Mitch... I read your entire account of the incident, before realizing who it was that wrote it. Then, I noticed the photo on the side and said... I KNOW that guy! Pic is of Lola Pass, no? Anyway, it's an interesting, but unfortunate post, but tragic that it happened. Hope you're on the fast track to a complete mend! Brian (If you make the trip east, hope to catch up with you.)

Hey ZigZag,  That'd be me. The Dude.  How are things at the B&G?  Still dispensing a full pour I'll bet. Got a new scoot and the cast comes off Wednesday the 16th.  I'll be 2 wheeling again with a 2004 Connie.

If I make it east well def get together.  Hope all is well.

The Dude.

Mitch. Don't think we have met, but here's wishing that you heal up well. From my experiance (similiar total job about five years back) I don't know as though I would believe the insurance company any further than I could throw them. I got jerked around for months by the gal's insurance who pulled out in front of me (and was cited) and I had to argue with them about everything. Everthing from the jacket that the paramedics cut off of me to the airfare to get home from San Jose. My "wreck" was in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Not to mention the bike they wanted to shaft me on. My first Connie. On my third now, although I still have the one I bought to replace that one. Anyway, I hope everything works out for you. Yes, COG is a great organization of individuals.

DamDan, I appreciate your and the other COGers support.  Perhaps we can discuss at the Bun Cooler in May.  Till then ride safe and I'll be doing my best to do the same.
