(Admin Mod, I know this isn't a proper article - these are my words, not from a source article, but Allen West is beloved around these parts and the only updates on his status after his motorcycle crash are kind-of unstructured posts on his Facebook page.)
Allen West left the hospital today, got home, and posted a video thanking everyone for their prayers and well wishes.

I hate to say it, but he looks and sounds pained. Mega-prayers for his recovery.
Here are pictures of him heading home from the hospital earlier today:
Dang, talk about a nasty “road rash”!
Black people have keloids in their skin as I do I am Italian plastic surgery will still leave scaring he may heal OK naturally PRAYERS UP!! He looks damn good for being hit on a freeway!!
He looks pretty chewed up. Here’s wishing Col. West a speedy and uneventful recovery!
Even if he keloids up, it will only add rugged character...
Sucks to faceplant without a FF helmet.
After seeing a few accidents I kept with the full lid.
He is a tougher man than I, that’s for sure.
He’s lucky his teeth weren’t knocked out on the right side.
Lots of “Never Cycles” on this forum. But for all of us that do ride, this picture is indeed a reminder to wear “all the gear, all the time.” I have worn only full face helmets since 1970. Been down several times and never yet even scratched a helmet. But, so what? I’ll still be wearing a FF, like you, glasseye.
All the best to LTC West. A Patriot of the 1st Degree!
He’s going to need live in care or frequent assistance for a while, at least I would think so. Just putting a shirt on will be a rough experience.
Very true!!! There is nothing that could harm this mans appearance he is absolutely AWSOME inside and out!!!
Riding is a great feeling until its not.
Praise God this Patriot is alive and recovering.
To see him alive, walking, and standing tall is a miracle.
Thank God Col.West survived and will recover.
Prayers up for this man, a national treasure!
Get on and ride long enough, youll go down. Might be a person Turing left in front of you, a person backing out of a driveway, someone crowding you over, or a blown tire. Theres always something. Its just a risk you take to ride. Glad he made it through. Some do, some dont.
Ive done the face plant thing at 50mph, never so glad to have a full helmet and jaw shield. Suspect I would have suffocated to death from a jaw fracture. God Speed and Healing for him.
I read where his helmet was cracked or busted or something. Ouch!
