Thanks guys. It has been a long hard rode. Everyone that rides a bike or just lives for that matter, needs to consider the danger we all live in and what is possible. I almost never see nor hear from others that have had horrific accidents and continued with life. Most of the ones I hear about are barely living by staying home and living on a couch. F that life!

I get on a SCI Forum (Spinal Cord Injury) and they just complain about pain and not being able to work. Let me tell you, I live in pain, I don't take any medications for pain. I just mentally try to block it all out. I work hard every day as well. People are !

Brian:

Thanks for sharing, I remember when your accident happened, You are real fighter and wish you the best.

No disrespect or offense but I don't remember if you mentioned about the riding gear you were wearing the day of the accident. Do you remember the moment of the crash? The jacket was having a back protector? riding pants?

Get well soon and hope you are not having any more health issues. I am also diabetic and they found out by accident because I was also very thirsty.

I remember everything about the accident up until they put me to sleep. I remember hitting the brakes and being in a full stoppie before hitting the car. I remember being winded and laying face down in the dirt. I remember no one willing to help me turn over so I turned myself. I remember the white Mercury cougar. I remember saying don't let them get away. (thinking they were not stopping because I didn't see the car near me) I was 160 feet from the impact.

I was wearing full gear from head to toe. Helmet, 2 piece suit, boots and gloves. The 2 piece suit did not have a back protector. I still have the helmet, boots and gloves on my desk above me on display.

On another note, someone sent me this, I near died laughing.

Hard to believe it's been 10 years. I first think back to our first 2 trips to Arkansas and how much fun we had tearing up the roads, buzzing rednecks, (and getting buzzed BY rednecks), lane splitting through towns and getting lost. Then I think about "the day". I can remember everything about that day. You and Brandi stopping to tell me to hurry up and unload my bike and to catch up with you one the Pig Trail. 20 minutes difference in my arrival and it might have been both of us. I can't adequately describe my emotions on seeing the car, then your bike, and then you in that ditch.
We all rode back in a stupor, wondering if you would make it or not. Well, you did and obviously it hasn't been easy, but you continue to do it. There's no one, especially me, that's not grateful for having known you or ridden with you.
You suffer, you persevere, you take care of your family, and you live life like a MAN. Don't ever quit!
On another note, if you'll ever get a real harness in that "Datsun," I'll take you out and teach you to drive it.

Not knowing your story, let me just say congratulations on the twins.!

You had me choked up and eyes watering there. Roll on.

Brian. I had no idea you going thru such a hard time. I don't have your phone number or address anymore. I remember staying with you when you got out of hospital before your ramp was build. I admired your strength an attitude. I would gladly come see you if you need me. .

GD it Paul we had so much fun out there. I will never forget that time when that redneck with the trailer tried to purposely take you out after I blew by him. I saw all that smoke from the tires and just thought the worse. Then we got some great laughs about the story telling. That is what makes every trip special to me. The adventure and fun that you share with someone else so you can have those memories for years.

I am sorry we didn't wait for you. I am sorry you had to see that. I love you as a friend Paul and I wish we could ride together again. I wish you would have left with me when I rode to Deals Gap on a whim. Lol...I still get a kick out of that trip. It was such a blast and you missed out. I met some awesome, crazy Canadians there.

As for the Harness, I may see if my friend and I can fabricate something up. He can do all that without an issue. You know if I get that harness, you and your Porsche doesn't stand a chance in . So if I get a harness does that mean you'll finally ride shotgun? lol

The best of times...the worst of times.

Yeah, I'll ride shotgun...if you also put in a cage. Remember I've seen you ride AND drive.

, 10 years already. I remember the thread on HSN and lost another friend in 04 and gave up riding for a while. I've never seen anyone come back from injury like you, even getting a quad and roosting with us in the dirt. I had a nasty crash last year and have given up riding again, actually fell into kind of a funk about it, and then I think about what you have overcome and how positive you stay.
Thanks again for being an inspiration.

Thanks for bumping this every year or so. I like reading stories like these to humble myself. We all want to be fast have fun but at the end of the day we just want to go home safely. I think I have read this story 3 times now, and it still makes me just sit back and count my blessings. I also enjoy following your progress over time, reading about things you have accomplished and I have taken for granted. Nothing I been through in my life could compare to the hurdles you have blew threw to get you to where you are today (after the accident). Keep it up man, and keep us updated

Thanks, at this point in my life, my goals are to stay out of the hospitals! Every day is some sort of a struggle but we all have struggles. My wish is that none of you guys ever have to go through the issues I have from surviving an accident. I'm thankful for a lot. I see life much differently. I don't know if it's age, the wreck or both. But I try to live my life without regret of not having tried something. I also don't let someone say you can't do this or that. Life is way too short.
