I'm a Merchant Marine and devout patriot, have been riding anything with a sprocket since I was eight years old. I've had more crashes than I can count and have broken several bones, sprained multiple joints and torn tendons/ligaments and even sacrificed calf skin to the scolding hot pipe gods.
What Bikes/Trikes do you own
2010 Harley Electra Glide Classic
What type of music do you like
Anything besides gospel. Unless you have metal covers of gospel, might be interesting.
Have you had a Bike/Trike accident that you want to tell us about
In 2009 I broke my left foot in two places, ankle, tibia, fibula, two ribs, hyper extended my knee and tore the meniscus. In 2006 I was turning into the bank on a 1981 Wide Glide (loved that shovelhead) and was struck from behind by a lowered Honda Civic or Acura Integra, he fled the scene and I only saw him in the mirror just before he impacted; I tried to move but was too late, pushed into a sideways slide off the shoulder and had my leg pinned under the frame. A couple of motorists stopped to assist me. I was lucky and only sustained a sprained shoulder and torn rotator cuff along with 3rd degree burns on my leg through the jeans. The last one was on a 2006 Heritage Soft tail, was just pulling away from a gas pump and a car cut through the pumps between me and another vehicle fueling. Struck my left side and pushed me into the pump. When I put my right foot down to keep from falling, it was caught between the peg platform and the curbing around the pump and as the toes rolled under the ball of my foot I was just waiting to feel the familiar pop of a fracture. And it did. I got back up and tried to chase down the car, to no avail, and then went to the hospital. Couldn't tell you how many close calls and near death moments I've dodged but I feel like that next baaad one is right around the corner.
