Wow, what a great way to start of the new year. Riding down I-285 on his ST 1300 and a tire comes off a rv and hits him. Luckily, he only broke his collar bone and hand. He had his textiles on, so the road rash was kept to a minimum. He is pretty sore, but glad to be ok. Bike is totalled. Less than three months old.

damn that sucks. so is the driver of the motor home responsible? glad he's ok
I'm sure he is, but all the details are a little sketchy right now. All he remembers is waking up in the ambulance.

+1 Glad to here your Dad is okay.

A good example of why we should all wear all of our gear all of the time. You can be doing everything right and then by means outside of your own control still end up going down.:(

sorry to hear that man. Spoke to a buddy today. He wrecked his M3 last night. No drunk at all, late at night, it was damp out. getting off one highway and only another. The interchange is a tight, 270 degree right hander going up hill. At the top of the hill he gassed it. The rear-end pitched out left which pointed the car at a guard-rail. Damage down the whole side of the car. it was around 2am, IIRC.

That completely sucks; glad he is OK.

Man, big rigs and RVs and the like scare the shit out of me. I hate being next to them even in a car/truck. I never ride by them on the bike, I generally fly by them...sometimes waiting a second or two for a vehicle in front of me to get past them first.

holy poo!! Here's wishing him lots of familial support and a speedy recovery! Collarbones are a PITA, hopefully it's a simple fracture that won't require surgery. Like Miz said, PT is VERY important.. even after the doc releases you from "official" PT... have him do the home exercises too ;)

Glad that's all the damage that happened *whew*
