Tom, I'm glad that vid changed your lurker status. Thanks for sharing your story. Sorry about your dad as well. Motorcycles are the best therapy (for all tragedies it seems)--and it seems like you have a diverse enough of a collection to deal with anything that comes (or gets in) your way!

Even the thought of the track used to really bother me because I was incapable of doing something I loved so much. Though I'm still not ready for the g-forces of my S2000 again, I'm overwhelmingly pleased--even shocked--that I can handle the forces of the bike (turmeric and ginger pills to the rescue!).

I saw the photo early this AM. I thought I could hear the tell tale signature of knee puck on the ground in your video. NICE! Glad you're back to high-g sports. That feeling is so much fun.


Something about that feeling relates to snowboarding and high G turns and your fingers brushing the snow or surfing. Ah good clean fun!

Thanks for the comments. Yes I have a quiver full of arrows in the garage. Google - Why motorcycles are better than women...
