He communicates with signs and gestures. He's very expressive, it's actually not that hard to understand him. He also showed me a bunch of pictures, maps and articles that chronicled his journey.

Last year he was hit by a truck in Illinois and suffered a broken pelvis and other injuries. That laid him up for a while I guess, in addition to totalling his bike. Various rider groups and a BMW dealership in Illinois raised a bunch of money and got him a new bike. He pretty much makes his way around on donations from people. If you do a google search, there are tons of articles and forums on him out there.

That sucks, probably didnt hear the truck coming.. It's cool that so many people pitched in to help him.. I like hearing stories like that.. It would be interesting to see if any non-riders helped out..
