Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!
I'm healing up fast, but it still hurts when I sneeze ( well, don't do that!), and
600mg of "I-be-broken" every 6 hours help.
The gear preformed as advertized. Olympia Airglide pants and jacket that saved me from a lot more damage that a 30MPH field rodent hit could have delivered!
The photo's of the gear did not come out as I would have liked, as it wasn't all that torn up, I was tumbling instead of sliding.
Progessive is the best, they had a check at Sills that week to fix the GT, and the next week cut me a check for my pants, jacket, helmet, and boots!
All the gear has been replaced, and I did get my RF-1100 yesterday.
I put the hemet on and ran around the house to see if it will be less noisey than the RF-1000, which it seems to be true
. I think on a bike would be a better test, but hey, it was the best I could do at the moment!
Again thanks much!
