Actualy I was pulling my dual 8" headlight frame off the Baja bike and it was stuck in the rubber mounts. I was in a hurry and just pulled harder. It let go and I took the whole thing in my face. DOH! Race prep can be as dangerous as riding.......when your a bonehead.

Where are you guys going to be parked? I would like to come by and say hi?

Ive hurt myself just walking around my GS. I totally forgot I left the highway pegs down and wanged my shin so bad once I thought I was going to die.

we're not going to make it out this weekend.... my family is coming down from SB to visit for the weekend. I was planning on doing RUTS but the KTM still needs the fork worked on and my wife wanted to have that weekend for a chill weekend.... so time with tell..... but probably not.

another time, perhaps?

As far as im concerned its sidelined me for the half marathon I was supposed to run next weekend, but It AINT slowing down my racing. I do however need to get my bike up to ESP so they can redo the fork....
And THAT is exactly why I don't run. That shit's bad for you.

heading out for the RUTS race this weekend for a wham-bam race day. We have family stuff to take care of this weekend so I think we're going to come out Saturday morning and sign up race and head home.

RUTS always has cool fliers!
