Get well soon Wheelie Boy!

You've got almost three weeks to get in enough shape to drive the chase vehicle ... I imagine you're a bit sore now but the bruises will all be gone by then.

Ease into the cage, set the cruise control ... you can do it!

Hi all,
didn't want to bring this up so I'll make this quick.
Was a mile or so behind him.
Out on HWY 58 in the roller coaster straight away, dust devils,(gusty high winds), his bike caught a littl air,(or the engine blew), went sideways in the air, he bailed, slid 500 ft., leathers and protection saved his life.
His leather jacket looked like a big cat clawed it to bits.
His helmet,(black),had the paint scraped off. He had bruses on his head from the pads.
Injuries: Concussion , dislocated ankle, broken wrist,(left), pinky pinned Permanently in place,(Left).
Will his ride again, Flocken A
Jeff
ps sorry I didn't call some of you... Its been a intense few days. jw

Update on Wheelie boy, .. and no, there was no wheelie involved.

He was released from the hospital today, after surgery on his hand yesterday.

I saw him this morning and he is bruised and sore but recovering well. A dislocated left ankle and his hand are the worst of it.

He is definitly happy to be getting out of the hospital.

He is lucky.....this kind of accident shows the reason why we wear what we wear....some people ask why and say that we wear ti just to play the part but to be honest it saves lives
JEFF-
Hope everything turns outs well and hope you feel better.

Ivan, Jeff- Please give him my best. I worried about him, but mostly from the wheelies. His abilities allow him to move at such a fast pace, a mistake has a bigger outcome for him than most of us. Hopefully everything heals and I'm just glad he had a straight road in front of him so he had room to slide.

If I can be of any help, please let me know.

I will definitely pass on your thought's and best wishes to him.

We (A bunch of ZRATED Riders) all talked at the hospital about the gear saving him. And he said if "I had stayed on "THE PACE"" ..... he would have ridden home on his bike and not a helicopter.

I know I ride outside the bounds of the Pace way too much myself...

... Gear and the PACE

Jeff will be up and riding sooner then you know...
and I will be very happy when we are riding together again ...
My bet is He will be ready, for the Triple Crown Yosemite and maybe for the Central Coast ride.

.... It is in the blood .. all of ours.

Too much talent

The truth will out!

Here is a shot of what Wheelie Boy was really doing - practising his water skiing!

Jeff's story details are best described using hand gestures etc... and will be told in San Diego.
The bike is very badly damaged and took exponentially more abuse than Jeff did. It is totaled.

I just talked to him. He is now back at home, in bed and still sore as hell. I have told him about all your messages and forwarded him your best wishes.

I will update you as I learn more.

ok, girls and boys~

the final info for the san diego leg is posted on the triple crown site:
http://www.bradzimmerman.com/triplecrown

you'll find gps files (garmin & exchange type), turn-by-turn route sheets and printable maps.

if you haven't already talked to me about going, you really need to hit the triple crown page and send me an email.

wear clean socks, and (for those of you who have it) some underwear.....there are some new people going.

since it's their first time, we don't ask.
they'll figure it out in time for the next ride.

are you applying for the inspector position?
