my right wrist is messed up kind of, had a motorbike accident back in February and landed on my right arm/leg, screwed up right wrist, still use it fine and can ride normal bikes but would be a very good excuse to have a recumbent trike ;)

gibbleking are you claiming that riding a recumbent trike is much more fun than crashing cars and killing prostitutes on grand theft auto ?

I sliced through tendons and had th recon op and all the permanent stitches came to the surface, doc said that's to be expected :roll: what a load crap it failed completely he knew it but wouldn't admit it, I went through 6 weeks of pain and plaster for damn all grr!! :roll:

I can use it but only my thumb and second finger work and if I pick up anything my wrist gives in. bet if I paid they'd have done a better job, not wanting to totally dish the NHS :D

Although I have had many a shitty time with the NHS, they gave me the best midwife in the world, and I mean in the world!!!! and the best two GP's, they have also given me the worst, but for the first three and it's free I cannot, on the whole, dish them.,

But gibbleking does have the sort of recumbent I want.
