Default Geezer totalled!

I just got an email from the guy who bought my HOG.

30 days after he got it, a broad in a minivan swooped across three lanes of traffic and drilled him.

He said he bounced about 25 feet. No helmet. He's got major scrapage but he's ok.

The Glide is totalled. He sent me pics. The fiberglass is shredded and the chrome is scuffed off.

My old friend is dead.

We mourn with you Buz. But we are happy the buyer survived with little by way of boo boos.

Sorry to hear that. It's like losing an old friend.

Glad he made it okay.

No hat? Craziness.

It's a good thing you sold it before the wreck happened.

What was the Geezer's name?

That's what I was thinking. Good you got rid of it when you did. Sad, I know, as she took you on many a happy mile.

I raise a glass in her honor!

Too bad he didn't have some of that reactive armor like the English tanks have. Would have been nice to blow that mini-van to pic-a-part hell after hitting the geezer. Oh well. Gods speed 'lectra Glide.

Rough break, I know the feeling. Seeing my Trophy spread across 20 yards of I-5 was like a kick in the nuts
