The ticket is for left of center, I talked to him about it yesterday. He also noted that he got very 'anti-motorcycle' vibes from the cop; low-brow dirtbike comments and what not.

Thanks Mike, I sent Alan a message but never heard back hoping if he was ok, he'd be able to reply.

That's always been my biggest fear. I sometimes get so far inside I have to correct for obstacles, last winter I hit a mail box leaned over in a corner while with Tom. In Michigan last week I came close to being the hood ornament on a Jeep Cherokee. Pure dumb luck of the front tucking when I swerved in the sand and grabbing shot me away from the Jeep into the ditch

That sucks. Hope Alan heals fast and gets some good therapy once it heals. I hope his insurance is willing to fight for his side.

Heal fast alanz.

Im hoping to see the outcome of his ticket come out favorably too. Been in his situation a few times. Got a few tickets I didn't deserve (commit).

This past Tuesday our own Alansz was WRR'n it over to see the new Honda CRF when he met a pickup truck mid-corner on a 1 lane dirt road. He cut right to miss it, but caught the bumper with his left leg.

A statie showed up, made some anti-dirtbike comments, and ended up citing Alan for left of center . It was a 1 lane road, and the truck was pulling a large trailer... make your own conclusion.

Alan was flown down here to Ohio State University Hospital, and an Inmate picked up his bike, which apparently isn't in to bad of shape.

I met a few folks at the hospital Wednesay, but Alan was pretty zonked. Had a bit of an erector set thing going on with his left leg, which is broken (both bones) just below the knee. That appears to be the only substantial damage though. He was in the transplant department , but had a nice room. The goal was for Surgery Friday, and home Monday or Tuesday.

I went back Thursday morning and he was nowhere to be found. Apparently the doctors were concerned about swelling, so they brought him into surgery early, where they were replacing the external brace with plates and screws on the bones.

Which brings us to Friday (yesterday), I stopped by after work and almost walked into someone else's room. Apparently they moved him out of the transplant department up to the ortho...broken-bone... department, where he's now sharing a room with some elderly guy who is absolutely hating life, yet apparently has a lot of friends. Alan was awake and alert, and fricking miserable; the shared room is ridiculous. The leg looks much better, it's wrapped in ACE type bandage and has one of these things:


Goal now is to leave the Hospital Sunday (Tomorrow).
Sad story

I guess that is why he didn't return my text about DR650 fat boy springs.


Hope he wasn't texting and riding

Get better soon bud!!
