    Absolutely no need to apologize Kris.

    glad it was that easy of an ordeal, although im not sure she would agree with my word usage there.

    I drove today, only because I have to wash the funk out of my helmet before I put my head back in there.
    3 days of riding with no shower took its toll.

    Glad you are ok Kris. Maybe you should keep a smear of honey on your upper lip as an emergency blood sugar booster :D. All kidding aside, my Father was a diabetic, and low sugar episodes were scary. Hope you are back up to full speed.

    Daughter had her first race yesterday. She came in 6th out of 8. We were very proud of her for just doing it. She fell in the practice lap. Travis daughter came up and said she fell but got right back on and is doing good. There was a pretty good size mud/water hole. She made it through every time.

    Say one of Docs boys out there as well. I see Doc post about clean bikes and that the owner needs to get some dirt on them. Well he sure would have been proud of his boys bike. It was muddy.

    Wife took this picture right after she finished. You can see the smile under the helmet. She cant wait to get to the next race.

    +1, layering while riding is the suck, not to mention dangerous as it restricts your movement. Heated vest is one of the best investments in motorcycle riding.

    It was a nice 3.5 hr drive. Lots of driving for a 30 min race. but well worth it. Need to get my little boy a small 50cc dirt bike now. He might be racing his 4 wheeler next weekend in Norfok :huh

    Congrats. Very cool. I tried to get my daughter into it but no dice. I even told her that it would be an easier path to fame than being a singer or actress or something stupid like that, because how many really good women motocrossers, rally riders, super crossers, etc. are there? Very few. Still, she wasn't buying it. Can't tell kids nuthin.

    Who ran this race? Was it a hare scramble or an enduro? I want to take up racing myself, because how many old farts with bad knees are there? Millions, but I still want to do it. I don't have any of that fancy enduro timing gear, though, so I think hare scramblin' is the way to go.

    It's the sale where they jack up the price and pretend to give you a bigger discount. Friggen snake oil salesmen. Todd caught them doing this a couple years back. He had a tire saved in his basket before the sale, it was a lower price then what they were showing during that sale, but when he went to add the "discount" it wouldn't work. He called them up and they started dancing around the subject, but they refused to sell him the tire at the original price minus the discount.

    Yea what Doc put. Next weekend the race in Norfok is put on by AXC racing. Same kind of racing. But they race 4 wheelers Saturday and dirt bikes Sunday. I found the AXC racing group more set up for familys.
