Lowside today

Pls keep Jeff Hansen in your prayers who had a lowside today outside of Leggett (Hwy 942).

Jeff is in hi viz & the pic was taken this morning where we meet in New Waverly.




The ambulance took him to Livingston & X-rays show a broken right arm. I believe he's being transported to The Woodlands closer to home. The bike is tweeked & probably is on its last leg.



If y'all remember in May, a car came into his lane & he had no where to go but down. Before this he had been riding for 30 + yrs (I believe) w/o an accident. The injury today is on the opposite side. The full face helmet did its job as well as the gear.

Let's hope he gets home tonight.

Re: Lowside today

Jeff was quite the trooper today. Handled the situation quite well. ATGAT was a key component in limiting his injuries. May your recovery be speedy so we can finish the Colmesneil ride another day.

Re: Lowside today

With the bike looking like that, I am so glad he was smart and had on all his gear. I will admit I don't wear my armored pants very often. Hope you heal quick Jeff.

Re: Lowside today

All the best for a full and speedy recovery, Jeff. I'm certainly glad it wasn't any worse. Crashing doth sucketh. Heal up and ride on.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Lowside today

Jeff you were in good company today. About 18 "professionals" low sided in Malaysia about the same time.

Heal up there.
