Default Kind thoughts for a friend down

     

Last friday a friend of mine, Bill, wrecked a quad while jumping on a trail. he took it over a bank and tore every ligiment in his knee. Luckly we have a very good emergency response, I would like to thank the parametics and firemen, they all were great. Within an hour of him wrecking in the middle of nowhere we had him loaded in a 4x4 pickup on the way to the ambulance. Tomorow he should be getting out of the hospital. He will need extensive surgury though in the next few weeks to follow. Any kind thoughts anyone would like to pass on would be much apriciated.
Thanx

My prayers that he will get back to 100%.
Recovery is a total bummer but the next ride is GREAT!

Oh, jeez! That is a bad pain. I had a friend last summer who I had ridden with most of my years riding and I rode with him more than anyone else. He hit a ditch that was 5 feet deep and he was in 5th gear almost topped out. His bike stopped immediately and fell down so that it was vertical His knee caught on the handlebar as he went flying almost 10 feet He wrecks all the time and does all kinds of freestyle stuff but he just tore a few ligaments and this was the first time I had seen him in any pain that lasted more than 30 seconds or so.
Tell your friend I hope he gets better as hopefully all of us do

Thanx everyone. He is planning on getting back on when he is able too. Which is pretty kool. It is very disheartning to watch your leg dangle though.
