Rider Down

I am sad to have to report that Jay Willie has gone down.

Yesterday afternoon he was rounding a left hand curve when he apparently got too close to the outside and hit some loose gravel. He low sided and slid for about 25 ft, then the bike dug in and flipped for about 30 ft. He very narrowly missed hitting a post in the ground, which is good, but there were very large jagged rocks in the ditch that he landed in, so that didn't give him a very soft place to land. He was wearing a helmet, and leather jacket that may have saved his life, because he did take a pretty solid blow to the head. He is in the hospital with a broken rib and a partially collapsed lung on his right side. He seems to be doing well, and should be out of the hospital in a day or two.

The bike is pretty banged up, nothing big looks broken, but it looks like it hit the ground from every angle. Looks like there may be enough damage to total it, we'll just have to tear it down and asses it

Many well wishes to a speedy recovery.:please:

It's a bad deal that this happened, but he will be very happy that everyone cares so much for a fellow rider who's been hurt. Many thanks for all the good words.

Jay Willie...Heal up fast and get back on that horse, yo! Summer's pining away.

Glad your wounds weren't reported to be worse.
