Getting ready to catch the bus to boston to catch the plane to San Diego to ride the rt beemer waiting at my buddies house in SoCal. Daughter and I are hoping to see the PCH, Yosemite, Big Sur, Sequoia forest and whatever else we can squeeze in 10 days or so. Please wish us luck especially after the morning ride i had yesterday. Went for my usual coffee stop and while stopped at an intersection , red light , first in line at the light, the woman in the ford excursion behind me decides to gas it on green and mow me and my 1400 custom over. Pushed me down to the right side and pinned my right ankle between the bent up floor board and the engine block. No fractures just a good old twist sprain. Got lucky ,I guess. I'll post post more on that when we , if we return. NC Dan knows the details and is welcome to share. Too much planning and commitments to cancel the trip and the doc gave me an air cast and said go if you feel you can, just watch out for any more swelling or redness, took a spin on the griso this am with no issues other than typical pain,stiffness but already better than yesterday after icing it al night. If it acts up we'll ditch the bike and rent a cage but I think we,ll be fine. so off we go.
Stay safe out there all you brothers and sisters, some things are just unavoidable I guess, but expect the unexpected always. More when we return.
