punx @_presley_ and #liamski are nothing but full of energy, love and support. I am thankful to my close friends who have moved mountains to help me and to all those that have called, texted or contacted me. I'm humbled that I've had people I don't personally know sending me get well wishes and sharing their stories with me. I'm grateful I have a loving, comfortable home to recover in. I'm grateful that I will recover. I will never take all the amazing things in my life for granted ever again. #becarefuloutthere #family #watchyourback #thankyou #dontlikestairsatall

So many things in life we take for granted like being able to go from the bed to the couch. It took me 20 minutes to get up on crutches and then 10 min to start feeling normal after getting super dizzy #realhealingday1. #goingtostaypositive #tamale

Morning. There's where they pulled skin from for my skin graft over where they had to open up my legs to relieve swelling, ruining perfectly good tattoos. Want to send out a quick thank you to everyone out there who has been so supportive to me. It's so incredibly overwhelming to me. My wife @paola_polkadot will keep people more informed again. I'm completely grateful to everyone #thankyou #wanttogohome #thisisanitemare #needrealsleep #thankyoueveryone thank you @paola_polkadot fir being so strong for me

*This is @chopperdaves wife, @paola_polkadot reposting my last post as he's asked me to. Many of you know that he went down yesterday in an accident. If not, please go check out my last couple of posts on my page, as it's too much to go into here. He does not have his phone so he's asked me to repost this as these are his feelings as well. I will be updating on my page later this afternoon. **First off I want to say THANK YOU to EVERYONE who sent prayers, well wishes and good energy to @chopperdaves and our family today. Reading the comments and texts brought me to tears and I'm amazed at the outpouring of love from our friends, family, Instagram friends and the motorcycle community in general. I can't express in words how grateful we are for you all. Second, I apologize that due to bad reception at the hospital and phone battery issues that I was not able to reply to each and every call/text/comment we received, but please know every single one was appreciated. I want to especially thank @9half for the help with the bike, @hapaisprapa for being there when I had to run out, Sean Harvell for hauling ass back on his bike from his Vegas weekend trip to be w D and help me w the kids, @mach_mdfd for donating profits from their sales to D's medical fund, to @elpacmangringo for setting up the "gofundme" and for everyone who has reposted that and donated. *Im in tears again* UPDATE ON @chopperdaves He has recently come out of a five hour surgery. And aside from being in major pain and very uncomfortable he is doing well. He will be in the hospital till at least Sunday. We're holding it together and thanks again everyone, we are eternally grateful. ❤️❤️❤️** He is overwhelmed by the love and support as is our whole family.
