Hey ASkickerr,

I hope to someday be able to post a success story myself but for the time being I don't feel I've "earned" the right to do so as I don't think I've beaten AS just yet. I do however want to thank you for sharing your particular story since the first part mirrors mine almost exactly. You see, I too crashed my bike (mine was a sports bike) 12 years ago leading to the same late diagnosis due to the same reasons. AS following an injury seems to be a common theme here. Perhaps it somehow triggers the disease? For us this is purely academic at this point...

Thanks again for sharing!
