At the rally this year, we were approached by a gentleman who asked if we would be willing to sign a card for a fellow BMWMOA member who was involved in a very serious crash on his way to the rally.
We were told he lost control of his motorcycle in a curve and went into a ditch. While the motorcycle flipped into the air, some how the gas cap came off and the rider was covered in gas when the motorcycle came to land on him. Unfortuantely, the gas ignited and the rider sustained burns over 50% of his body and was transported to a hospital (burn unit) in Philadelphia where he is undergoing skin graphing.
I would just like to say that I'm praying for this family member and wishing him a speedy recovery.
