Aintgotnun Motorcycle Accident

Greg called me earlier this evening and has had an accident. He sounded fine but looks like a bad broke left ankle.

He can correct me if I am wrong

5:07 pm CST
As I understand he was turning left and his left foot was not square on the board and hit the ground. His left foot was bent backwards and he knew something was wrong when he seen the angle of the foot.

He rode the bike to the side of the rode and eased it over and called for help. Transported by ambulance

9:44 pm CST

Another call on his way to the office to get some things to work from home with.

Left Ankle dislocated and two bone fragments and a plate needed to repair.

He still sounds great and I think I heard a surgery is scheduled for Wednesday.

My phone was running down and call was a bit hard to catch.

Thoughts and prayers for our friend.

Mike

OMG, I am so sorry Greg. My husband had to have a pin and plate
in his forearm some time ago. It's not a fun experience. Hope you
can have access to the internet so you can talk to us as soon as is
feasibly possble.
It has been a joy getting to know you and hope to hear from you
soon. God is with you and your family at this tragic time.

Nina

In honor to our friend Greg
Gotta love that NANNER SPLIT
And Snoopy too.

I can't wait to see how many posts there are and what they say when he's eating vicodin and drinking beer posting advice to all us newbies. I'm thinking maybe I'll take his new "tricks" like a grain of salt for a while.

Of course, Greg, if you'd like I could come on down and do the Major Payne technique and make you forget all about that pain in your ankle.

I replaced my boards with ther Kuryakyn Boards and was very happy with the grip/roominess. Highway pegs on the crash bar help too.

Talked to him again last night and he is in pain and bored. He does have surgery today on the ankle and I will try to get another update tonight.
