    Cool video Sarah.

    Did any of you who were behind me on SS2 get a shot of me lying at the side of the road? Just wondering.

    Recovery from my crash is going to be long. Surgery took 6 hours or so of reconstructing most ligaments and cartilage. No bone damage or nerve damage. I should heal. Going to be a couple weeks in a drug induced fog then 6 to 9 months of pt. But I should be walking somewhat in 6-8 weeks. Right now all I can manage is hobbling to the bathroom on crutches a few time a day. Brain rather foggy. Hope sanity ... mine and my wife's... holds out.

    Damn Doug that is unhappy news. There but for the grace go us all. Hoping you heal up more quickly than they say and stronger than before.

    Hey Doug, I have video of you, and you don't look happy. Thought about whether to add it in my video or not. I'll do my best to get it up here asap. Sorry to hear about the surgery, keep us posted.

    Doug, sorry to hear that. Hang in there. No way it will take you 6-9 months to get back at it. No way. You will be back in the saddle a lot sooner than you think. You may be a little slower ( I speak from experience ), but you'll be back soon.

    sanity?

    Doug is just using this as an excuse to buckle down and focus on his end goal of competing in the Dakar. i suspect that right now he is putting together a regimented training plan to reabilitate his wounds and convert his body into a well toned riding machine. During this down time he will be ordering the rally kit for the 450 and researching the locations of the nearest MX track where he can start riding laps at for endurance training. I suspect that he will use the down time to research the dietary needs and start building a proper training menu. I'd wager in about 3 months Douglas Chapman will not be recognizable by any of us...and not in a unibomber kind of way but in an arnold schwarzenager (sp be damned) kind of way. :clap

    I have been having a few thoughts like these. I think some of that may be due to the narcotics. But... in order to get my knee back it will require total dedication to the PT. If I can extend that to the rest of my body I can be in much better shape than before.

    As far as the bike I already had some stuff on the way to prep it for the Tuareg so yeah will be doing a lot of rally prep over the winter. The Tuareg is out of course but there will be other rallies.

    I don't plan on being in riding shape for Sandblast but I am planning on going down and volunteering. Hope to see a bunch of you there!

    I'll see you there, looking forward to shaking the 690 down for the MX1k.
    Volunteering for registration was fun!
