I am super depressed and glad she is ok. My klr is for sale.
We are going to wait for her to get comfortable and do a trip across the US in the car.
Very sorry to hear about your tragedy. This is something any rider can experience and maybe has, the chance we take for follow our dreams.
Must say that I am very sad you did not get the experience what you sought and I have have lived traveling over 160,000 miles on two KLR's. Much of this done two up with full gear and camping. This may sound insane, but I do hope you can get back in the saddle maybe riding two up to obtain the experience you had planned and dreamed about.
Best wishes and I hope you have a speedy recovery and get to peruse more adventures together, no matter what the are.......
