Our Hero Meese!

Anyone heard anything on Ken Meese and his injuries? (Meese on the board here)

He was kicking all kinds of ass in the Iron Butt Rally, but wrecked on Hwy. 50 and was airlifted to Reno.

I don't have his number, or his wife's or I'd run up and see what I could do for them and maybe cheer him up if I could...

Link to info is here...

If anyone has any info please update us.
(or might have his wife's #, please shoot me a PM. )

I apologize in advance if this is already posted here, but I didn't see it anywhere...

After I posted, I found him. He sounded great and is doing well!

He has plenty of support in Reno, so all is well!

I'll let him tell the story (his laptop is fine, so when he's up to it he said he'll post a little something...)

XMangnaRider posted a link to his wife's blog on the "Bike Talk" forum on this site. Here it is: link.

Seems it was an animal strike that took him out.

He's doing well for the circumstances and will probably be shopping for a new Yamaha FJR1300 when he gets up and running again. Seems they are far more bulletproof in that endurance rally stuff, unless the BMW Mothership puts their money where their 'reliability should be' and sponsor him with a new K1600GTL.

"You listening corporate?"

Get well Ken. Not the news I was expecting when I read up on the IBR. I sent a quick email to Dayle just this morning.

Massive positive Karma and good thoughts your way. As we all know, you're one of the decent fellows around these parts.

I too think the replacement bike should be a K1600GT...
