Thank you for caring and helping. There still hasn't been any payout from the insurance company and likely there never will be any fruitful lawsuit, but the donations helped get them into a sustainable long-term living arrangement in a new apartment-like addition on the back of my parent's house.Just a quick off topic but very pleased your brother in law has improved so well. Kathy and I are happy to have helped out. Turned 71 this year and thinking maybe it's time I sell my bike. A 900 Lb Harley is a bit much for this old guy and I laid it down last year and some bones still hurt. Just real glad he is coming out of it all. Thanks for good news.
I'm glad you're ok following your accident and I am supportive of anyone's decision to give up riding. I try not to get on a soap box about it; it's sort of like the "trying to fight fire with absence of fire" situation I described with my daughter. Following my own motorcycle accident in 2006, all my friends who ride kept saying "you just have to brush it off and get back on a bike." Very few people said "it's ok to not repeat the mistake you just made." I don't know if this world will let one support not doing a thing, without being anti-that-thing. But that's where I am.
