Hello All, this is Linda from Langey. My buddy gixxerboygenius posted on May 9th about my accident. I want to say a heartfelt Thankyou for all the support. Even though I ride a 2000 Heritage I think you'll like my 3 rules for life.
1 - fast is good
2 - size matters
3 - do'nt ride like a girl
On May 3 @5:30pm I was west bound on 72 Ave when a full sized Dodge Ram Van was given space to turn left from 199 St. The east bound traffic was bumper to bumper so they gave her space to pull out & instead of creeping out & looking, she boots it!!!! I lock it up trying to swerve to the right but there's a telephone pole in the way. My left side slams into her passenger door. I fly off the bike bouncing on the ground. I end up on my back with my feet at the base of the telephone pole. The emergency crews were awesome. My left ankle is "shattered to smithereens" as the surgeon says and I have a broken right Clavicle. Lawyer? You bet. I work as an Insurance Agent & would never let ICBC "look after me" Check out slatervecchio.com
The bike is fixable & I'm a tough ol broad. I'll ride again. I guess skydiving for my 50th this August is out?
Thankyou again, it does'nt matter what you ride.....you ride, that's what matters.
