May 27th, 2006, while a passenger on a motorcycle sidecar James suffered multiple injuries during a practice session for the Isle of Man TT race, one of the most esteemed motorcycling races in all of the world.

James suffered multiple injuries in the crash at May Hill, including a head wound that required he be induced into coma in an attempt to prevent brain damage.

Send James your best wishes or words of encouragement.


James has regained consciousness and returned by medical escort August 24th, 2006 to the relief of all. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation at Laguna Honda Hospital in San Francisco, but it will be a long journey. He is responding to stimuli and will no doubt make a full recovery. The entire Bay Area motorcycling community is counting on it. See this pamphlet for instructions on communicating with James during visits.
