Well I got home (barely), after leaving stubborn ole Doc in Eureka my front wheel bearing started screaming for mercy but rode it home. It's shot so a new one will have to be ordered.

As for Doc, he and will be a hurting puppy. His stoicism is commendable but he is one hard headed mofo...sheesh. Imagine, after going down so hard he wanted to complete our ride! Hell he almost couldn't get back onto his bike at this point...the damned dummy. I told him we were going home and he said "Yes mother".....ha

The slab



I was leading both times we crossed it, but my bike stayed upright with a slight slide coming back out. I was lucky and Doc wasn't.

The wreck shortly after it happened.



We were pondering picking up the bike for a while because the whole slab felt like snot on a glass door knob. As I was about to pick the bike up this couple came down the road and offered to help get the bike up. Meet Loyd and Barbara. Nice folks but a little bit country...they (Barbara) apologized to me because they had BOTH taken their false teeth out and left them in the truck...haha



Anyway I couldn't get the rhythm of starting the XR (it wasn't going to happen). The foot peg of his bike was bent so badly that we had to loosen it to give room to kick the bike. It had been on it's side for a while before it was righted so it was slightly flooded.

We had come down a fairly steep hill to the low water bridge so I had to hump the bike up the hill in neutral so Doc could bump start the beast which he did quite gracefully. We then headed for Hiway 76 onto 37 and finally 62 to Eureka.

Doc said he wasn't hurting when he breathed but I'm pretty sure he was. By the time we got to the White River Doc needed gas and didn't get off his bike to do it. He filled the bike with it running and I went in to pay for it so he wouldn't have to get off the bike. Once in Eureka we stopped again so I could see how he was and he couldn't turn his head to talk to me (without pain). I offered to go home get my trailer and take him back but he refused (hard headed dummy...sheesh). More on the ride report thread HERE.

Very sorry to read of Doc's painful fall. Hope there are no fractures in his collar bone or shoulder area, etc. If it was a front end wash out... he fell forward and hit hard on that slab of concrete. Very easy to fracture a bone in the shoulder area in such a situation. Watched a friend totally destroy a collar bone on a front end washout on hard pack dirt w/rocks. Not good.

Falls are hard enough on young bodies... so just think how Doc feels. After all, he was born right after the Civil War.

Doc is a tough ole bird. He was actually wanting to go onto Powell for a swim. He almost couldn't get back on his bike because of the pain. Maybe being born around the time of the Civil War makes ya tough?

FUCK!! THAT HURT!!!!

I am home, as comfortable as I can be..had to drive my 1 ton truck home from Mossycreeks and I left the XR there... took me almost an hour to drive that tank 5.5 miles..I felt each and EVERY bump!

That low water bridge was slick! I did okay going thru it the first time, but sucked into the slime commin back thru. I have never busted a rib before so I am not sure if I had this time or if I just cracked it..but it does hurt and if I move just right, it sucks my breath away.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes..I am gonna be outta commision for a while..now I gotta figger out how to wipe my ass

Doc, you take care of yourself, sounds like you took a mean one. Those low water bridges are awful, very slick and slimy too. I went across a one in Texas in truck and just about slid off, and I was just barely moving. It would seem like if you had a friend that took you down that road to your wipe out, it would seem he would be there for the next time you need a wipe off.

Don't laugh if you have a cracked rib, and even worse don't cough, I know quite a bit about how much that hurts. Let us know how you are tomorrow when you are able to make it to the computer.
