>Rider Down! Justin Seriously Injured.
We crossed into El Salvador two days ago and were on our way to see an acquaintance at his bar. As we were passing through an intersection, Justin was hit by truck. We got him to a hospital and paid off the cops to keep him from getting in trouble. El Calvo rides south...
An update on Justin, we are with him in hospital helping with the recovery. justins parents arrived today, and will begin the process of finding out how to get him home to oregon. We have the bike stored at another ADV riders place here in El Salvador and could use some advice on how to ship it home.
Thanks to everyone for their donations, it is really heart warming to see the support! A huge thanks to El Cavo (Bryce) for handling everything on scene and at the hospital. Chris thanks for your posts, we hope to see you in Nicuragua in 10 days or so.
Hi user "pbekkerh" I would like to clear up your confusion as you have made some assumptions such as "strange".
Justin is a passionate motorcycle rider and has met many people on this trip. Including 15 other riders that where on the mazatlan ferry. We are all trying to help him out from different locations. All of us are spread out some in Nicuragua, others in colombia. The posts you quoted are from two different riders. One that was on scene at the accident and another friend that is in Nicuragua.
There is nothing strange about this, a fellow motorcyclist was injured and everyone is there to help. Two nights ago we had 5 fellow adv riders all at the hospital to support Justin. If you were in the same shoes I think you would expect the same. Keep your insensitivties to your self.
The weather has finally turned, so Gear Up for your motorcycle travel adventure! Take 30% off the Achievable Dream - Gear Up! 2-DVD set until June 30 only.
Which bike, how to prepare it, what else to take, how to pack it all in! 6 hours!
