Post I am still here

Whatís up ladies, I know itís been a minute, I am still HERE. Havenít been doing many Bear Mt rides the last
Few years. The weather the last few springs has been so unpredictable, we basically decide the night before
and hit it. Warm up for track season.

NEWSFLASH....... Ernie and I were involved in a head on Car collision coming from NYST 6/10/18. Long story short,
I got fucked up, broken right hip and other injuries. My season is over. I will of course be back with a vengeance
next season. Hope to squeeze in a few Bear Mt rides to shake the rust off before track season!!! I do miss the
Sunday rides, we always had fun!!!

Re: I am still here

That's bad news man. Glad you are alright. Not too many people get to talk about their head on collisions.

What happened?

Post Re: I am still here

Thanks guys, the Dr said 3 month heal time. Will have the 1st appointment in early July. The lawyer
Wants me to stay off the bike until the case is settled. Fuck that I will be riding next season, it will be
our secret LOL.

RICH, I want to personally thank the Evolve coach who stopped and gave me a blanket, I was drenched with
cold water from the cooler. It took them over 30 minutes to cut me out with the jaws of life.

Post Re: I am still here

Whatís up crew, what a difference a month makes. At the beginning of August I was moving my right leg
With my hands, no strength in it. After doing physical therapy twice a week for a month, at the end of August,
I can stand and get around on one crutch. . I have come a long way, but still have a long way to go.

I can get on the bike, move it side to side and roll it back and forth. Part of my PT, LOL. I canít get into a full
tuck with the right foot on the pegs. Maybe by the end of September, I will be able.


Stay tuned.......

Re: I am still here

UPDATE......whatís up peeps. No more cane, I ditched in back in Oct. I am still doing PT twice a week, we are working on the slight limp that I have. Hitting the gym 3 to 4 times a week to help with the PT and to get ready for the 2019 Riding season.

NEWSFLASH........ I have ridden the 600 a few times to make sure I am able to ride again before I spent any doe on mods or a new trailer. I picked up a 2018 Kawaski Ninja 400 non ABS in blue. I rode that a few times and I never knew 45 HP could be such fun!!! Looking forward to the 2019 RIDING SEASON.........

PS..... Progressive sucks nuts.

Thumbs up Re: I am still here

Update.......... I started the 2019 season off on a good note, I did a track weekend in Florida in the beginning of February!!! I did use my new 400, the more upright riding position did help and I did have a blast!!! I was sore as hell from riding for 2 days. I am still doing PT twice a week which will help the hip and right knee. I am looking forward to more RIDING in 2019!


PS...how you doing OG, another granddaughter has been added to the mix! The Diaper service is in FULL EFFECT, #3!
