Well it happened - January 12, 2007, 04:08 PM

You can now put me in the category of bikers that have crashed. I won't be able to give you many details due to the fact I hit my head so hard on the pavement I don't remember the crash at all. What I can tell you, it happened on Sat the 6th, that wonderful 70 degree January day. I had gone out riding with a few friends in the morning in western VA. We broke for lunch and on the way back some of us split off to finish the ride while the rest got on 66 to head back to NoVA.

I was with some fairly quick riders, but I wasn't pushing it to keep up with them because I knew they would wait for me at the next stop sign. I was coming around a nice right hander and that's the last I remember before standing around with Craig and Andrew. The bike was on it's kick stand on the side of the road and the two of them were talking to me as if it were any other day just enjoying the weather.

I had no memory of the wreck, my friends coming back for me, the other biker who had stopped to check on me, Liam going back to get his truck for me and me bike, none of it.

A Loudon county sheriff showed up and checked on us. Thankfully he didn't write anything up, but he did ask if I/we needed anything from "them".

Liam showed up with his truck, and they got my bike loaded up. On the way to the hospital I started to make calls to see if anyone wanted my Caps tickets for the night, but there was no-one who could make it. At the ER they confirmed what was plainly obvious, I broke my right collar bone.

The bike itself isn't in that bad of shape. Upper, fairing stay, and Windscreen are all that need replacing. The right side rearset is a lil bent but not that bad.

Thanks to Liam, Craig, and Andrew for all their help, and RJ for showing up at the ER.

Ouch. At least you can talk about not remembering instead of that nice right hander being your last glimspe of life.

This was your first wreck? How many years riding?

Riding back to look for you really twisted up my gut. I'm glad you're OK, though.

Whisper, I have that shield for you.

Yes, believe me I know just how lucky I was.

1st wreck on two wheels.

Dirt bikes most of my life, street bike just about a year.

scared the living shit out of me (so i went and took a crap) when i heard that you went down and was in the ER. I'm glad the injuries weren't that bad and i'm sorry you don't remember anything.

now get those parts in so we can fix your bike (not sure all of what you need). I'm hoping all three of the roomates can ride at some point in the spring!
