I send my warmest thoughts and wishes for Doug's recovery.

Strange to read this now. I was talking to a guy just today - who noticed that I had a Harley cap on...a very dirty cap. He asked if I had a bike. I told him that in my life, I've owned 3, but I don't recommend them to anybody because I know first hand how dangerous they can be. I don't consider them dangerous necessarily because of my own driving skills, but more related to the driving skills of others.

Well...let me back up. What I said about others' driving skills isn't entirely true. During my "last accident" I slid about 40 feet across concrete into a gasoline pump. The incident was completely my fault because I saw that a road crew had been doing street repairs with tar and gravel. I was careless and caused my own accident. I was hurt pretty bad, but not critically.

Anyway...the guy said, "Oh, well, uh, I just bought a Fat Boy. My wife was really, really mad when I told her about wanting to get one, but now...she loves riding with me." And then he goes on to say that he himself had an extended stay in the hospital over a bike accident a few years ago. Go figure?

I learned my lesson. Sorry Doug met with this accident as I know he loves did his mom and dad.

I've certainly been thinking a lot about Doug over the last few days and hoping a speedy recovery for him even though I know that pain sucks and healing takes a long time.
Much seems to be made about his riding a motorcycle. I don't think that was necessarily an issue. He could have been driving his Jeep or an 18 wheeler. A goddamn cow in the road is just something you don't expect and can't be prepared for.
I hope the bike can be rebuilt and I hope Doug can get back on it soon.

The day before his wreck Doug wrote this:

All my best, Doug. And here's to your speedy recovery and return. Keep doing what you love. It's the best way to live.

I was always concerned about you Doug. Due to the fact you were always having a cow-about something or another. Little did I know the cow would have you. At least temporarily.

Meanwhile 100k miles in how long? Damn! I thought I rode………..road.

The past is always tense, the future perfect.

I am certain that Doug had the last word with regard to that cow. I sent a message to Doug that he had to get back here pronto or I would sell CHB to "The Huffington Post." That should piss him off and get him up and about.

He has some messages from the home page and I will link that stuff here. We might have some new members coming in, so behave yourselves!
