April 21st pretty much ended me, and 28 years out on 2. I had just started at
another shop 3 weeks before. After a evening out with a few buddies, showin
off my new riding gear I had just gotten 4 days before. It has the shoulder-
 elbow and back armor, my old gear was about 15 years old, and yes, still cant
find me another Rebel vest. (not that it matters now)

SSSSOOOO, on my way home, I had someone turn left right into/ in front of me.
Not really sure myself, I dont remember much more than leaving the restaraunt,
and friends house and first 6 miles on my way home. Hit me so hard on the rh
side of the bike it shattered my leg, and sending bone thru my upper leg,
snapped my wrist, hand was on the 45 degree angle, back, neck and head
injures now. The armor somewhat did its job, no broken elbow, shoulder or other
internal injuries. The back protector didnt do no good in this case, its function is if
your rolling/ skidding across pavement.

 The bike, just as bad, the rh mirrors and side marker light- gone, broke off the front
master cylinder (brake) cracked the clutch cover in 3, as well as the lower engine
casing. The front forks where shoved into the engine as well. The only thing that was
able to be salvaged with the wheels/tires. It even cracked the tail light somehow.

Now its either, walker/ crutches or a wheelchair. Not sure if i`ll walk again, or even in a
year yet. Good thing I did my marathon vacation/ visiting last year. Looks like i`m now
the poster child for motorcycle awareness????

Got a loooong way to go, 9 surgeries in a month time, possibly 3 more within a year. Hate to put it this way, but there is no other way.
Found out who my REAL friends are. Many are ones from down yonder, and only 60% local.
And I was always one to throw a hand in when asked. SHAME ON ME one distant one, Maumee Oh, made the 1hr 20 ride to
pop on by for 3 hrs, just as I was coming from recovery, and back to my room in ICU. I was so drugged up and out of it
I barely remember the visit, but got a few pics.

use that just for condiments, small things like gatorade/tea/lunchmeat/bread and such.

As for pics, my trip last year, got... well had over 300 pics along the way. US23, started
in Portsmouth Ohio on down to Kingsport Tn, Tail of the dragon, tree of shame, Stone
mtn Ga, Lake worth area, Eastern edge of the everglades, FT.Meyers and Bradenton,
ran outta time for a venture across the sunshine skyway tho. Did I wear`ya out there?
I got back home, and the phone puked out AAGGHHH!!!!!

 You did not wear me out. It sounds like, you had a great vacation.

I am so glad, that you are getting disability and some state aid.  

If you are at Facebook, you are welcome to send me a friends invite.
