Glad you are back in the ADV web world Brandon! From one rider just making it back into the saddle to another who has a road "trail" ahead of him to also get there, all I can say is I feel your pain, but the light at the end of this tunnel is NOT an oncoming train. I hope that at least the fact you'll be facing the worst of the recovery during the "off-season" of "common" motorcycling will lessen the angst you feel. But keep posting to let us know how you are doing and how we can help.

Note to self, do not buy a 620!!!

Great to hear from you! Heal fast!

Been through a rehabilitation for some serious injuries, know it's tough, but it sounds like you've got the right spirit, plenty of support and a family that loves you....all a growing boy needs! Keep in touch and let us know if you need anything....even if it's dirty jokes. I got plenty of those.

I wants me a Yamahopper with a big rally fairing! It will be mine, oh yes it will. Blue, and sexy, and with big sturdy valves that never go out of spec. Just need to trip over a big duffel full of cash somewhere.
Can a rally Yamaha be purchased in the states ready to go or do you have to build it?

Thats great news about him losing a foot, he won't be able to outrun the prison rapist in the shower with that stump. Glad to hear your progressing, you are kinda like a rock star now.

Seems it wouldn't be terribly difficult to build a WR450Rally

You sure about that? I say I have something that can clamp to the kitchen table and ask how wide the jaws need to open and you just let it slide - I think you're losing your touch!

Sparkster - good to see you are on the mend - hope you aren't having to hit the morphine button too often. rest up, heal quick and start PT as soon they will let you.

Yeah, read that...it wouldn't be hard to do, it's mostly spending $$ to get the parts made or here from Europe.

First things first, make fortune with amateur porn career.

Brandon, Great to see you back Online. Sounds like you have some work ahead of you, but after what you've already done, I'm sure you'll get through it. Hope you are up and around soon.
