Pony's missus here....

Pony hit a car on his way home last night and went down hard. He came up over a hill and there were 2 cars that had just had an accident and were in the middle of the road. He didn't have much time to react and hit one of the cars almost head on. As far as we can tell he probably went right over the cars because the bike ended up on one side and he ended up on the other side of them.

The bike is totalled... because it was dark we're not exactly sure of all the damage but the jugs are split, triple trees are busted and one fork leg is missing completly. I had the bike brought back here to the house, we'll get some pictures up soon.

Pony's very stiff and sore this morning. I think he's going to be ok, he's just going to be very sore for a while.

He's got a splint on his thumb/wrist for a possible hairline fracture, his left leg is wrapped up like a mummy in ace bandages to help keep the swelling down. At first everyone thought he'd fractured the femur because it was swollen, bruised and extremely painful, but it looks like it's just it's just a lot of internal bruising. I just finished cleaning up all the road rash and bandaging all that up. He's got a couple of broke toes on the right foot, so no matter what leg he tries to put his weight on it really hurts. I've got him all cleaned up, doped up and settled on the couch for now with strict orders to stay put until I get home from work.

We haven't been outside to look at the bike in the light yet. He'll probably kill me for saying this, but the only thing he cried about last night was that he lost the bike. We know he's very lucky to have come out of this with only some bumps and bruises. But for him, losing the bike is like losing an arm or a leg.
