    Pete's war wounds

    Hello Pete's fellow bikers, this is his wife, Toni. Just thought I'd share a pic of Pete about 2 days after this horrifying incident. Remember always to wear your helment and any other saftey gear, you can NEVER be to safe!

    Holy bejeezus! Can you say"OUCH!?" I hate it when we get all mangled up and someone will say "it could have been worse", but you are damn lucky my friend...You hit that cement hard! I wear a full face helmet. I may look like some hard core downhiller (which I'm not) and absolutely rediculous when I'm crawling up a hill, but I feel a whole lot better with a full face in place.

    That looks very very painful and I wish you a speedy and full recovery...

    I've got two scars on my left knee from past crashes, and my wounds were never that bad! That is scary! I hope the tosser who did this is really made to pay!

    Pete,

    I am sure if you could get your hands on that fellow, he would look much worse than you.

    Oh, wait...love thy brother.

    So, we finally get to see what the REAL Pete Clarke looks like!

    Seriously, looks bad, but I'm glad to see you're up and around in spite of it all. Get back on that bike and ride!!!

    PS - how did the bike make out through it all?

    Pete: Get well soon!

    Toni: Thank you for the posting. Take good care of Pete. Psychologically, my 1976 collision with a car (concussion, facial lacerations, broken clavicle) was harder on my wife than on me.

    WildHare: Tell me more about your full-face helmet. Are there any particular models to consider or to avoid? (I suddenly feel motivated, for some inexplicable reason.)

    I swear, my first reaction was surprise that he wasn't blue, with a cute little top knot and a gold earring.

    I'm also pleased to see trees in the background, instead of ventilators and IV racks and other medical paraphernalia.

    Take care, Pete. Get well!
