We are back a little early. Bad riding condittions put John's bike off the mountain in Maggie Valley the first day we were there. He suffered a couple of broke ribs and was shook up quite a bit. Laurie and I had just completed a sweep back and John hit some gravel and he did not make it. We praise God that he was not hurt worse. We rented him a car and he drove back to Gainesville the next day. Laurie and I continued our trip and we did 1546 miles and also experienced the Dragon (what a rush). We had no problems during the rest of the trip. John is OK and wants another Goldwing ASAP. What a trooper.
