Post Back Again 
 
Gday again boys, i just thought id say hello once again and explain my disappearance from here..I was diagnosed with PTSD a a quite few years back from my time in the Navy and for a while now ive been in a bad spot withdrawing away from everything and everyone..After finally seeking help again im slowly coming back and finding my feet again..This last year hasnt been to good to me with me cos in amongst the depression i also wrote off my street glide in Dec by some fkn tool that decided to hit his brakes in front of me for no reason resulting me to wash out my front wheel and doing a big belly flop down the highway at 110kms..I broke my hand and a few fingers wrenched my bad knee and lost alot of skin cos i took my draggin jacket off 10 mins beforehand cos i was sweating like a bastard..He decided that he didnt want to hang around and he fkd off before anyone could get his plate.. April i had to have a new knee put in as i fkd it good and proper after the accident so that was more time off the bike and a hell of a lot of pain..So anyway here i am now writing this, i have a new bike being a 2012 Road King ( yes photos soon ) a new stronger knee and also getting my head together..Well there you have it, its been a trying time and all i can say is PLEASE, JUST ASK YOUR MATES IF EVERYTHINGS OK, you may never know that something is wrong before its too late and also you are no lesser a man if you ask for help.....thanks for looking..Dave..

Well done and welcome back Oldsalt. It's good to have you back and thanks for that excellent advice. Too many people try to go it alone and don't make it. As you said to admit you have a problem, talk about it and get help. The biggest step is that first step, asking for help.
So pleased you got back to riding as that can be great therapy.
Yep when you get the chance, photos please.
Cheers mate
