Wow. Scary accident. Glad he had all his gear on as it sounds like it could have been much worse. I've never met Howard but from what everyone's saying it sounds like we need more people like him. Wishing him a full and speedy recovery.

Default Update on Big Maico393

Hello Folks,

Howard had surgery (4th) and hopefully the final surgery on Thursday late afternoon on 6/14/18. I spoke to him on Friday and he was doing surprisingly well. He has become accustomed to pain and has a good mental attitude. His road will be long, but "The Return of Big Maico393" will happen. I did not see Howard over the past weekend, but will make an attempt to see him this week. He cannot bear any weight on his left/foot/leg for at least 90 days.

The accident was just that an accident - freak thing! Howard is very skilled and historically cautious when he rides. As bad as this accident was, it could have been worse - much worse. Thankfully Howard will be with us for year to come.

I would like to say that Howard had ALL the necessary safety gear on for the type of riding most here on ATM do. The gear Howard was wearing may likely have prevent a premature fatality. Please wear your gear when riding. An accident can happen to any rider - regardless of experience.

I know Howard would like to hear from some of you long-time ATM'ers. He has his cell phone with him. Please call his cell number if you have it. If you would like it, PM me and I will coordinate through Howard to determine if he can take calls.

Thank you for the well wishes and Prayers.

All the Best,

Mike Berg

I’m glad he’s on the mend! A long road ahead for sure and I’ll keep him in my thoghts and send along something helpful. Accidents happen, to everyone not just dirt bikers. We do like to play a little closer to the edge though
Thanks for the update mike

Hey guy’s

I’m no longer in the Hospital, I’m in a sort of rehab. Can’t do a full 3 hrs of rehab.

Look’ s like the plan is 18 days of lite rehab to build up my strength & then see where I go next.

Full rehab or home with rehab coming to the house.

Thanks for the well wishes & prayers!

Phone # to my room is 936 442 6916
