Admiral Yamamoto infamously said "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a man with a rifle behind every blade of grass."
And so it should be, a nation of riflemen....
Damn, hope he is okay! Any details on how bad ? I enjoy reading his blog, he doesn't take Anon comments or I'd comment there too.My wife has dropped her bike twice - both times when she was going very slowly and no traffic behind her to hit her. Still had to drag herself out of it - bruises to inner thigh were surreal, she was hurting bad. I remind her that those accidents were best case scenarios - hitting or getting hit by another would be a world of suck. She's a true biker - sez what will be will be.
Broke 5 ribs and his collarbone.
I talked to him on the phone after it happened and he woke up in ICU. It was 7 ribs and the collarbone. They kept him a couple of nights but he has a friend that is going to drive him home in a rental car while another tows the bike home in a trailer. He was loopy from the meds but realized it could have been much worse. The bike is fixable, but Borepatch will be a few months mending.
Thanks, Bridgid.I'm keeping track of his progress on his blog.My sister fell out of a swing set when she was about 6 years old, and broke her collarbone.
Keep it civil, please....
