Prayers from here. Hope for a full recovery. I just wish my loved ones would give up the bike riding, too. Way too many folks that are dangerous out there that should not be driving at all. Even if you are an expert rider, you will have no chance against a sudden idiotic move by a moronic driver. Even when I was driving small sports cars (usually painted red) I had many close calls. The other driver would look right in your direction and then proceed to pull in front of you. Several of my family and friends have had recent close call while on their bikes. A couple of them ended up in the hospital.
Thanks, I'll get off my high horse now. Steve K.

Hi All, A while back Luke Walker was badly hurt in a accident, A web site has been started if any one is interested in helping.
He lost his right leg ultimately, but his cognition is dramatically improved- I hear he is doing simple math with his daughter and recalling names, places.
here is a link to the site http://lukewalkerfund.com/
thanks Tim
