I haven't been on here much lately... This town really keeps you busy with work. All I know is I've seen him posting a fair bit about Rugby games the last little while on Facebook... Hadn't heard about the bike accident, hope he's okay.

Yea, kept the accident off of facebook as I didn't really want to get my parents freaking out.
Ended up with them finding out anyway. hahahah

anyway, cbr is not happy with me, and I still don't trust my knee enough to ride. I thought it was stable enough, so I tried it, well, bike stalled cause I hadn't let it warm up enough, and my knee buckled, so down went the DR and me.
hehe
Fortunately it was in my yard, and I was laughing so hard my neighbor felt pity, came over, and laughed too.


But the CBR is going to need some new fairings, new foot peg, new radiator, and it's leaking oil somewhere. :( F'ing SUCKS.

And maybe a new paint job...something the local constables dont recognize.

I was thinking more like this

And you could have a similar paint scheme... In the UK they are selling their Honda ST1300 Police bikes

Maybe you'd prefer a BMW?

Terry seems to have been a very well loved man. Sorry about the loss of your friend.

Even though I would like to be there, I doubt I will be. I am trying to talk a friend of mine into driving down here to go shoot some targets

I hope to be there.
But in the jeep. :(
Something is still not right with my knee. Currently arguing with insurance that I really do need another MRI.
:(
They seem to think it's not normal for someone to have this many MRI's in a year.
