I'm sure his thoughts on the way down were something like, "This is gonna hurt.........!"

Dave Despain also had that clip on his Wind Tunnel program. Not too many more feet of air time, and he would have been into that piece of heavy equipment sitting along side of the track.

Hey Jimmy,
If I can get out of here by 5:00, are you up for a visit today? Can I bring you anything? (magazines, books, cookies!)

Inspection due

Thanks, iIt's on my to do list and the car, both this week.

By the way are you still running the Informer XL themometer? Do you have any pictures of how you mounted it to the RAM Mount? I'm getting ready to order one now for this Fall/Winter riding.

"A Florida man has topped 300 mph on a conventional motorcycle."

Thumb Update

I was accepted in the rehab unit at VCU/MCV yesterday. The therapy is physically damanding, but I'm so happy to make progress.

I'm finally willing to allow myself to envision life outside of the hospital, and it's a beautiful vision. I hope to break bread with you all in the near future.

I am constantly thankful for your thoughts and prayers, and selfishly ask that you continue.

God bless you all, and please ride safely.

- Jimmy

Great News Jimmy! Keep those spirits up! There is still always so much to be thankful for.

I will continue to pray for fast and complete healing as well as God's plan for all this. As you know our pain will have a purpose...because of our Redeemer.

Excellent news Jimmy. Be on the look out for a fledgling OT stalking the halls down there. She's doing lab work down there - somewhere - working with cadavers. Make sure she knows you're still on top of the grass and have no plans except to make the Great Escape!!!
