Hello my Friends
Yesterday I was in a two vehicle accident with my Raider. This happened in Minnesota where it is currently in a salvage yard. I live in Wisconsin. I was taken by ambulance, treated and released and although I am hurt, I am very lucky as I was not wearing a helmet. I was thrown over the handlebars. I do not have much time right now and my heart is just not into this. Riding a bike should be relaxing but remember you can never RELAX. This happened so fast. The phone calls to your family are very hard to make. Keep riding my friends. RIDE SAFE

55Mike so sorry about your accident. The important thing for you and your family is that you are ok. The bike can be repaired or replaced although none of us would like to see our baby all scratched up things happen and happen fast. So rest up and let us know how things are going.

Mike,
I am so sorry to hear of you accident, I have been there myself and although it took some time I went back to riding. Hopefully you will heal quickly and be able to get back in the saddle should you choose to do so. Let us know if you need anything.
Take care

Sorry to hear about your accident, Mike. Glad to hear that you are OK - I took an 8 year hiatus from riding when a few friends of mine didn't make it home. Glad you're OK. There can be other bikes - don't worry.

Just be safe and get better.

Keep on the bright side, you can see the Sun!

Will you be able to fix or replace your bike?
Don't let it get you down.
Ride that horse again.

God bless,
Ken

Mike -

We're very sorry to hear about your accident. We are also extremely grateful that you are OK.

I have been there as well, and I understand how your heart isn't into it right now. Don't worry about that. Right now, take your time, heal yourself, get as much rest as you need. When you're ready, you're ready. I know what what you're saying about those calls - thank God you were able to make them. I remember sitting by the roadside that day in '05, calling my wife. I'm just glad that the police didn't have to make that call for me...

I shot you a PM, give me a call if you need anything...

Mike, first of all I want to say I'm also sorry, and thank god you are going to be OK. Being someone who also was involved in a crash myself back in the day, I can understand the frustration you are going through at this moment.

Take it easy for now, and I'm sure we will see you on the streets again. Tonight I'll say a prayer, and thank GOD for sparing 55mike.

It is a blessing to be spared. I had the unfortunate experience of looking at two mangled motorcylces this last Wednesday and a white sheet on the ground with the dead body of a 64 year old biker who was doing everything right that day. Had his helmet on, was following the rules of the road and still he was killed by a negligent driver of a car.
His friend was air lifted out. That man 68 died the following day.
Two bikers, not hurting anyone. A sunny day, no wind, what a nice day to go for a ride with your friend and POW you are hit by someone who just crossed into your lane suddenly.

Be ready to die. That's the bottom line. If you are not, give me a call or send me an email.

Be viginlant while riding. The other drivers don't care about you. It's all up to you to protect you through good choices, decisions and practice. The left is committed to Him who cares for you.

My best to all of you who ride this season.

Ken
