Anyone who visits or has visited 'Wildguzzi' will know Wayne Orwig. Well he got 'U-turned' by a druggo yesterday on his Stelvio, he's pretty beaten up but by all reports his wife Vicky is in a worse way.

I've met them both in person and they are 'The Business'. Top folks. They are also good friends of Bill's so keep them in your thoughts and be bloody careful!

They are in our thoughts Pete. Don't know them , but Wayne comes across as a real nice bloke on W.G.
Always seems it's some arsehole that causes an accident like this , at least within the Guzzi crowd. Rarely do you hear of the rider at fault.  
Like Pete says , stay safe, be vigilant guys

Thanks, Pete.

It's a dangerous sport we love so much.

Hard to imagine a more competent rider than Wayne, yet ...

I read once that every accident -- even those "not your fault" -- is avoidable.

Well, yes, I suppose, if you stay home and knit by the fireplace.  No

BUT, you need to avoid the pointy ends Bill. Don't get out of bed will also do it.

Bugger that, we do what we do because we like to. Hazards are all around us, so we need to deal with them one by one. Sometimes all the best planning/training etc leaves us in a less than desirable position. Me hopes they heal just fine and dandy, and in quick time too!

Bugger the knitting Bill, if I don't stab myself in the eye I'd sit on the darn thing ................. and get a little arsenic.

Looking for a new Gee Gaw now , a couple of small daytime Lights might help the vision impaired to see me. I think Bill did this Gee Gaw upgrade a while back. Anything to help the retarded to see me. We should all take a lesson from this tragic thing that has befallen the Orwig clan .

Wayne's Stelvio looked like the Battlestar Galactica by all accounts. You can't fight drug-fucked shit for brains. I agree though, conspicuity good. Paranoia better!

This! Wayne's bike is lit up in the front and he's one of the safest riders I know too. You just can't prepare for drunk, high and stupid.

While I support legalizing marijuana, I have no doubt that it has resulted in more impaired drivers, at least here in California. In particular, I've noticed an outbreak of young people driving like they are very old people, slow and oblivious. Riding this time of year was already too perilous. Be careful all. Back off the speed a bit and embrace paranoia.
