Title: 'O'
Post by: Frankie on October 24, 2014, 11:43:58 PM
Steve O whacked his motorcycle this evening. On rt. 59 a car didn't see him & they collided. He was released from ER around 10pm. His eye is a concern & fractured something in that area. He returns tomorrow for further conclusion. I'm not sure, but I think his only family is disc golf. I know!, he is a topic of conversation, but he is alone. I ask that one is kind & gives respect to his efforts. I think we are all he has.

Thank you for your kind words, Frank!

I just, FINALLY, joined the group today (9-4-15), so never read anything on the forum before.

T-boning a big SUV takes a toll on a guy. And his wheels. RIP a great, Royal Enfield.
Got my speed down to about 25MPH before the face-plant.
You're right. Never saw me before he pulled in front of me. AND STOPPED !!!!!
I walked away with minimal injury. Little that seems to be long term.
Police and firefighters amazed to see me up and walking.
Expected to find a body when they saw the crumpled Enfield.
Walked to the ambulance unaided. Being a thick-headed Norwegian has its benefits....
Still awaiting an insurance settlement.
Would have climbed back in the saddle right away if my eye wasn't swollen shut.
And I didn't hurt all over.
And I had something to ride.
Should be back in the saddle in a few weeks.

Didn't realize my old log in was still active after so many years of inactivity.
Surprised I still remembered the password.  Still not too much drain bamage I guess.
I've deleted OleO.
Back to being SteveO.
