    Had my first experience on a motocross track today, I haven't been in this kind of pain in quite a while. Spilled it over the bars and gave myself a good wallop on the right side, it looks like I got attacked by a feral cat. All in all good day though.

    I was wondering the same,,where?

    I'd always rather lose it over the bars than loop it, land flat on my back, and have the bike land on my uhh,,my chest,,btdt,,not the fun part of MX, we didn't have chest and back protectors 35 yrs ago when I last rode MX. I remember some pretty colorful bruises back then,,:lol3
    wait'll you have to have a brand new boot cut off yer laig!:cry
    NOT MY NEW BOOT DOC!!
    "the boot or your whole foot!"

    cut the damned boot,,at least I got to wear 'em twice :eek1,,once when I tried 'em on,,and once when I crashed in 'em.:1drink

    Tip: show up well before 6:20 or you may meet some riders but they won't be the crusty good looking ADV type.

    Safety tip: Don't roll into the Old Pad at 6:30 on Wed night and ask the pirate bikers, "do you know where I can find Peter....Man?" :lol3

    Uhh,, I'm not!
    One of the seven deadly sins of motosickling,,
    bikes on trailers, or bike in pickups,,bad juju,,


    not as bad as bikes on a flatbed tow truck, but that is excusable,,

    sometimes,,:evil



    if it's a BMW or KTM,,,:lol3

    Gnaw,,this is Zacky's little drag behind,,it was just in such bad shape it needed a Peterman. (no really,,look that up!)
    I resurrected it instead. I shoulda took some before pics,,,:1drink

    I was working late myself. Leaving, even just to hoist a brew with you guys, just wasn't in the cards.
    It was a rough week... Thank God for three-day weekends!
