    hope your bud is doing ok...I grew up in Pa and dear are every where on roads..down here it is the wild boar ands some small deer

    I raced for 30 some years and this was not my first crash by far....I just rode it out and did not panic. people at scene were great/helpful..first thing I always did in the racecar after crash was wiggle my toes..if toes move most things will heal in time..thurs my right toes moved fine but left side had problem moving, I asked one of people there at scene what was up with left foot and was told it pointed in wrong direction..oops..I was just hoping it was just broken toes..I did not want to move head or body to look

    thanks again everyone

    but shit, driving in FL puts me on edge, can't imagine being on two wheels there.
    it's a special kind of chaos

    Heal well. Take your time.

    Don't say anything to anyone, including this forum. Do not relay the story or any material info, get a lawyer.

    Test case to have the driver certified as blind by their own admission that they didn't see you.

    The people who claim they didn't see the motorcyclist need to start having their licenses taken away because they admit they can't see. They saw, they didn't care.
    ETV stands for Extra-Terrestrial Vehicle. The only thing better than having one is having two.

    Glad to hear you are (mostly) alright. I'd always wondered how all of these blind people get their license.

    Sorry to hear of your accident mw, hope you heal fast and soon. 2 years ago, 17th August a van turned across my path when I was mid corner, ended up laying it down and missed it by a couple of feet. I was only a bit banged up, nothing broken but took me 8 months to get over a hand injury. The Tuono was totalled, it was really hard not to attack the driver and I'm still super cautious at intersections.

    Shit! good to hear you're only a "little beat up" = mortally wounded.
    Get well soon, don't let the bastards keep you down.

    Mike, you're resembling your avatar more every day! But seems like that finger should be pointed at 'she who lacks sight behind the wheel' instead.

    And dude, please don't forget the stool softeners while on the pain meds or life will suck even more.

    Perhaps a dumb question but would you still like those brake rotors? they're yours for the asking if so.

    Dogs are the best people.

    A little beaten up! You look a lot better in that photo than you do in your avatar.
    FUCK THE MAGS


    Never live the same day twice. (My wife nearly pissed her self laughing when she read my signature line, because she reckons she has never met anyone in the whole of her life who hates change more than me) She does have a point .

    Tough break man.....pun intended!

    Sorry about that. Heal up, and come back stronger, better - faster.

    This is another reason I refused to move to Florida, when my employer told me I HAD to.
    Needless to say, I'm no longer working for them.

    She could have got a pair of glasses to fix that.

    Hope your healing goes well mw.
    Good to see that there's nothing wrong with the middle finger on your left hand.
