David Zien, former Wisconsin Senator (from 1993 to 2006), a 2000 inductee in the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame who rode more than 1 million miles on a 1991 Harley-Davidson Sport Glide, was seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident on interstate 10 near Tallahassee, Florida.
According to news accounts, an SUV traveling in front of Zien attempted to change lanes, lost control and flipped onto its side. Zien, 59, was unable to avoid the overturned vehicle.
In the crash, he lost part of his left and suffered a broken hip. He was in Florida returning from Daytona Bike Week. My best wishes for a speedy recovery.
