The End of the Trip

I am back home in Mississauga, in good health, taking Physio treatments for my right knee, which was injured in a crash in Washington state on July 18.

I was turning left, 10 am sun in eyes, ended up too near right shoulder, and heading to a drop-off on the right. When I tried to turn left, the front end wiped out on pine needles. I stayed on the road; the bike slid off and down the embankment.

I have decided to spend the insurance settlement on a new car for Dianne rather than replace the written off bike.

In a few days, I will post some pics of the later days of the rally and the accident. Just wanted to let you all know of the situation.

  2. Yikes, I am sure glad you are okay and hopefully nothing broken. Bikes can be replaced, you can't.

    Keep us posted.

  3. Good to hear that you are home and safe. Glad to get together with you at the Yacht Club. Does that mean that you are officially giving up motorcycling?
