I lifted this with Richard's permission from a Facebook post. The profit from this raffle really will help someone who needs it. And this post really hits on so many good points that I wanted to share it with everyone who may not know about Richard and his situation.
This raffle bike looks awesome! After all the medical and legal dust settles and I can move again I am going to rebuild my 1994 Sportster. I am hoping to do a lot of the work my self, the parts I need and the work i can't do myself will all be from Deep Six Cycles or Flying Chairs. In Deep Six's blog he mentioned that I might not be alive if I wasn't wearing a helmet. That is the truth, my full face helmet looks terrible. Even with a full face helmet, good boots, and riding gear I came out of this missing one and a half toes, 3 broken bones in my leg, a trashed knee, hip damage, 4 broken ribs, and a stroke. If your not happy with your safety gear shop for some that is more to your liking. My goffy safety gear saved my life! Even as bad as my leg got messed up, I don't think there would have been anything for them to fix without the gear I had on. I want to THANK EVERYONE for all the support I have been and am still getting. There are a lot of good people and a great comunity in Asheville, glad to be a part of it.
