Ouch, this was a fast one. Get well soon.

Your crash is exactly why I haven't done any races since Dirt Diggers of 2011. Someone took me out at about the same speed, I was limping for nearly a month. I need to go to work on Mondays, this stuff is for someone with less responsibilities.

this comin from the guy who still hasnt showed up for a race....



my shoulder. I still cant lift it. Mike said, "Oh!! You've got a 'Dangler' !!'

I think I was pretty lucky as it was. I dont think that Im going to need surgery, Ive already gotten back a lot of flexibility but ill leave that up to the pros.

last year during the season i got a 12 inch vertical incision in my abdomen to fix a hole in my intestines. no racing.

this season, i've been broke and my bike's been with Javier. so no racing.

as you know, racing isn't cheap. gas in the van is no joke.

yeah, gas is the most expensive part for sure. But remember the racin' is only like $50. usually for me an entire weekend of racing is about $150 including a shirt!


had my MRI today.... will get results soon. I've got a super motard class on April 8. Judging by how that goes, ill plan my next race.... Invaders?

Supermoto?? How's that going to help you in the desert?

I do have a set of stickies for the 525, maybe have to come and check it out. Oh wait, I'll be racing that weekend.

Yeah, that's so much safer. Remind me to tell you about the guy I used to know that supermotoed right under a Chevy Blazer.
