Default Summer in the terlit!!

That pretty much sums up this years contests.
On my way down to Bar-B-Qlossal to help Plowboy with his vending aspirations, a skool bus pulled out in front of me and ended my summer.
The bike is not totaled (again) I have multiple spinal fractures,( wearing C-collar for 6 weeks) broken nose, nasal cavitys, skull fracture, abrasions and bruises all over the place.
They had to do emergency surgery on my left leg to save it. I will be fine in time but will miss all your smiling faces for a while. Already left Todd hangin, I just canceled judging Marshalltown, I'm not sure yet about Waterloo or Mason City but should be ready to cook at Waucoma.
So keep your eyes open for us bikers and I'll see you later.

As they say, it's not IF you will crash your bike, but when and how hard.
I sold mine when I saw I guy on a shovelhead die in front of me in Atlanta traffic.

Glad you made it through, if not in one piece at least with them glued back together!

And I thought my summer was succccky. You got me beat by a long ways, get better soon.
I can only give credence in facts I believe factual. If those facts are wrong, and are proven as such by facts, I must only give those facts credence, if I believe them as factual.

Damn Ed sorry to hear. Glad to hear you are going to heal.

I try to follow most of the accidents and did not hear about yours. Did you know there was another school bus / motorcycle accident in Cedar Rapids on monday?

It's dumb enough for a driver to say they never saw the motorcycle after an accident. But for a school bus driver to say it is totally incompetent.

Get well soon, brother.
