Matt was involved in a motorcycle accident between Kingman and Flagstaff last week. Matt has been a friend to many, many airhead owners and has contributed monthly to the MOA magazine.

Details of accident.

Matthew was riding down I-40 east, headed for home. The wind blew him into a concrete highway divider on the side of the road. He slid along that as he tried to slow down. He then hit about fifty feet of open space. At the end of that was a guardrail. He hit the soft (soft being subject to interpretation) end piece. The bike flipped and Matthew was sent hurtling thirty feet through the air to land Face down. He broke four ribs, has a large hemotoma on his upper, inner leg, multiple bruises and adhesions from head to toe. He is in major pain. Our home address is 1129 West Pikes Peak Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80904. The bike is being taken care of. Hope to have him home in a couple of days. Then an EMT friend will take over for a little. Just glad he’s alive. Susanna Parkhouse

That's not at all hard to believe. The crosswinds can be brutal there. Poor Matt! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

On a lighter note: you can tell Matt deals with old stuff. Who still has an aol.com email address?
