January 12 2014  I ended up with 14 broken ribs , punctured lung, shattered liver and facial fractures. All I have is vague memory of flying through some trees until I awoke in the hospital. I was back on the road by July would have been sooner but had to convince the wife I needed another bike.

You are lucky to still be with us, dude.

Any idea what caused you to leave the road?

Don't have a clue. The guy behind me had said it looked like my rear tire locked up. I wasn't in a curve. When I went back to look at it there was some pea gravel about a foot onto the road so just guessing I probably tapped the rear brake close to the edge of the road I started to slide and with the shoulder only about a foot wide before starting down the embankment off I went.

It can happen so fast. Sometimes it best not to remember what happened. Maybe we miss remembering the pain with it.
