Nice dinner with James and family. Took my little bunch over to see 'em. He looks real good but it's gonna be a tough haul.

Yes. SOG's hand looks FAR better than either of mine. Eating a BBQ sandwich with a nub is never graceful.

I also had lunch with Ghost and BigDave yesterday. Hanging out with those two is a real ego boost! I Have a long way to go before I screw myself up as bad as either of them.

Man SOG! That's an era gone bye! Love those pics! It's great to see others who've suffered through this socially unacceptable addiction and lived to tell about it, just as I intend to. Tell me that's not living! Eat your hearts out haters!!!

Yup, James. The m/c haters come out of the woodwork when you are wearing a cast. It's open season. Gotta be worse with two casts.

Fuck'em. I'm a lifer.

They're just jealous they don't have the stones to ride. To battle deer on the open road, Mano a Mano (ah, deero?) with your bare hands and a 600 lb motorcycle. This is particularly hypocritical of the trauma docs that we keep in business.

The way I see it, you can either live life or sit on the couch and watch people living theirs on the TV. Choose wisely...

Erik Buell was recently quoted as saying something like - My new bike is $40,000. That's the price of a new minivan. I know which one I would rather buy.

I just learned that the owners and friends of mine who operate Loco Coyote lost there home yesterday. A complete loss. It is next door to LC. Apparently Loco Coyote escaped the inferno.

Might be a good time to drop in for some great BBQ and give them the business. They will need it. They are all okay. Thank goodness.

Oh snap! How'd that get started?

It's a real wonder that it didn't hit the restaurant and half the county.

For real.

And now I've got people saying, "well at least you didn't get another crotch rocket." This is despite the fact my wreck was such that it wouldn't have mattered what kind of bike I was on.

I have heard more shit than I can remember about bikes and me. I wish I had a dime for all the times have been told "you gonna get yourself killed on that motorcycle." I remember back in 06 when I was in the Hillcrest Hospital after my low speed wipe out on the Strom, everyone said it was a wake up call that I needed to quit bikes LIKE HELL Did they not remember I picked the bike up at the wreck and rode it on to work. Hell the Paramedics followed the bloodtrail to my office. I did not realize I had bled that muchYeah...I am a LIFER for REAL

You wanna hear some shite? Start touring Mexico on your bike. Even the FF's will call you a FF!

Same kinda bad rap as motorcycling. Silly, really.
