ok.... I can see that...
The only broken bones had or sugery Ive ever needed was from drunk softball.. badly broken wrist with a screw, bone graft and nifty external fixater, next time fused ..
heal fast .. wear ALL gear..
oh I will.... and there will be more gear on my body the next time I go race....
So first you get sick as a dog and now you've broken your shoulder!
Like my doctor asked me "Why do you rider motorcycles?"
Me "eeeh.....uuh....well, all that pain makes me feel alive"
Heal up, stay out of golf courses (they have a shitload of lawnmowers) and get on a stationary bike to keep your conditioning somewhat acceptable.
AJ, thanks for the great posts/videos (as always)!!
Watching you race/crash/break/heal/race/crash/break ad infinitum reminds me of why I quit lo those many years ago......
Nah, seriously, fun stuff for us couch potato types.
Only caught up with all this now. Sorry about your crash brother. I think I broke a funny bone in my shoulder last year in October, because its still sore.
Glad to hear you will still be riding, and did not bend to family pressure.
What gear were you missing on this race? Get a carbon fibre Leatt brace, they're excellent and have saved me a few times.
ill definitely get a neck brace. I leatt is the one to get but ill have to see.
As of today Im starting to reach for things. Now THATs something I never thought I would be taking for granted....
In a lot of pain too these last few days - I must be healing.
Im going to try and do an update video this weekend!
Got my Leatt last year - got some Pod knee braces this year. Talk about looking like a transformer.
Foot's getting better - another week or two and I'll hop back on the mountain bike. We'll see how that goes before getting back on the motorized bike.
I hope you heal up soon - maybe I'll see you out there later this year.
hope you heal up soon too!
Im still in quite a lot of pain even doing simple things like....reaching for stuff. Its going to be a few more weeks yet before riding again.
I wanna cut some stupid video but since I have to use my arm for work anyways, its tough to go home and cut too.... so hopefully this weekend
I still have a video to put up from.....jeez it seems like years ago but now it seems so irrelevant.
I probably should put one up about the crash and subsequent events, because without that my "triumphant return" wouldn't be so triumphant.
I'm planning on doing an Enduro in October with some other Coyotes... much faster coyotes.
I would say that I've made a 90% recovery. I still have fluid and numb spots on my leg but no more pain. I have done a short Triathlon since the crash and I'm planning more.
I also did a Supermoto class a few weeks ago (which is the first time ive gone fast on a bike since the crash) and im doing it again next weekend. If you're in California you guys gotta check this thing out - $200 for a DRZ and all the tracktime you can handle! Awesome deal.
anyways today I ran for an hour and ride the bike for two hours....so im getting back into some decent shape. What does that mean for desert racing? Absolutely Nothing!
Go on, put up the video!
I was getting worried that the n00b going racing was n00b getting fat like me.
No way man. I ran four miles this morning then switched to the bike and rode 17 miles.
Oh and Im signing up for Jimmy Lewis' weekend class here sooner or later
should ride a drz400 like mine for your currently goals is xr650r is fast
I moved on to a KTM525 and it's even FASTER
Here are a few pics of the supermoto class I took and that I am retaking in a few weeks..... SERIOUS fun!!!
as soon as they opened the dirt section, I got passed much less
Looks like fun. That's at Adams kart track, no? That's where i broke my leg when i raced karts.
$199 for a DRZ for the whole day and all the tracktime you can handle....SUPER fun!! and you can learn a lot if you really apply yourself
they give you any coaching, or they just give you bike and turn you loose?
