That’s a nightmare mate. Take it easy and heal properly. Look forward to 2024 👍

No wonder you have been in pain Rob 8O As much as you don't want to be strapped up, lets hope it does some good :eh:

Swap the throttle to the left hand side and run a thumb brake connected to the front calipers?

Got to be worth a try...

Very sorry to hear you're strapped up. Hopefully not for too long.
I know what it's like...

Crap to hear but always mention injuries. Especially hand/wrist. No one needs to be out of DIY action . Seriously though, scaphoid injury can be really serious. Glad it's not that.

On the bright side. It could have been much worse.
And you will be fine eventually. 🤕
