With Dan and James right behind.



There was a junction the had Scofield 15 miles so we thought to try it.
Up till then the roads had been fine few puddles nothing bad at all.
As we started out there were a few more wet spots and I noticed they
were a little more slick. I'd backed off on a slimey looking one and
Kevin blasted through it. I just thought I wasn't worth dropping 600lbs to me.

We then came up on another larger wet section with Kevin maybe 10 yards
ahead of me. You could see it was pure slime and I watched the BMW go
down. Normally I would go for the Trophy Photo but I could tell Kevin was
not going to jump up. The bike went down with his knee taking most the
impact and at an odd angle. He was hurt! Here's Dr. Dan checking out
what he could.



Dan had planned on a different type ride an had his side bags on. He had
filled them stuff to justify having them on. Pulls out this first aid kit that would
make a hospital blush. Tried to get Kevin to put on the hospital gown but that
didn't go over well.

I'm not a doctor but I have seen Karate Kid twice and felt confident I could try the
hand rub so Kevin could do the Swan move on his bike. He wasn't interested.
Dan put a Ace bandage on instead and there was enough signal strenth to text his
wife to bring the Fambulance, (Jeep and a trailer she had to hook up herself)

Kevin decided if we could get him on his bike he could make it to Highway 6 and he did.
800 milligrams of meds may have helped.

The mud hole...







On the way out at a snails pace I got a front flat??? Couldn't see any tire failure
and had only added a new small ding to the front rim. I aired up and it held fine.
That was weird.



After a reasonable wait Kevin's wife shows up, the bike is loaded and the rest of us
slab it back to SLC. Bummer about the knee, I think he really was in pain.


Good RR. Sorry again for f'ing up the ride. Thanks to all for sticking around to help me get down the road and load the bike. . After a night of ice, pain killers and swelling, its off to the ortho. Swelling wont go down and the pain meds are the only savior.

Hey, I had sex too!

On a serious note, I hope it's not as bad as it sounds like it feels. Hard to admit but
we don't heal up like we used to. Keep us updated.

Wed afternoon anyone?

I'm going to ride Wed afternoon/evening if anyone can play hooky...

Hick: that bites.

BrokenLegGuy: that bites. I don't trust mud AT ALL. I would have tiptoed through that slop on my light bike. I twisted my knee bad going 1 mph in mud.

I broke the top of my tibula off rolling backwards on a trials bike. Doesn't take much
to end up with a car ride home.

8 " vertical crack on my right tibia. 6-8 weeks recovery depending if pins are needed. Minimum 6 wks.

And it's my driving leg...no driving!

Stooopid mistake. First three had dry lines and my line looked dry. Nope, only the crust. Hard lesson learned.

Hey Pluric good RR and nice touch with the humor. Sounds like 2wheeladv will be out of commission for a while. Might be able to get that Truimph real cheap now

bummer, but look at the bright side, in the long run these generally heal up better than ligament or cartilage injuries. Keep us up to date on your progress. Hope to ride with you again after you heal

Bike is up and running again. Simple fix, just hard to get to.

I have six days before I need to be back to work...probably wont make it all the way to Mexico, but damned if I'm not going to try. I've only had one full day of off-road since Friday and I am hungry for more

Damn! That sucks, but this is a good point....the bones will usually come back to 100% after a bit. I've never been on mud so slippery as we have in Utardia....it scares me pretty bad now on the big bike. Hope you heal up well!
