    Just saying hello, with a few pictures. This Friday will be two weeks ago, a lady ran a stop sign and t-boned me. I got knocked out, had a concussion and some neck and back injuries, but it sure could have been a whole lot worse. I was on my Triumph, and it was totaled. Y’all ride safe, idiots are everywhere. Not trying to get all preachy, but I’m thankful I was wearing a full face/modular helmet. A2A0E800-D03C-4BE6-A230-1B13C0CC1971.jpeg 638247FD-9F94-4089-8EE1-AA119051B682.jpeg

    Damn glad you survived. Hoping the bumps and bruises diminish quickly and you will back on top soon.

    Yea are definitely right about the bad drivers. Seems the heat down here in FLA has completely fried any logic and reasoning behind the wheel lately!!! Always bad here but the last month has been outright insane!!!

    Good to hear you weren’t seriously hurt. You’re so right about the idiots. One got me the week before Christmas.

    A big “thank you” to all of you. Depending on what the insurance company says, I’m thinking about trading the Chief for a big, white Chieftain Dark Horse with loud pipes. I’m hoping that’ll make me more visible.

    Glad you are still with us Gator! I know how you feel...I was run over by a truck last September and still in recovery. Too many "blind" idiots out there driving into motorcyclists.

    He might be referring to the Renegade. Probably debut at Sturgis.

    Ah, ok. I guess I’ve been out of the loop! That’ll give me something new to obsess over!

    Thanks man, I’m guessing that no matter what you’re riding, you can’t fix stupid.

    I don’t “Like” that you were hit. But I’m glad it seems to be a minor interruption rather than a more permanent one.

    Glad you are okay. Sorry about your bike. It doesn't matter how "visible" you are, cagers still won't see you. :mad:
