    Kawasaki, on this forum, Kawasaki999 on Motoredbikes took a nasty spill yesterday while riding his bike. He is a local customer and a friend.

    He is at the bay front medical center in Tampa with 5 broken ribs, a punctured lung, a colar bone/shoulder break...It was an unfortunate mishap...the front tire literally blew out, and he was thrown to the pavement at 25mph. Thank god he was wearing a helmet!!!

    Show your support guys...He is a seasoned rider of motorcycles and motoredbikes. He has the best equipment...his bikes are outfitted with the best of everything. Things happen!

    Give him a call, send him a note...believe me he will be gratefull to hear from you!!!

    Bayfront (727) 553-7533 This is the direct number to Craigs room. Just tell him you're from the forum, and wish him a speedy recovery.

    Bayfront direct (727) 823-1234 ask for room 533...Craig Blough

    Sorry to hear of Kawasaki's accident, I hope he recovers quickly.

    I must say it's one of my biggest fears with these bikes is a front tire blow out. It just seems like one of the worst scenarios.

    HI Guys
    I spoke to Craig today and well, his spirits are good for a guy who is in a lot of pain. He might go home tomorrow but he is having problems tolerating the pain meds. He is looking at 6 to 8 weeks of recovery.

    Re: A good man and respected MB'er has taken a nasty spill

    So sorry to hear about Craig. Sounds like he had taken all the right precautions and still something bad happened. I always think safety first when I build these things, but there are always the freak accidents. I had purchased a 36 tooth sprocket for this last build, but that is out! I am sticking with the 44. I don't need to be going any faster than they already go.
    Hope you have a quick recovery Craig!

    It's not the speed that gets you hurt , it's that sudden stop that does!

    Hey Jim:
    what kind of tires was kaw riding on when his accident happened? Mtn. Bike or Cruiser? what size of tires? even with the best of equipment (safety gear , good parts) what kind of air pressure was he running? or did he happen to hit or run over something?
    Again sorry to hear about your accident Kaw, get well soon and god bless!

    Rest up my friend, if you wanna be positive, this could be that well earned break you felt you needed! Seriously, take it easy, keep eating the ice creams and you'll be tinkering in no time. Hope someone is printing these out for ya.
