I haven't been on nor have I cared to get another bike since.

And I didn't have insurance. I was an independent contractor at the time and my bike was in my Dad's name.
I hate you, I hit a tree going 50 and exploded my knee. Despite a attempt I couldn't just walk it off. But one bad accident really does open your eyes.im guessing you spent a couple days in shock trauma that place sucks ass.

Yup. A day and a half. They injected me with a blue/purple dye to check for hemorrhages. That shit burns like hell!

Yeah, my childhood home is just outside in Mount Hope. The house stood about 1 km from the airport. In fact, they expropriated and bulldozed it down so that they could put the road in from the exit of Hamilton airport to Highway 6/Caledonia.

The company I work for might have bulldozed it! lol Oh that's bad... My best friend lives on Airport Rd. about 500m east of HWY 6, and I was in Grimsby on the "mountain" just before we moved out to the wild west.

First off, glad you're alright dude.

About the money....try to talk to the biller directly, as polite as you can possibly be. I don't know if you will be treated differently since you're Canadian, but sometimes you can work out some sort of a payback plan or even settle the bill for less than the full amount. Doesn't always work but it NEVER hurts to try.

Whatever you do, DON'T ignore it and let it go to a debt collector. I have had no personal experience with these people, but they are fucking ruthless. Avoid at all costs letting it go into collections.
