Anyone had a major crash? Looking for fellow riders who can give me some advice. I'm looking to find out more about how riders got back on the bike, etc after having a major crash. How'd you deal with it mentally?... Physically getting back on seems to be the easy part. My mate had a major crash a few months ago and I can't seem to bring myself to get back on the bike. It took a good 5 years to move from cars to bikes and now I feel if I don't get back on soon I may never ride again.
