Twisted Wrist - Show 29

The Twisted Wrist Show 29 for June 23, 2007.

Comments to or 1(206)20-BIKE-8.

You host learns how to fly the hard way, losing his bike, and nearly his life, in the process.

Two corrections to be made:

1. The car was a Nissan, not a VW.
2. It also looks like I only went 15 feet, not 50.

N.B. That's why I'll take one ounce of hard facts (photos) over eye-witness testimony (me, the victim) any day.

We miss you here at PAB! I hope you are on the mend soon. Thanks for sharing this. Yes, thank goodness you weren't going faster.

Take care. My best to you and your family.

Thanks Connie. I hope I mend soon too. I wish I'd made it to PAB, I wanted to chat with all my podcasting friends.

Wow, glad you're well enough to post! I haven't listened to the show yet, but I'll be popping it on now. Good timing on getting the new gear, eh?

I recently heard you say on one of your shows that you like the obstacles street riding offers. I'm curious if you still feel that way :D

Best wishes on a full recovery, good insurance payout, and a happy new bike.

Dude! Sorry to hear about your accident. As I listened to the beginning of the podcast I had a very bad feeling. Glad you are OK.

You've got a dedicated listener now, anyone who will do a podcast from the hospital is hard core in my book!

Don't rule out a BMW GS if you're thinking about the KLR.

Wow. Timothy, hope all is well with you. Get better soon. You made me realize that I need to change my riding habits. I ride a Harley and plan on riding with at least a three quarter helmet (instead of my brain bucket) and my Joe Rocket jacket (instead of just a t-shirt) from now on.

Tim -
Good to know you are still with us and still keeping it on two wheels. Are you keeping the bike to see if you can rebuild it? How does bike insurance work in Canada? Hopefully you recoupe your losses (bike, jacket, helmet). My best wishes to you and your bruises.

Sorry if this is too personal, but what nationality is your wife? I couldn't help but notice her accent.

Very glad you made it through relatively unscathed. Sorry about the bike, though. I have been listening to your podcasts regularly and still have the one on my media player that you recorded on the road (crossing the international bridge). I will be looking forward to hearing of your next bike adventure.

Tim, long time, no talk but I'm so glad you survived this thing. All the best and get well soon man.
