"Shambles" needed stitches (and more) after my close encounter of the Buick kind in West Virginia back in June. Almost back on the road now. Leaving for the far west soon.

Classic left turn into the invisible motorcycle. I went over the hood and landed near where the ambulance is. Good gear and plenty of it saved the day.



I skidded to the right a bit so she hit the engine guard. Broke that and shoved it into the exhaust header and water pump.







Insurance company has finally started to send checks. About $5,000 total. That's like, what, four KLRs?

Stay calm, there's no threat of KLR replacement!

Had to find a UHaul truck. On a Sunday. In a small town. One that has no cell service.

A local woman hooked me up with the nearest UHaul dealer and the sheriff gave me a ride over there. That was a $635 drive home, but at least it wasn't a helicopter ride!

Hey, that's Marlinton! I been through there. Blink and you miss it.

Glad you made it out unscathed and able to drive home.

Guess the Buick driver was anxious to get a sub sandwich...

Looks like there will be a good turnout at Turkey Bay! If anybody wants my cell phone number, shoot me a pm. That way you'll be able to find the group, where we're parked, etc...
