Got hit by a cab

Hello all. I got hit by a cab on 294 south by O'hare yesterday on my 600rr. I was taken to Lutheran General Hospital via ambulance. My bike is totalled and I'm posting from the hospital. They're gonna send me home today, and it looks like I'm gonna have surgery on my left shoulder next week . Poor Jess saw the whole thing. Wear your gear. I got some roadrash on my legs above the boot line and on my lower back where my jacket rode up. I never hit my head. The cabbie ran and the state troopers are looking for him. Some good samaritans got his plate. I LOVE MORPHINE.

Oh shit, that sucks. I'm glad you're ok, though. I really hope they find that piece of sh*t. What a f*cking coward running like that.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
