I have mentioned my friend in numerous of my post he is my brother in law. We grew up together he was a friend long before he became my brother in law. We both had bikes years ago but got out of them years ago and raised our families. He bought his bike about 6 months after I got mine. Over the last 2 years we have ridden together a lot and taken vacations together for the last 2 years with our wives on our bikes. last weekend we went on a ride and took another friend and his wife along we went over to Arkansas and rode Hwy 65 down to Vidalia La. and spent the night then hit the Natchez trace and were riding it up to Kosiesko Ms. We had had a great ride we were at around 120 miles of the trace ride when the wife wanted to stop at one of the little stops and I was in the lead of our group I put my blinker on and we pulled into the little loop and were stopping in the middle of it when I heard the tires lock up and the crash. I looked back behind us and they were on the road. I dont really know what happened but my brother in law hit the back of the other bike and went down the other friend and his wife didn't go down but were very upset. I ran over to check on my Brother in law and didn't even know that he had hit their bike till later. My wifes sister had roadrash but was ok no broken bones or anything. But the brother in law wasn't so lucky. He is still in ICU after 3 days. He has 8 broken ribs with multiple breaks a puncured lung and a bruised brain. Luckily its not swelling. We got a call this morning that he had been taken off the ventilator and was breathing on his own for now a big improvement from the last 3 days. He is awake for the first time. Maybe he has turned the corner and is on the way back. Its bad to hear about someone you don't know going down but to be with a friend that does is a very disturbing thing and the 30 to 45 minutes till the ambulance arrived seemed like hours.
