just found this. Lock is one of the longest standing ebikers around. It's absolutely horrible to hear he's been injured. Such a great guy. He'll be in my thoughts. It could be any one of us...

Wow I just found this thread. Kinda ironic how there is so much fear about ebikes and speed etc. When all it took for a bad injury was some stairs. Hope you get better man.

Greetings everyone, bit of an update. I saw Lock and his daughters in the hospital this afternoon. Recovery from this head trauma will be slow but it appears that he will have a very good result. Right now Lock has only a feeding tube remaining to be gotten rid of and once that is done he'll be able to communicate better. There are numerous cards and pictures on the wall and I know he'll really appreciate the card from here.
I showed his the daughter the 'Horses of Iron' thread on this site and she applied for a profile while I was there.

I've been a lurker here for about a year and if anyone wants any more info please pm me.

This is great news! Thanks for the updates, I'm really pleased to hear Lock's on the mend and likely to make a full recovery. He had a lot of us here pretty worried for a while, there.

Best wishes from across the Atlantic.
Please ask questions on the forum, rather than by PM, as it helps others and you'll get a better range of answers.

Thanks a ton for the update Fast Eddie. Really glad to hear he's got a good prognosis. No doubt he'll soon be clamoring for a laptop so he can get back to the sphere.

Now that we know you will read this yourself Lock, Best wishes and get well soon!

Thanks everyone, i show dad his cards and the threads, he looks at them intently but just not sure if he's reading them. We know he can see and recognizes people so im hoping he can read too! If not its just a matter of time. As soon as he's able to we'll have him online!
