    Hi ,
    Just thought I would introduce myself.Im in the process of rebuilding my life after a near fatal crash in August 2018.I broke 26 bones,14 ribs,spent 9 days in a coma and had a bleed on my brain-after 12 operations and a total so far of 56 hours surgery I'm slowly getting back to something approaching normality.Ive still got a way to go with at least another two operations on my right arm.I can ride (Short distances) thanks to Laura (named after my intensive care nurse )my newly acquired Speedmaster.I used to ride Hinkley nakeds,it was a Speed triple that almost killed me,but the riding position is now impossible for me.Hope to be using this forum for guidance on the very new to me world of cruiser ownership. Thanks and bye for now. 20191029_141340.jpg

    And I thought I had a rough year ! Glad you're still with us Harvey. I have a similar bike in my fleet. Her name is "Lola" after my granddaughter, born on the day I bought the bike. Mine is the America version. I think you'll love your Speedy. Be safe. ...J.D.

    Welcome, glad to hear you haven't lost the love. Speedmaster / America's are great bikes.

    I went the other way after my crash, I went from cruiser to big naked !!! :p

    Whichever way you go, just do it on 2 wheels:cool:
