Well early this morning (7/4/19). Out for a ride. Old lady with her granddaughter ran the red light and clipped me on the rear motorcycle side of my Gear-Up. Spun me around and my sidecar fender smashed into the suv on my right. No broken bones thank God. Went to E.R.Did ekg and xrays.Looks OK but wants a follow up chest X-ray in three months.Bike rolls with clutch in but won’t come out of Gear.rear wheel bent. Could have been much worse. Have claim in with ladies Ins.Co. Calling Holopaw Gene tomorrow to bring my rig over for evaluation. Be careful out there. A 4th. to remember...

Good Grief Marty. You were lucky.
I didn't ride any of my bikes yesterday even locally. Too many nut jobs out celebrating like it's New Years Eve and then taking to the roads after.

Had a pretty mellow Independence Day....stayed close to home and listened to semi-nearby neighbors light off their legally bought but illegally used fireworks...such is the law in the Stoner State of Colorado. Pretty sure gun fire was involved too (I'm pro-gun but the idiots doing the shooting apparently don't understand how Gravity works)....oh well.
