Hi VTX Mom,
I been so busy with yardwork,pool,boats,cycle and work i havent tried getting in touch with you two to meet up for a ride sometime. Let me know if maybe this Sunday would work for a couple hours in the morning. I have to be home to watch the Packers.....oh boy,wonder what the replies to that will be lol. GO PACK GO !!!
Packers are ok in our house
Thats my husbands team since he was a youngin.. Thank you for the invite to ride this sunday, normally that would have been great! But the news in our household is not good. On Aug 5, a beautiful Sunday morning infact, we were heading up to Lake Geneva my husband, myself and our son along with 3 other friends/ 6 bikes in total. I'll try to make it short- my hubby was leading us, RT12 (NB) just north of 173. There was a guy in a truck at the stop sign, that decided he wanted to beat the SB car to make his left, unfortunetly my husband (Reid) was right there, He broadsided my husband. We all had to make emergency/panic stops to avoid hitting the truck
My husbands Right leg was crushed/severly amputated at the scene
) He has been home now for just over a week, yep 2 months in the hospital(s) and 6 surgeries. It sucks...
His bike is gone, but mine is in the garage awaiting another day to go for a ride
Oh, I'm not preaching but his helmet saved him from major head trauma/brain injury-- that would've been worse.
So please enjoy these few days we have left, check with us next year ok... don't forget us! And most importantly, Watch those 4 wheel a**holes... they're bad decision could ruin your life.
We have a wonderful family with our VTXCAFE friends/family, they've been awesome with there support.
