Yesterday at ~ 500 in the morning....pretty foggy....in places I could not see 100 feet....news said .3 miles in some places....bs. Anyway I am being pretty careful....being that I tend to ride very careful in the first place....add to that damp roads, I can't see shit, and cleaning the shield about every 3 minutes. County 2 lane highway (on the way to work) it is posted 55, bet I am topping out at 45, with some 30's in there....you just can't see. I come out of a section of S curves....there is a driveway at the top of the hill....gray truck sitting there....I slow down....thinking I want him to see me. I am target focused on the truck...he moves, I start to pull my eyes down and wammo....big doe. Now first of all I know, I should not have focused on the known threat but keep scanning....it is the enemy you don't see that gets you. Good news is I tagged her at.....I am guessing 35-40....so not too hard.... Battle damage, 3 broken ribs, 1 wrist, knee and ankle are starting to feel better....today is better then yesterday. Hella headache, now that other stuff is starting to hurt less, different things hurt. 2nd day of a headache, Jaw is sore....guess from the strap of the helmut. Bike is/was a Versys 650....not sure if it is totalled yet....going to the shop today....I think it rolled a time or two. Now what did I learn.... First keep scanning....been riding for over 35 years now, been down a few times, but this is my first broken bones.....EVER. I have never broken a bone in my body in my life till I hit 54. 2 Fuck wearing a watch....I wear watches, I like nice watches....I was wearing a cheapo Seiko automatic, and somehow it got ripped off my left arm, took my glove with it, ended up with some pretty good road/watch rash. Think the watch will be in my pocket from now on. The glove and watch where laying in the road....middle of the road about 60 feet from where I ended up....right next to each other. This is the only rash I got aside from a tiny bit on my shoulder where is rubbed through the jacket....the armor stopped everything else....I was geared up.....only thing not "motorcycle" was hiking boots. I "think" I blacked out, not sure how long.....called work (I work at a sheriffs office) told them I hit a deer, need help.....then a citizen showed up and waited with me till the EMS showed up. Thought I really bruised my brain as one of my Lt's was there in hose dragger garb.....loaded me up and off to hospital. Level 2 trauma. Funny thing is I am laying there the first guy is still with me, and a Hardly rider shows up (is it friday?)......no shit shorts and flip flops.....really dude.....off he rumbles. Neck pretty sore, day 2 of a headache....but I got out of it lucky. Posted up some comments on the BSC thread on one of the nurses asking if my wife was going to "let" me get another bike. Africa Twin and Tiger are the short list. No pics of the bike they are all on the wifes phone, I have not got them off yet....or pulled the report to see what the office took. So I am laying there in Hospital and my Sheriff and that same Lt. shows up to see how I am doing....that is so nice....where do you see that. anymore? Home today....as I am not a deputy I can go back to work when I feel....think I will wait for the headache to calm down....see how the car feels with the ribs....and I still get a little woozy from time to time. What else did I learn....got pretty bad arthritis in my neck, some "nodule" in my lungs they found...need to talk to the regular Dr. about those things....so if that little lump in my lungs turns out to be something bad this might endup being a good thing.
