I finely noticed one of your threads on here Lee!! Just never saw the connection until you mentioned it on the Triumph site the other day.But now,I'm gonna have to warn everybody on here about you!! Your buddy ,Dave!!!You are very lucky. Several years ago a few of my mates were over from Australia doing the Route 66 ride on hired Harleys and the exact same thing happened, sadly the lead rider died at the scene, the next were a couple, the rider suffered brain damage from which he is still recovering, his wife had minor injuries and the rest were able to avoid the carnage. The driver of the pickup was never charged by police.
