I posted recently about my daughter getting her first bike. My son, Tim just completed the BRC at the local HD and received his bike license last Monday. Wednesday we rented a Sporty and spent the day riding. On our way home from the dealer after turning in the Sporty, he rode my wife's Street Bob home; we took it slow and stayed on the back roads. About half way home we hit a high hill; one of those sharp peaked ones that you can't see over and it had a left hand curve as you crested the hill that you couldn't see prior; I was in lead doing about 35MPH in a 50MPH zone and he was about 200 feet behind me. He took the hill and apparently the turn surprised him. He went wide, hit the gravel on the shoulder; paniced (new rider error) and went into the guard post (cable and pole type) and over the bars. Broken rib, 13 stitches and in the hospital under observation for possible internal bleeding. They are scoping him and hopefully he will be released today. He was wearing a helmet. Not that it really matters but the bike may be totaled; it is being evaluated by our Indy. Progressive has been really good so far. Mother is a wreck; she was following in a car; thankfully she didn't see it happen but rolled up on it. He and she are both EMTs. Nothing like looking in the mirror and watching your son take a spill... What was the other thread: Zen moments you won't forget?
