Re:Survived an Accident 7 Months ago  
Thanks Drumson and thank you everyone else. It was the Roadstar that I had my Accident. My wheels are mags and I got the TPMS from Tire Gard. I spoke to the person that installed my tire. I didn't ask him to change the Valve stem, I should have. From now on, its with every tire change. I also have metal 45 degree stems installed that have to be bolted on. Again thank you for the well wishes. No damage to me, just the protective gear I was wearing. Just sore as all get out and right hip is still really sore. But still very thankful I am alive !!!

I'm happy to hear your ok. You're a top notch dude and bad shit happens to good people all the time. Good to hear that it wasn't worse. Bikes are pieces of steel and paint at the end of the day. They are replaceable.

Glad to hear you avoided personal damage. I wonder if having the camper in tow actually helped stabilize the bike?

Re:Survived an Accident 7 Months ago  
Also glad to hear your ok. We old farts are pretty brittle and break pretty easy. Glad you were able to slow down enough to lessen the impact. I put a Harley down once when I was 19 and walked away with just bruises. If that happened to me today I might not fare too well. That was the only incident I have ever had on a motorcycle and the lesson it taught me to drive defensively has served me well over the the last succeeding 47 years.

Really glad your ok. I'm sure you'll be sore for awhile, but at least your not telling us this news from a hospital bed. Take it slow.
