Glad you are both ok. Friend of mine hit a dog once heading home from a ride. Was getting late afternoon when the group she was with stopped for a rest break. She decided to put on all her leathers, 20 minutes later hit the dog. Says the only reason she'll get back on a bike is she dont remeber leaving the last stop, or the next 2 months. Left the hospital 6 months after the wreck. Glad your friend was in a car ahead of you, and he is ok.
