BMW Riverside Owner - Accident

For those of us who live in So Cal and use BMW of Riverside, the owner, Dan Schoo, had an accident on his GS returning home from an 8500 mile journey. The accident occurred while he was taking the back way through the Desert south of Amboy approximately 150 miles from home. Like a lot of us - he looks for ways to avoid the Interstate. He had left that morning from Idaho Falls and may have fallen asleep, left the road, and lost control. Fortunately, someone was behind him and saw the accident and called 911. Dan was Air Evac to Palm Springs. I went by the hospital yesterday and saw Dan. He has some busted vertebrae and a few broken ribs, a lot of pain, but otherwise it looks as if he is going to be OK and not require surgery. According to Dan, “the bad news is he had the accident but was fortunate it occurred at the end of his trip rather then the beginning”. Dan is a experienced rider/owner of the dealership and a great guy.
