Hi John,

Sorry to hear about your accident.
Glad to know the car hit your saddle bag instead of your leg, that would have been much worse. Wish you a full recovery with no lingering ailments.

Ahhhh so that's what's up

Just checked in here for the first time since last week, and saw the explanation to flesh out your text.

What a huge bummer. Very glad to hear you are not in really bad shape.

Let the bike go dude. It's by far the most dangerous activity you have. People on the road just don't pay attention. Some guy was texting while driving a few weeks ago and ran into the back of my car. I don't think he even hit the brakes.

Will call you in a bit.

Thanks guys!

It got to the point where each time I put the key in the ignition I was wondering if this was the time.

Looks like my number finally came up!

I should heal up fine. I am done with bikes...

I need avionics!

I think you are making a wise move, CJ. I used to ride, too. It got to the point where I realized it was not a matter of IF, it was only a matter of WHEN it was gonna happen if I kept it up. If a cat gets 9 lives, I'm not sure how many we get, but I figured at some point I would use em' all up.

I got rear-ended a couple years ago when my son was with me, and it totaled my SUV. Smashed the car in front of me, too. I had nowhere to go and was caught in the middle. Boy, was I glad I was in a Ford Expedition and not on a bike. My rig was totaled but neither one of us had a scratch or got hurt at all. I wouldn't be here if I had been on my bike.

I think when we get these RV's finished, we'll have such big RV grins on our faces, riding will pale in comparison anyway. :)
