Ric told me that some of you had heard about my recent accident and that I should check in here.
The story: Pretty simple. I rode motorcycles as well; specifically, I rode sport bikes. I was ridine June 1st in San Francisco where I live and a lady took and unprotected left. From what I can tell from the bike (I have no memory of it) I didn't even have a chance to hit the brakes. I hit her quarter panel and went flying. 100% her fault by her statement to police and witnesses.
Result: ICU for 2 weeks in coma, given 15% chance to live. Broke two top ribs on right, top rib on left, left shoulderblade, backbone T5, jaw in 3 places and lots of little cracks else where. I had a partial hemotoma in my right Carotid Artery and sever stretching of it which they were pretty sure was going to pop and kill me as that would mean severe loss of blood to brain. Also mt right Brachial lPlexus (all nerves to shoulder and arm) was heavily damaged and tore out of spinal cord at C7 and partialy at C6. Oh and a collapsed lung.
I spent 6 weeks in the hospital and 11 doing nothing. I get out of by back brace next week. The Carotid Artery is still questionable but they don't want to do a CT scan until October because of how much radiation I've already had. I take blood thinners to ward off a stroke. My right arm has been a challenge and I found that only about five surgeons in the US are experienced in fixing it. Once it is worked on, it will take about 1.5 years for my upper arm muscles to come back and my right hand probably never. I will never ride a motorcycle or be able to race cars again.
Anyway, thats the story. . . . nothing to do with foxes so I'lll add one thing. Jamie ya never got that fox I have in NY, SOMEONE should take it for parts and use that 16v
