Long story short, last July I left work, woke up in the hospital, and found out I'd been going straight through an intersection when a lady waiting to make a left turn decided she'd waited long enough to make her left turn. It's why I've been AWOL for a while.

I've spent the last seven months living with my parents while I recover, and as of yesterday, I've reached my primary goal: a Harley-Davidson FXDL. That first ride was one of the most satisfying moments of my life; I hate to toot my own horn here, but I'm pretty proud of myself considering they were afraid I wouldn't be able to walk.

Beautiful bike Dean. So glad to hear you survived and are able to ride again. I had wondered about you. So many folks join, are really active for a while then just kind of disappear. We don't normally find out what happened to them. Take care of yourself out there.

After this, I absolutely will, thanks!

And I'm sorry I disappeared like that. I did have Internet access, but I had enough on my plate that that went on the backburner for a while.

Thanks, guys! I can't describe the feeling of taking that first ride.

And Eye, believe it or not, that song was playing on TV the first time I turned the tube on after I signed the papers.

Thanks, you too! You know, it's funny, when I got back from the test ride, I told everyone it was the wind getting into my helmet and past my glasses. It had nothing to do with wind, and that's all I'm gonna say about that, heh.
