I have the same issue, but you need to sell the idea that we cannot change them so they cannot change us....I mean desert racing is part of our characters, right?

she doesnt want me to stop racing - she wants me to stop crashing



and I agree. I dont want to go through that again.....my pace will certainly be slower for awhile till I get stronger and haul ass again. I was just getting the hang of those starts too...

Yeah crashing is overrated big time.

I have decided to stop crashing completely.

Freakin whippersnappers.

that's awesome, Mike!! Yer insane..... but that's amazing! I doubt I would be able to do that unless I was riding every single weekend for years.

Im still pretty loopy from my wisdom teeth getting pulled out but ill be ready to so supermoto next weekend. Im still going to wait till the enduro for my next race and you need to tell me for which row to ask.

so does that mean you're going to start doing Triathlons with me?

Saturday's start was a Le Mans, I had to run 30 or 40 feet to my bike. That was my entire running allotment for this decade.

I am not. The next race im planning on doing is the Taft GP in Feb. If they are going to have another Catalina this year, I want to have some GP experience under my belt. I may ask Mike to further Guru me on the whole MX track thing.
I cant get comfortable on the jumps....

in other news I sold the 650R last night



Bittersweet - loved the bike but I just dont ride in the dirt enough to justify having two dirtbikes.

Was sad to see her go but it was time

I am the last person to get jumping advice from. Sometimes I can do it, but it's hard for me to fling myself in the air. Got a new bike, racing it this weekend. With my new number plate
