I work at a cabinet shop have for like 14 yrs. About ten years ago at work I had board kick out on me while on a saw and put my left hand into the saw blade. Which was a dato blade and turned my fingers tips on three fingers into hamburger. Lost first knuckle on ring finger and tips on pointer and middle. The next three months after was awful I lost almost all the muscle in my left hand. I consider my hands quite strong because I use them all day long. But it was almost complete mush by the time I was able to use my hand again. That next year I bought my first dirt bike when I was 22. It scared me to death at first because I couldn't hardly hang on to the grips for a long time. But I do give credit to dirt bikes for my speady recovery with my hand and built my muscle back up fast. The reason I am writing this is I was just curious about other riders who have lost tips or fingers. Do you have the grip back in your hands and do your hands have the stamina for long rides. Its been ten years this winter since I lost fingers tips. And I go ride almost every Friday ever since and my hands are quite strong. But when I ride for more than about 4-5 hrs my hand gets very fatigued and lazy and I kill my bike a lot because it just doesn't want to pull in clutch lever any more. So I always try to plan my rides accordingly to what my hand can handle. Just wondering if anyone else has any experience with this. And what they have done if anything to overcome this. Because it would be nice sometimes when I am out longer than that window to be able to push through it.
