    Default ChattanoogaBusa Is Down...

    On the way home from the Bash today, Daniel had a wreck on the skyway. A strong gust of wind hit him in a curve and pushed him into the guard rail. He wasn't speeding, but everyone who started their drive home today can testify as to how windy it was. He's okay--beaten up pretty badly, but he's home. I had driven separately in my car, so I wasn't with him. We took different routes, and he didn't have cell phone service where he crashed, so I didn't know about it until I was almost home. Several people stopped to help him and make sure he was okay, and one family even gave him a ride to meet me in Tennessee on their way home. The bike is in several pieces, it was taken to Robbinsville by a wrecker, and is a total loss.

    I am glad it was the bike under the guard rail and not him. Best of luck and hope he heals up quickly from his bounce~!~

    He needs to play the lottery tonight....that was the worst looking bike wreckage I have ever seen where the rider is "ok."

    Walking away never felt so good I'm sure. Wish him a speedy recovery, what little he may have.

    Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this. The winds on the Skyway were pretty bad yesterday and agree they were strong going home. Let us know what you need and know we are thinking about you guys.
