Default Shaketown Dave

Dave Werner who is sometimes on the forum had a major crash on his bike early today. He is touch and go right now. He is a disabled Navy Veteran who was on the Rivers in Vietnam. As far as we know he has no immediate family for us to contact and he really loves Drag Racing and enjoys this Forum. Keep a good thought for him.

I'll pray for him.
I seen him post many times but have not had the opportunity to meet him in person. God willing, he'll pull thru this.

Folks, I just finished speaking with Roger. I'm not going to go into a lot of detail now.

As he said, our friend Dave is in a really bad way. We'll relay further information as Roger passes it along.

Hope and pray for what's best for Dave.

I just saw the notice posted over on Yellow Bullet. I am really sorry to hear this. A humble, gentle prayer for this good man. I knew he is a Viet Vet and I always have special respect for those people. Dig deep, Dave.

Yes....I appreciate you asking.

Roger says...

Dave is now in an induced coma. They are working to reverse building pressure on the brain.

Next of kin have not been located.

Roger closes with this... "We can only wait and see what is next. Keep talking to the GUY upstairs and see if he will let us have him for a little while longer if he can be whole again."
