From what I've heard, he was transported to the ER for brain scans. His helmet was trashed, and he has a lot of road rash.

Hopefully, he'll be okay. He's a bright kid with a promising future.

Remember... they're all out to get you. Never let your guard down. And...

ATGATT!

So sorry.

Sorry to hear about it..Really sucks. Had a friend of a friend at work on his R1 get hit by a drunk driver this weekend, but thankfully he's just bruised up good. He had full gear on.. Guess it's time to stop being lazy and just putting on jeans to ride, and break back out the armored Tourmaster overpants too...

Cool vid! You're supposed to slow down for rail roads though.
I just acquired a GoPro cam as well. May post up some single tracking on the DRZ as soon as I figure out how to embed the link. Dang computers are so comp-li-micated.

Oh and I'm finally getting an SV650 this weekend! Woo hoo! Show me some loops!

Wow! That is high adventure.

One question though.. Who knew Jeff Munn had such power over bears?

Yeah, I started reading it when it was first posted, but hadn't been back for awhile. Not too insane; we all yearn for an adventure like that.

Don't we?? I danged sure do.

Maybe next year. Got something in the works................

They call it the doom machine...

When I got to this and someone commented, "Bring on the men in white coats" I had to laugh, these guys are a bit crazy...

Now that was a story of manly men with big penises, unless they swam in Baikal or Lake Issy Kul. DId that in Kyrgystan and didn't see my boys for three days.

So Teeter, you never caught that episode of "King of the Hill"?
