I finally got to meet Bill Bryant in person on the Gypsy Run . During the course of the run I got to talk with Bill several times and just hang out and shoot the shit. As always the Gypsy Run was awesome and getting to meet and talk with Bill made it that much better for me.
On the 3rd of August, 2013 while on R4YL. We were riding in southern Ohio and I was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident which almost killed me. As a result of the accident my right leg had to be amputated above the knee and I had a shear injury to the corpus callosum (the broad band of nerve fibers joining the two hemispheres of the brain) as a result of striking the trunk of a tree with my head. Luckily I was wearing my Biltwell Hustler because if I wasn't I wouldn't be here writing this.
Now that the winter here in New York has finally ended. I am going to be backing ride again. I emailed Bill to tell him I was going to buy a new helmet to replace my Hustler and I wanted a Bonanza and that I would like to buy it directly from them instead of one of their dealers.
Bill asked me what size and color and wouldn't take any money for it. The new Bonanza was here in less than a week and it is a perfect replacement. So to reiterate something that most of you already know, Biltwell is not just a great company, but great people.
