    Are any of you guy's going to the 100's Nat on the 28th? As I don't need a district lic for a Nat I may bring the Baja bike out for some fun.

    It depends on quyen as far as RUTS goes. We havent had a chill weekend for literally months and she wanted to have a weekend of just doing nothing.
    So it looks like RUTS might be out....the next few weeks will tell.

    I went out to Gorman yesterday to go fool around with a work buddy who had never been on a dirtbike and had a blast just messing around. It was the first time I had the chance to just experiment on the 525. What a bike

    glad you're enjoying it!

    .... however, I GUARANTEE you that at least half of those responses are me and therefore half of the visits are also me. But it really doesnt matter. What matters if people dig it or not!

    I guess i won't be racing Saturday, because I'm a bonehead! I know I am, I saw it while they were stitching up my forehead last night in the ER :huh. I was applying excessive force to an imovable object and smacked myself in the face. The ER doctor says "No moto for a couple of weeks". Damn! I was looking forward to it too. Now I have to get an MRI to. Looks like I will still come out and help one of the guys who rides on my Baja team but I won't be swinging a leg over the bike myself. This sucks....and my head still hurts.

    'the hell were you doing? one of those "push the screwdriver way too hard with the pointy end near soft, fleshy bits" things?

    ....yeah I done that too

    :lol3


    heal quick man

    thanks and thanks!

    :thumb

    bad news for today though. While running this morning, something snapped in my left calf. This has happened to my right calf in the past years ago and its just now starting to get strong. Apparently its called a "Calf Heart Attack" and is very slow to heal.

    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....

    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?
