Stogie...glad you survived and should make a pretty good recovery.

You could have made up some really good story about how it happened though.

I don't know why or how it happened.... was on an exit ramp and my tires wouldn't grip the pavement...... I took the curve like normal, but my bike kept floating to the outside.... I was leaning so hard my exhaust & saddlebags were dragging.... but ended up running out of road.... so when the pavement ran out I straightened out the bike & tried keep in on the gravel & ride it out, but the slope wouldn't let me & pulled me into the soft grass & mud..... where all the Shit happened.... One witness said he saw me bounce out of a truck rut and my bike was 20 feet in the air and upside-down.....
(I think the low temperature is a major factor)... there was no ice, snow, salt, sand, oil, or any debris on the road..... the officer & fire fighters even confirmed it.... no tickets were issued.....

I have no medical insurance due to no employment.... benefit dinner will be happening soon by the Standish Knights of Columbus... TBA
Cold pavement / salt dust. I've skated across pavement in that situation when it normally would have stuck. That's why early season riding is slooooooooooow in all curves. Glad you came out ok.

Heal well and ride on.

X2 on the sticky!

Please set up a pay pal so those of us who can't make the trip to the east side for the benifit and contribute,
remind people to make donations through pay pal as a "gift" I think gifting money gets rid of pay pals cut.

I've seen that type of bike on the freeways before. I was told either a.rider too weak to hold up the bike or a rider who is handicapped.
There you go Stogie!
