Got hit by drunk driver
Not a particular good way to spend my birthday. Got hit by a drunk driver on Wednesday night. GTL is totaled. He came across the median. My buddy went out yesterday to find my phone and said the car was deep in the field, which means he was moving fast enough to clear a 3' deep ditch and keep on going. I survived with a smashed foot - worst injury the podiatrist has ever seen, he said. Right now, I look like i got in a fight with an R75 - spokes sticking out of my foot. Will have to see if I can take a look at the bike when I get out of the hospital. I'm assuming the two Clearwaters on the left side are gone. The side bag is in pieces in the road. Hoping that the Darlas and Billie are still good, as well as the RKA tank and rack bags. Really hoping my RDL isn't too damaged. I'm looking at about 6 months for recovery with a couple more surgeries. Looks like I won't be at the rally next year, unfortunately. Back to living vicariously through you guys!
