Well it seems on a curving Mountain road
a Cager wanted his half in middle
and came into my lane and forced me into and over
a guard rail.
I got medivac'd by helio to Trauma and they fixed me up
Spent 10 days total in there dont remember 1st two
I got some nasty chest wounds( from guard rail)
and 3 new pins in my knee it will be 6-9 months rehab before
I am Riding again but looks like bike will be
in shape in about a month.
But I will be back in the wind!!!!

I hate these kind of posts xaxer. I hope you're up and riding as soon as you're able. Did the cager stick around and assume some responsibility? Hopefully you will walk away from this in better shape than you went into it. If you're back up in 6 mos then you only miss the hot vegas summer Good Luck!

I was wondering where you had been. Honestly I was hoping you were just in the wind, not banged up. Thoughts are with you and I hope the healing keeps continuing. Thanks for dropping in on us and letting us know what is up.
