    It was a rough year and we are both very fortunate to be here. Motorcycles have been part of my life since I was 5 or 6 and most people don't understand how i can still get on one after that. My wife stayed off em for a few years but she still enjoys riding. Lots of lingering aches and pains but swimming and yoga help. We are planning on the Cortez run and I am looking forward to putting a face on some of the people here. One of many glamour shots I have. Yes, wore a full face helmet but they don't save all at 60mph.

    Short version of worse day of my life 30 years ago. Let friend drive my new bike, I on back. 4 lane 35mph. Approaching stop light controlled intetsection we knew light be green when we got there so slowed bit then right to speed as it went green. Elderly woman waiting to turn left did not see us, we collided mid passenger door. I flew 30 feet, my friend slammed shoulder into car roof suffering near death injuries. Woman continued to drive several hundred feet till witness made her stop. She was cited for failure to yield right of way, her minimum insurance paid max, she owned basically nothing and only S S income. I did not know my friend did not have motorcycle license so I got ticket for allowing him to drive. My insurance paid max. The hospital filed papers with the court to force me to pay his bills
    Lawyers and bankruptcy only cost me around $5k
