I did absolutely ZERO riding this summer, yes the big F-ing ZERO! Some 19 year old girl took the summer away from me when she pulled out in front of me on my Street Glide at 45mph. Broken pelvis and femur and 20 days in the hospital later I just started walking with a cane about a week ago. I am thankful for one thing, I’m alive. I buried a comrade a few days ago. She was coming home from work and was making a left turn and an off duty Deputy Sherriff ran the light and took her life. No she wasn't on a bike but in her Honda Accord. She was in the Air Force and was my supervisor when I first got into the reserves about 10 years ago. I worked with her continually in my govt contractor job. She was good people all the way around and I will miss her. I realized when I heard the news of her death how lucky I was in my accident. 20 days in the hospital sucks but my family still has me here and I will recover. Things like this puts life into respective.

    Sorry to hear of your accident - hope recovery goes well. Condolences for the loss of your friend. I have a 19 year old that has had 3 at fault accidents in 3 years. I lay awake at night worrying. When she is out and the phone rings I lose years off my life. Prayers for you and your friend.

    Wow, too bad all the way around. For now just concentrate on your recovery. Been there my friend. Was ran over by a car back in 1989, on foot and crushed both legs. Long recovery, but finally got there after a couple years. Keep in good spirits and don't give up on any of your plans or dreams. My condolences for the loss of your friend as well.
