    A Kentucky riding friend (not Brent) this past late Friday afternoon had a medical helicopter ride out of Union County river bottoms. He was riding by himself but it is said someone had seen it happened and came to his rescue. It is said he was going around 25-30 MPH just putting along. He has several cracked vertebra (which should heal 6-8 weeks) and a real bad concussion. Can only faintly remember a couple of blimps in those first few hours. The deer was killed, friends helmet destroyed, but his KTM350 escaped destruction (per his buddy who has the wrecker service).

    I carry a Garmin Inreach just for those situations, but you know what? They are not worth a darn if your not conscious to activate it!

    So sorry to hear about your friend. Hopefully he is back on the bike again soon. I wonder why SPOT and Garmin haven't put accelerometers in their units already for such occasions. There are some smartphone apps that notify 911 if they detect a crash (abrupt stop). Unfortunately they only work in areas covered by cell service.

    Hey Tpar,
    I've watched all of her videos------------she's really interesting.
    Since her Himilayan is trapped in Peru-------she just bought a 2015 Honda CB500X-------where she is at in the Netherlands it will be better suited for her doing mostly road riding. And she has short legs------so I heard :D

    Me and a buddy just finished riding the Wyoming TAT---------it was awesome.
    Sam has a S. Dakota version too.
    Since I got bored with single track long ago--this stuff really suits my scenic passion.

    Sarah, I think you are getting very good at doing “photoshop material” out of the comfort of that Lake Lemon home of yours! :lol3

    Does look like a good ride. You every think of asking any of us Hoosiers to go along with you on these rides of yours???:dirtdog
