I can only look at this unexpected happening as an absolute miracle. (Fate, divine intervention...whatever you want to call it) It was an incredible blessing that she was not on the back of that bike that day.



Lets hope Progressive takes good care of you and your ride.

Also want to let possumman know if his insurance Co. needs anything, I'm sure folks that were there would give the info they need.

MEGARMS had questioned why covered bridges have enclosed sides. I guess now we know why.

I felt like Progressive treated me well after my previous bike was totaled back in May of this year. I had full coverage on the bike and my gear and they made me an offer quickly and I felt it was fair. Though it seems like they have given up on figuring who exactly hit me. Maybe if they sort it out one day I'll reimbursed my deductible.

What did you do to yourself?! I think I need to peruse upthread. My wife was working at FMH this weekend. Could have had her check on you. Hope the MRI indicates all is generally fine.

Thanks to everyone who participated, and for understanding why we called it short. Really enjoyed meeting everyone. Had a really good lunch, post Frederick Memorial, at the Red Robin with Mrs. & Mr. Drakhen99, THier, and my friends Cris & Sue.

Any suggestions for future group rides as far as "procedure and manageability" goes, is welcome.

Ummm...Stoveman...Hope you take post #139 in the spirit it was intended.
Riding carries a risk, we all know that and accept it, we also know it's worth it. You managed to bring together a lot of us around a common passion, get to meet old friends and make new ones. You had a plan together before we left, the fact most of us are vets, first responders, or at least work to be self reliant and prepared, made it as safe as riding really can be. Soon as Stove and Possum went down, everyone not only jumped in to help, we had a plan, we had organization, and we had a lot of capable people that you brought together. The bridge was about as hazardous as it gets, all the non-skid was worn off in the center, it was slicker than snot because of the days worth of rain and algae soaking into the wood, and right at the end of a blind corner while most were still leaned over in the turn. No real way to predict that, and couldn't really appreciate how slick it was till I walked up to help out and damn near slipped on the wood when I stepped on it. Don't know when or where the next group ride is going to be, but I'll be there, and hope you are the man to lead it.

Well I finally don't feel like I was working part time at the WWF anymore which is the good news. The iffy news is that I have an MRI scheduled this afternoon, Doc thinks I have a tear in my left rotator cuff. Either way I will be GTG for the MDS Spring Forward motorcycle ride.

Insurance adjuster is supposed to be going out today to take a look. They will be taking it to Old Glory for repairs so there shouldn't be a problem on that end.

Stoveman & Possum, glad you guys are recovering. I would've posted sooner on here, but I've been sidelined with the flu or a really bad cold since Saturday night.

Raineman, you did a great job setting this ride up - I wouldn't hesitate to go on another ride led by you!

As for the response by everyone - the ones who blocked the road were awesome! Room to work and figure stuff out without having to worry about cagers running us over - wow!

For myself, I was right behind Stove and Possum, and watching them go down, I got on my brakes, gently, and slid a little myself, but their accident actually prevented a few more, in my eyes. I was honored to be the one to call 911 and coordinate that effort.

FWIW, Mrs. Drakhen had a heck of a time, and looks forward to the next ride, so good job guys! Raineman, she said your pacing was great for her, and it was very comfortable. She was happy to see everyone pitch in when the incident occurred, and Stoveman, she wants to hang out with Mrs. Stove next time

Oh, and one final thing: Glad I could keep you in [figurative] stitches, y'all!

-John
