Hope your OK !!!!!
I've been riding two wheeled engine powered for 60 years, started on a mini bike at 6 years old
I've thought the same, now I just stick closer to home, I love night riding but not a good idea for me and my night vision.
So I spend time fixing em up, thanks to you guys, OH, and the test rides are fun.

Glad your OK! Passing out while ridding is NOT a good thing.
It sounds as if some meds are wrong for you. I would start checking with a pharmacist on side effects and inter-drug reactions of what you are taking. Don't forget to list the over the counter supplements, as some have a VERY BIG negative reaction with some common prescription meds.

Oh-no!

Ben!

I'm so sorry for you. I can't imagine this happening again.

It seems you survived intact, and that's a blessing no matter what happened.

Glad you were able to post Ben! Don't blame ya' for not trying for a third wreck. Myself, after twice having T-bone accidents on the ST1100, decided 50+ yrs. riding was enough also. The Venturer still sits under bike cover in garage with tank and carbs emptied.

Hey Ben, motoman still makes the Colorado rallies. He's in a cage, but it's great that he's still there. Think about going just to see and BS with new and old friends.

I hope you and your Doctor can figure out what caused you to pass out. Hopefully it is easily treatable.

Agree with Ray's last statement, as that's what it's all about cept for the ride to and from

I am not sure I passed out beforehand..just that I have no memory of any of it...so I guess that's what happened.
in spite of my new helmet..I still got a mild concussion. Maybe that is the reason I have no recollection of what happened.

According to the tow truck driver..i left a skid mark on the road..that means i didn't pass out prior...but that a mild concussion contributed to my amnesia...
