Many of you don't know Frank aka DodoGas, he was very active on Old Gas for many years, but as of late, has gone back to his first love, Bikes & Motorcycles. Last Tuesday he was riding his bicycle to his shop, and was involved in a bad accident. I don't know all the details yet, but these are the reports I've got from another good friend (Also Frank)

Friday - He's in tough shape - banged up, some major cuts - but worst of all really bad skull fracture(s), he's being watched closely, will be CT scanned again today (as he has been since the accident) watching for bleeding and swelling on the brain. He is awake, but unable to recognize anyone or even know who he is - and has 24hr supervision.

Saturday - He's stabilized but in bad sbape, Being watched closely, minimal response and high agitation. They're saying the next couple weeks will be critical to seeing how he comes back, Really messed himself up
