Yesterday at about 415 pm I was coming down a gravel a little too fast and meet a pipeline workers truck on a blind turn. It did no go well for me or my bike
I was hit broad side on my left side. This has fractured left tibia and I have a left wrist fracture. I am now in extreme pain and basically nonfunctional.
The turn was wild and I came into it a bit too fast. Both me and the truck meet in the middle of the road. The truck won the battle.
The truck driver was nice enough to give me a ride to the Del Norte hospital where I thought I got good care.
I’m out of the continental divide ride for this year
Vicky my lovely wife is driving out to take me home
The bike 2014 KTM 1190 r adventure is broken. Frame bent radiator broke front wheel bent and a list of injurys.
I’ll be shipping the bike back to Sacramento and see if MPC KTM can repaire it.
Well things change
The bike is broken beyond repair. Frame is broken. Both forks broken many more things. It is now a parts bike. Sad.
We need a photo of the two crippled couple.
