    My box ran over my ankle (note the clear spot on the bottom of the box) in a slippery mud/clay slide. :cry 9 days ago. Dent in the MC boot. Nothing broken but hurts like hell. Anyone out there experienced this?? And most importantly.. How long did your recovery take? [​IMG]

    It was a very tough track that chewed up bad riders on small bikes (like me!) and spit them out. I'll get to the the video editing in a day or so.

    Truth and truth

    Forgot to post GQ shacking up in the dangervan with my brother... Don't get jealous BBF...

    It really was a beautiful property, with some huge hills.

    Unfortunately the camera died before I hit the tires on my third lap, in third gear, rode a huge nose wheelie for the crowd, then nearly endo'd down the hill. I was expecting the checkered flag that lap, but got the white flag and I quit anyway. I was just too beat and too dehydrated, making too many stupid mistakes, and I really didn't want to join the number of guys already crashed, stuck, or broke down on the side of the trail.

    Anyway here is some onboard of my riding. Wound up 11/41 in C Lites, 66/176 OA

    The Big Brown truck arrived today. Nice new Shoei VFX-W. It's not hi-viz, but it sure is sexy. It's brilliant yellow, and I like it.
