Thanks for everyones kind thoughts...
Like Adam said in his blog... Visibility goes from clear to a dust storm...
Now I know why they post a 30mph when there is a dust storm...
Breathing is a bitch... contacts feel like sandpaper and all you can do is
troop though the nasty shite...
Good gear is worth every penny... Kevlar, armor and back protectors are a
definite must on a long ride. If I had my leather pants with the pucks I would
of cleared everything. Muscles, shoulders and knees feel banged up and sore.
Aside from that... the tequila and percaset does wonders for the pain.
Guess I've also been the nasty boy on this trip too...
2 tickets for $500us. Ducati-man at $360us with 4 tix and Fjr with one $250us.
We're still all having a great time and through the thousands of twisties I've
gone through it's been something I'm determined to do once again next year.
I'm surrounded by a great number of people I've been riding with so far.
They just keep getting better and better. If you are going to do something
in your life just once... This is one road trip that's a life experience.

ONG glad to hear you guys are all ok. Just managed to Instant Message with Ray a few words and I didn't even know there had been an accident 'till he mentioned it. I'm such a silly rabbit I even thought he was back in town!
:imwithstu

Take it easy guys and take care. Looking forward to seeing ya'all when you return, or when I return from Cali, whichever comes first. :)

Ray... glad to hear you're OK man. I went on my first group ride ever with you!

To the rest whom I've never had the pleasure of meeting, safe travels on the journey home and fast recovery to those with any injuries.

No more incidents on the way home, k guys? :D

Take care.

Really glad you came out of this fine, Ray and Mark. Get well soon.

Shame to hear that the bike is a writeoff Ray. It was quite a nice bike and you could tell that you really liked it. Going to get another like it?

Sucks to hear that even Adam's bike took a bit of a beating.

I spoke to Ray last night. He was upbeat and optimistic about the rest of the trip. It was so nice to hear that everyone is still having fun despite all the unfortunate events.

Ray - I hope you and Mark enjoy cruisin' around Vegas in the 'stang :thumbup I'm sure you guys won't have any trouble keeping up ;)

To Adam, Sonja, & John Valk crew - Have a great ride home and we'll see you guys when you get back. Take care.

we're in cedar city for tonight and tomorrow night.
we are going to continue on the trip with the others.

ray and i where finally able to get a car after 2, 3 hour return trips. it's hard to find a rental car down here and a "one way" car. we'll drop it close to the border, can't drive it across the line.

ray pulled some parts off his bike later and i took another look at my bike. photos, were taking to help identify all of my mods and for the insurance company...hope i'm treated fairly...it's hard to walk away from a bike that you've put so much time and $$$ into...but it was in bad shape.

also we headed to the accident scene....i found my credit card that i had ready cancelled...shit...tip..always carry a back up credit card when travelling.

we're having a great time.
wish i was on a bike.

Well then. Now that my heart's retreated from my throat, and my more immediate HO-LY F*CK shock has worn off, and my breathing has returned to normal, and my mid-grade worry-level is now in-check:

:flashy 1. Glad you guys are okay.
:flashy 2. Glad you guys are okay.
:flashy 3. Glad you guys are okay.

:cool Glad you're also in good company through your misadventures. That's obvious. ;) Enjoy every last minute of it cuz I'm preparing a lecture for your return. Ya might wanna' extend your trip longer than planned. :)
