Bike kicked my ass.

Hit a deer on my Tenere. Woke up in a ditch about 2 miles from home. Had all my gear on thank the Lord. Broke 5 ribs, sternum and collapsed lung. Right wrist was a mess that required plates, screws and some other expensive hardware to fix. Cracked a few vertebrae.

Bike is a totaled and Progressive did me very well on settlement.

Everything will heel fine. Wrist will be fine with time. On fully paid short term disability pay. All in all, very lucky to be here.

PLEASE WEAR YOUR HELMET, mine saved my life....again.

2003 green Rinny (12,400 miles), "25" Bighorn Radials (white letters out) full of extra slime, water pump mod, no warning labels, E Trex, everything else like Mr. Honda made it. 2000 XR 400r (est 3,500 miles). RIDE RED EVEN IF ITS GOT GREEN PLASTIC!

2013 Yamaha Super Te'ne're' (27,400 miles in 22 months), 1996 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 (392,000 miles) on tight and original motor. 2001 4Runner (82,000 miles).

Nope, it ran off. I hit it in the ass at an angle. Shopping for a new bike is making me feel better
