Unfortunate Event

Apologies upfront but I confused this site with the Hdforums site and thought I had a previous account here.

Yesterday My Air Force Vet cousin Randy Miller who Has been like a brother to me was in a tragic motorcycle accident while riding his Harley Road King in Northern NJ. He is currently in critical condition at Morristown Memorial Hospital and it will be a long road to recovery. He has suffered severe head trauma, many broken bones and collapsed lungs. He is currently in an induced coma while trying to stabilize his condition.
Thank you very much in advance for any and all support.

There is a gofundme site setup by his son to help him and his mom with the medical expenses as this I'm sure will be a big one. If interested in donating please pm me.

Photos of Randy below with myself and my mom and another with myself and my brother. First pic he is the one in the middle and 2nd he is on the left wearing HD shirt and 3rd pic is all of us riding.

First I want to say he and his wife and son have my prayers and I will help financially, BUT I have to say it sucks that you are only coming to this community to appeal to us as Harley riders and patriots for money in your family's time of need.

In return, I want to ask ONE promise from you- When (not if) he recovers, I hope he joins this community so we can show him more than just financial support. Can YOU help make that happen?

Below is original response before I realized I confused this site with hdforums.

I knew something like this would happen and totally not the case I am a long time member and have many posts. I have not been on the site in months due to work and when I attempted to log it it appears my account has been deleted or reset. All my bike photos, parts posts and ride posts are no longer part of my account. I can see how you would draw that conclusion but it isn't the case.

One of the mods can help you with that. If one doesnt see this and contact you, please get with one to get your identity here fixed and keep us posted on Randy's progress. Donation made and God Bless.

Thanks. While I was just trying to search for old posts i just realized that HDforums and this site Harley-Davidsonforums are totally separate sites. I have an account on hdforums which I am going to make the same post on. Sorry for the confusion.
I will absolutely keep everyone updated but it will be a long road I'm sure being he isn't even into day two since the accident occurred.

Here is the link for the same post I just made on hdforums where the account is that I Thought was on this site.

Your absolutely not a "sucker". It will be quite sometime before he is recovered just to the point to be able to acknowledge others in the room. Very bad situation. I will update the post as i get info. Check out my same posts on hdforums and Xlforums. I have been a member there for quite sometime just to give you a sense that I'm not new to the community.
