    Exclamation BeemerDons

    BeemerDons was in an accident. The post below is from his local club:

    The following was reported on the AZ Beemer forum.

    Hi All,

    I just got a call from BrianB. Seems that DonS crashed today while riding Castle Hot Springs Road (CHS). As of this posting (7:30 PM Sunday 2/15) he is in surgery to repair a broken shoulder and get gravel removed from his torn-up knee.

    How did it happen: The story goes that Don overcooked a turn and got caught in a berm.

    What's next: Tomorrow, Brian will retrieve Don's bike which is currently on the west end of CHS - the end closest to Wickenburg

    How can you help: DonS will need some visitors and some cheer! Please reach out to him with your condolences via phone and visits, and be sure to send some healing aids such as reading material, hospital contraband and strippergrams. (At this time I don't know how long Don will be in the hospital.)

    Where to find DonS: West Valley Hospital - 13677 W McDowell Rd, Goodyear, AZ

    For more details, visiting hours, and such, call the hospital at 623-882-1500

    Best wishes to DonS for a speedy recovery and to his family that they get all the help and support that they need!

    UPDATE:

    At the last update, yesterday Don underwent surgery on his knee to remove imbeded gravel and repair a ligament. He will have shoulder surgery in the near future to replace the socket and other fixes. Long term outlook is optimistic for future riding.

    It appears he was infact dirt riding and came off at under 30MPH. Old guys no longer bend before breaking, they just snap evidently.

    Damn, never good news. Don is in my prayers. I'm praying for a speeding recovery, health, and a new motorcycle!

    If Don gets bored in hospital he can call me and I'll harass him some... You know, just for fun.

    Darn it. Sure sorry to hear of the accident and sure glad that it wasn't worse than it was.

    Wishing him a speedy and safe recovery.
    Ride Well

    He is back to posting over on the FJRForum and is taking physical therapy and seems to be on the road to recovery. Results of mental agility tests that were administered are a closely guarded secret.

    Here is an example of one of his recent posts over in FJR land.... "Mary, I'm just having one more pint with the lads. If I'm not home in 20 minutes, then read this meeage again."

    Could be the "pints" or could be low voltage auto-correct

    I hope BeemerDons is reading this or will soon

    I corresponded with you briefly last year asking for some phototherapy from the Hannigan Meadow get-together for an AZ ex-pat, and you graciously filled the bill.

    Here's hoping for a speedy and full recovery, and I want to hear no more of that, please.

    Regards,
