Jeff was riding deep in the outback north of Terlingua near "top of the world" and the front washed out on his bike and it slammed down on his right leg.
after four hours they finally got him to Alpine hospital where it was found that he broke both bones in his lower leg pretty badly.
as of right now he is on a air ambulance on his way to a orthopedic specialist in Odessa.
he could use a few prayers if you can spare them.

Sorry to hear it, but it is at least good that we can hear it from you directly! I hope the recovery goes well and quickly without too much nagging by non riding friends ;-)

Orthopedic Dr said it looks like three pins and a rod.
But they are going to do a cat scan first to check before surgery.
So I'm waiting on that.

Hope you heal up soon! You know out west when a broke leg was there, the cowboy pulled out the gun to shoot the animal, just saying :)

Sorry to hear about your accident. Wasn't too long ago I was there, albeit not as severe as yours. I guess the bright side is you're going to be healing over the lousiest months of the year.

Hang in there!

Out of surgery now and was able to eat. Surgery went well.
Get a better report after the DR visit in the morning.
He was on the DR400.

Three pins and a rod sounds like the way one of those "walked into a bar" jokes. Sorry to hear about the accident but hope you are doing better soon. Needless to say it sounds like you won't be doing any top rope wrestling moves in the future..

Since they could do a rod, he will be able to weight bear sooner than a very high or low break. So the recovery will not be as bad as it could be.

As it's been said, follow the PT religiously.
I'm 26, had the same break 10 years ago, it is alot worse than it should be due to me not doing the proper pt.

Just seeing this. Must not have been paying attention. Sounds like it's all done except the PT and recovery now. Best of luck on both.
