      @ Cat M - Haven't you and Marshall "busted" enough things lately?

    Big props to all you 909ers who made it out! Hope you didn't fry too much on the way home! Good to see you all.

      Good to see you and all the LA crew. We all had the best time ever.

  • Cat M

    Gotta say....going to a scooter event when you can't scoot was hard to do! But since I couldn't scoot I was able to hang out with all of you and meet and exchange info with many. And yeah, seeing so many different scoots was CRAZY FUN! So that was good. AND I am an English Beat fan, so I had to move & groove.

    And...just to keep you all informed, I do NOT have to have surgery(which was supposed to be today). Seems my severely broken arm decided to move into place and start mending itself....maybe the dancing helped! 2nd Surgeon to be amazed by my sudden mending of broken bones! Yesterday he set me in a full cast for 2 weeks. He also manipulated broken bone to even better alignment while cast was wet/soft...VERY PAINFUL but worth it for best mesh. MORE HAPPY PILLS! Anyway when that comes off, a partial cast for 3 more weeks as long as it heals ok. YAY!

    Great News! Just talked to Pikake... she had a change in plans and WILL be going to Amerivespa. She'll be trailering it out herself following Keith/Elaine/Me. She's not registered but did line up a room. Does anyone have info on if/how someone can register at the event? Registered or not, here some comes!

    June 27, 2013

    • Rick

    • Tito

      BTW. I keep meaning to post this. To all of my 909 friends, let it be know. By way of introduction. Here in The OC I have a small group of 3-6 that I ride with all the time. No MeetUp, just old school emails and text messages. Rick is the main cog of the group. Just rode with him and the group yesterday. He's a great guy and I'm sure you will find him to be a great addition to your group. He's an excellent and safe rider. As a bonus he does all of his own maintenance. He just added Dr. Pulley rollers in a futile attempt to keep up with my GTS. LOL. I'm looking forward to seeing all of you in SD. Take care of my buddy so that we can all ride together at AmeriVespa!!!

    ACCIDENT (2)

    i still have no memory after deciding to try and jump curb. last memory is looking down as i let go of handlebars.

    car who cut in front of me NEVER STOPPED. but witness stayed and gave statement. yay for that

    the day of accident was supposed to be last day of long term sub assignment for me, & marshall was heading to his teaching assignment in perris. both of us never got there.

    so far healing far ahead of what drs think possible. scratched corneas mending and can now see. 2 facial fractures mending on own in correct place. later today i go to one more dr to fix broken arm...yikes! that may "sting"

    unless broken arm surgery/mending derails us, we both think we are heading to Amerivespa as planned

    June 21, 2013

    • Steve M.

      Sorry you are going through all of this and stuck with the memory. Hope you get well soon.

      June 21, 2013

    • erich

      That is so tragic, the car kept going. I hope your recovery is quicker the Even the Dr says is possible. Sorry this happened to you.

    ACCIDENT (1):

    ok, typing with one hand......

    marshall and i left that morning together to hit our local coffee shop. we left there about 6:30. wasn't even down the road 2 miles when a car pulled in my lane not seeing me at all. nowhere to go, jumped median curb, flew apart from scooter. from that moment on have no memory until in ambulance. OUCH! marshall was behind me a bit when it happened and a sheriff was also close. in the medium i missed trees, sign posts, boulders and landed in bushes. WOW, AMAZING marshall said he couldn't see me but heard a moan. he says i was moaning "my scooter" over and over. he and officer both held me down so i couldn't try to crawl. i was trying to get to it AWWWW

    scooter was not as lucky as me.....it spun by handlebar many times then spun out into street crashing onto pavement, BUT oncoming cars were not hit. marshall says he saw me fly and scooter crash.

      Thanks Rick but SC is out of the way from Hemet unless I take Ortega but that adds 50 miles to the trip. I'm taking the 15 to 163 between 6:30 & 7am which should take about 1 1/2 hours 80 miles to Town & Country. Look forward to meeting you.

    To Nina & all-
    I'm not going down to SD until Friday am- I may try to leave very early & be there in time for the 9am King of the Mountain ride. As far as Sat. I believe most of us expressed an interest in the 9am
    Elves in the forest ride. So...how about some input here as to who's going on which rides.. Thanks & pray for Cat !!!
