Spot

Fl Pepper, the spot is great idea. I was actually looking into those. My wife would like that too. I have no problem with her knowing where I am all the time.Really important if you ride alone. Sometimes I do. I like the solitude.
Alex, Margie will put a kit together. We have one in all our vehicles, except the DRZ. She takes pride in her first aid kits, so you're getting one whether you want it or not.
I had all kinds of challenges planned this Summer! I guess the challenge now is to get back to the point where I can ride again. (and work).
Bay Pines VA hospital in the morning.... Colar bone is broken loose 1" from the shoulder. Can be screwed together maybe, cut the 1" piece off, or a special sling for 6 weeks. None of the options sounds easy!
Could be a much worse situation!

thanks Kyle, you and Margie are way too generous.

the spot is great if you ride alone but for when riding with people and in a place with cell coverage give the latitude app a try on your phone. even if Margie doesn't have a android phone she can get on the computer and see where you are. Ashley and i used to use it so she could always see that i was moving or that i had gotten to where i was going. it was nice cause i didn't have to remeber to keep checking in, kept me from getting yelled at a lot.

good luck at the docs tomorrow. i can't believe they are letting this go so long without patching you up, i thought the whole point of the ER was to fix you up right then and there when stuff like this happens? i'd hate to think that one day i'll break a leg or and arm and have to go days before it gets fixed.

and yeah, it could have been worse. do you think a neck brace would have prevented the broken collar bone?

Hey Tommy not sure if you heard yet or not but.... Bobby (stylin97 on nr ) died last night on his bike. I've been friends with for a long time and have rode with him and he was always a calm rider when I was with him.
