Richard,

Glad to hear that your recovery is coming along.
While I don't envy your position, I've always envied your spirit.

It's good to see that this crash hasn't hurt your outlook at all.


Speedy recovery,
wishing you the best.

home - stage 1.

so still in one piece typing with my left hand
pins in the left ankle- only 4 thought

not a scratch on my otherwise broken up body
since my BMW gear proved its value on the pavement of highway 1 that night
I really wanted to look at my gear
transition boots
motorad ed. gloves
arai helmet
the summer two piece w/ flow thru mesh
and knee zipper vents
it would seem the bmw gear works - thank God.

I had my little pc1 dv in my jacket pocket but it got ripped off>>>
or whatever

and this paz towing pla ce threw out all my stuff they say?>>>
watch out for watsonville Paz towing>>>>
I figure they took one look at the stuff and figured me for ..dead
and i dispute this 100 mph police report stuff too
and please stay right EXCEPT TO PASS.
well It is good to still be here
just fyi

losing dv pc1 sucks since it had my wedding vid
oh well
life goes on
check out City of God to see how lucky many of us are
thanks
let the good times roll!!!

Richard,

Sorry to hear the towing guys have chosen to reap some harsh karma.

Glad to hear your at home and typing left handed.

Keep healing, and back in the saddle soon.

Hey Richard,

I went to the Chimera booth and asked if you were around. I was then
told of your motorcycle accident. I was really sorry to hear about that, but
I am glad you survived. I hope to meet you next year.

Jacques

PS: When I read your most recent posts about Mr. Hurd
I was starting to think you weren't wearing a helmut :)
