Oh, yeah, I guess I forgot to mention the wreck

I earned a little static at Portillo's last night for not passing this news along promptly. Some people here knew but I never actually confirmed it here, and I guess they were too polite to say anything. Sorry about that, but I got preoccupied.

Anyway, I sent a biker to the hospital in an accident two weeks ago Saturday (May 2). It wound up being a helicopter ride to the hospital, but for not much, just a busted collarbone and a cracked rib. The bike has a cracked subframe and broken footpeg, and a few other odds and ends missing; apparently still rideable, somewhat, but not really reliable.

I owe a few thousand in damages, I guess, between the bike and the various pieces of personal gear involved (leathers, helmet), which sucks, but oh well, that's life.

Anyway, I'm off of riding for a while, possibly the rest of the year depending on how things turn out, which is a bummer but meantime I should be able to make it out in the truck for some of the other regular events. (Anyone needs anything pickup-trucked around, let me know, not like I'll be able to do much else for a while.) Again, sorry for not mentioning it earlier.

Hey Andrew:

That Saturday at Putnam was pretty rough on a lot of folks. I'm glad you are feeling better and if you need any help with the bike let me know. I'm pretty much back to normal after my getoff earlier that day and have the bike ready to go for the BHF NESBA event the first weekend in June assuming my neurosurgeon clears me which I feel he will.

Take care, heal fast. I got the first of my insurance bills for three days at Indy Methodist and they are astounding! Thanks goodness for a decent plan.

Putnam Park. Somewhere in turn 7, I'm told, but I don't remember anything after turn 3 of the first lap until the medic was putting an IV in my arm.

Feeling sore. Doctor doesn't know when the collarbone will start healing and doesn't want to operate on it, which I respect to a point, but something better start happening with it soon.

I did not enjoy the flight: being strapped to a board with my neck immobilized, I couldn't enjoy the scenery; the price was outrageous; and they left my earplugs in until we were almost landed, which hurt (because of the pressure change).

BION, the leathers survived the crash just fine, best I can tell. They didn't survive the medics, though, who (justifiably) filleted them off me before transport. Anyway, yes, well worth it.

Thanks for all your well-wishes. Hope to see you all around, one way or another.

Update: Hi Jim! Glad to see you back up and around too, and yeah, I don't know what the deal is with all the crashes, but it can stop any time now. Glad to hear you'll probably be at BHF; good luck.

I's love my shears they making removing cloth so much easier. Start the cut and then just slide them through the rest like butter.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I was awake for my flight too. I haven't opened the bill yet. I don't want to know. Mine was a short smooth flight.

It's amazing how they just zip those leathers right off of you. I wished I was awake so I could have begged them not to do that. By as it turns out, there probably wasn't enought left of them any to be worth it.

I was so glad to hear you were released so soon. I was really concerned when I heard you got the valet service as well. Did you get the T-shirt too? I got a life-for-flight T-shirt. My cute red headed EMT stopped by to see me the next day and brought me the T-shirt. I think she was trying to pick me or Wink up.

Hope to see you out there soon and we'll swap stories.

Andrew, I rolled past the scene just after your incident, glad you are ok, it looked really darn bad from my point of view. Didn't see the accident but from what i saw i guessed a high side on the exit of turn 7. You were in the middle of the track just after the exit of the corner and your bike was a good 50 ft past that. Anyways, glad you are relatively ok, had me worried!

Geez Andrew, glad you're healing up. The way you wrote your first post made it sound like you hit a biker.

Get better soon, buddy. You gotta be able to carry a backpack for our fall trip.

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