Well I hate to say it. But I cashed my vaquero on Tuesday on route home on my last day of my road trip to Montana and Idaho.
Accident happen on Tuesday 14 th at 5:30 pm about 35 km outside of Princeton. Was exiting a left hand down ward sloping turn at suggested speed of 50 km. I was just cruising home. And then I end up wide out of the coner and hit some gravel with my front tire and end up in the ditch. The bike and I flipped a few times. Bike landed at one point on my back. I was lucky that was wear my joe rocket jacket and brand new hjc helmet which I bought on Monday in Montana.
Some good people who were traveling east helped me until the ambulance came.
I was taking to Princeton hospital then airlifted to kamloops hospital. I have Fuk up my back with vertibre fractures in mid and lower back. Got a sore knee and that about it. Stuck in a hospital bed and totally helpless. Can move my mid body and in tons of pain unlike anything I have experienced ever before.
My bike and all most stuff is in Princeton and the Vaquero is most likely totaled from what little I could see.
Don't mean to announce this in a bad manner but just wanted my friend up on the forum to know. And wondering if any riders who passed by saw me and the condition of the bike.
It will take me sometime to recover. I don't know when I will get back on another bike.
