    Bonking ... not feelin' well Healing Words for the knob

    So, on the way home from WM I got a phone call from the knob. He mumbled something about getting into a head-on collision. RCC and I whipped around and rushed back to the scene. It wasn't good.

    Anyway, he seemed OK so we loaded his bike and rack because it was obvious that the car was not going to make it out of the wrecking yard. We made sure phone calls were made and that his wife and emergency services were on the way...again, he seemed OK. I just got off of the phone and he IS in the hospital with multiple fractures. Looking at a few months for recovery. I say he's lucky. The crash scene could have told a much different story.

    Heal soon, buddy

    Bummer on the news - but glad to hear that you are alive! Get well, enjoy the downtime with fermented beverages, and come back burning big rubber when your body says so. You tested your luck and won - not many others can say that in the similar circumstances. Don't be disappointed in your situation- be happy in the final result. We are all damn glad you survived this.

    You have no idea how hard it is to pour a beer with just one hand.

    Yes, I declined the good pills.

    Let's hope you are surprised and you find yourself riding much sooner than expected.

    Sorry you have to go through this.

    Thoughts are with you, bud.
