Hey guys this is John Chris's friend posting from the hopspital. I ended up in worse shape than Chris and have a hairline fracture in my wrist and also a broken leg on my tibia bone I believe, had to have surgery to get a metal rod placed in my leg yesterday. I'm having to start physical therapy to start walking again and so far it's been very painful. I'll probably be here for at least another couple days, but even so it won't be another 4-6 months before my legs 100% again. Kinda sucks since i was also in the process of joining the air force.

Anyways we found out this guy was 61 years old, had no insurance, and was also drunk at the time. He is currently in jail and thats all i know at this point. We had plenty of witnesses at the time of the accident so i hope this guys goes down for more than a dui.

Its basically as chris said, I only remember us leaving the forest and then this car pulling out right in front of us making the turn across the lane of traffic without even stopping to look, then i remember chris nailing him a split second later then thats it. Next thing i know im in a helicopter getting taken to the hospital. I dont even recall hitting the car, witnesses say tho i flew over and landed on my head

All I can say is gear saved me and would have been alot worse if i hadn't been wearing any. my helmet is apparently thrashed all over and its cracked on the side. I can only assume my bikes totaled and i need to check it out to see if i can scrap any parts off of it before i work with the insurance on it. I appreciate all your guys kind words.

Glad to hear you're coherent & will recover! Good for you for gearing up - it's a nice counterpoint to all the RIP threads that have been on the boards lately. :/:

Wow. You two were very unlucky to wind up in that situation, but you were incredibly fortunate with the outcome. The bikes look better than I would have expected too. Perhaps you were able to bleed off more speed than you realized before impact?

Anyway, best wishes to you both for a speedy recovery. Keep up with the PT, it hurts like , but pays big dividends in the long run. Try to focus on the fortunate aspects of this (like the fact that you're both still here and can get back to 100%) rather than the misfortune.

Thanks for wearing gear. It makes all the difference in the world. You're still here as a result and everyone that reads this needs to understand the importance of gear. Get well and thank your lucky stars that you are able to ride again. Alot of people don't get that chance. I'm one of those.

Ive actually been in this same type of incident (cage turning left in front of me) twice! 2 wrecks, both times completely unavoidable. Full gear saved me both times, but whats getting me is that my 2 crashes were both at 40-45mph. Just that extra little bit of speed ya'll had (60mph, right?) caused so much more carnage. Makes me feel even luckier.

Keep your head up dude, you'll be back on two wheels soon enough. Like so many others have said, good on ya' for wearing your gear! I use my stories as testimonials when i try and talk riders into wearing their gear.

I am glad to hear that you are both recovering and hope you get back to 100%.

These people make me very angry. How the does a person make it to 61 years old being that irresponsible? He should be damned to twice! Once for driving drunk, and the second eternity for driving without insurance. This is a sure sign of a member of society that we would all be better off without. Probably abuses children too. Scum.

Anyways we found out this guy was 61 years old, had no insurance, and was also drunk at the time. He is currently in jail and thats all i know at this point. We had plenty of witnesses at the time of the accident so i hope this guys goes down for more than a dui.
