    That does suck. Hope you get well quickly. :kurt

    When you feel better and are up to typing, please fill us in on what happened.

    In addition to usual bureaucratic process of dealing with an accident in the US, you have one more thing to consider. Did you get your TVIP in advance? If you did, it needs to be cancelled so you don't run into trouble next time you want to go to Mexico.

    No TVIP in advance , so don't have to worry about that .
    Case of crash ... you know guys how we preach to each other don't ride at night , so it was that exhausted after 5 days straight 12 hour shifts at work plus my workouts ( I'm a men's physique competitor ) was trying to save me a day and ride through the night , I guess I dosed off next thing you know I'm in s soggy grass/mud after recent tornadoes and rains in Oklahoma couldn't save the big heavy cruiser and flipped over . Don't remember anything after crash just talking to the guy in a pick up truck that called 911 .

    Sorry to learn of your accident . You were incredibly lucky to have hit a bog and not a rock . Collar bones heal in two months .
    An expensive but useful lesson learnt about pushing on into too-long and too -late riding even on so called home turf .
    Look on the bright side , now you some day get to buy a suitable bike for touring = ),
    ( it only hurts if you laugh and be glad you can still make it hurt)
    Get well quickly .!!!

    Thank you Sjoerd !!! Yes , laying here in hospital bed this idiot is already looking up bikes . No more lazy , big , heavy , pointless cruisers . I see a real adventure bike in the future or at least a goldwing .
    Collar bone will have to be connected with the plate because of my athletic nature . Huge lesson learned !!! ...and riding gear saves lives , don't go cheap on it either .
    I'll make it to Mexico sooner or later , so I might bother you with more questions down the road ....:-)
