    I’m confused, was @stunny the rider in the @Todd157k video? Or did Stunny have a similar mishap and need a clavicle fixed? Either way, let’s all heal up ASAP.

    It’s been promised that I’ll be out. I’ve had thoughts of that and can feel it in my bones...

    We performed our own stunts. We just weren't coordinated enough to do them at the same place, at the same time. It's a ballet in the works.

    yeah , next time we should be able to do them at the same time now that we know we can perform the flip individually. More practice on synchronization needed :-)

    Going by the video screen shot you did a fantastic job of sticking the landing but next time try not sticking it with your face and shoulder.

    So sorry, I broke mine about 5 years ago and was no weight bearing for 12 weeks. There a forum, mybrokenleg.com, that provided some entertainment, advice and empathy when I was going through it.

    Thanks, Joel, for putting this on despite some odd logistics. As usual, I had a blast and met some great new riders. The highlight of the weekend was being led by airborndad on a 181 mile slog around the area. When Rider914 says "that's going to be a long ride" you should probably listen. It was a long ride, but surprisingly it didn't kick my ass. Ballarat, Goler, Mengle, West Road...then a lot of pavement home. Here's a few pics:
    Are you the one who was riding two-up at Reward when this happened (well, one-up at the time)?

    Friday (3/26)

    Friday got off to a slow start, but for a very good reason :nod
    [​IMG]

    @Ladybug Cherie (sp?) had driven all the way down from Washington state for the rally, but conveniently left the key for her TW back at home :doh
    I was feeling sympathetic (since I had done pretty much the same thing last year :hide) and offered to help get the bike running so that Cherie could go on a planned ride with @Little Bike Sue to Beatty and Titus. Fortunately, the TW is about as basic as a bike gets and it needed only a simple switch between the right wires to get things functional. Shame on me for not taking any pictures of the operation (I think Cherie did take a few).

    It was a fun little exercise and along the way we found found the original Yamaha tool kit that looked like it hadn't been touched since leaving the factory in 1988 :eek7

    Big thanks to @Lost Roadie (for showing that all you really need to hotwire a bike is a safety pin), @dunerat (for providing the switch that was a bit more finger safe than the safety pin), @Carl57y (letting me dig thru his massive stash of crimp-connectors), and a couple others i've probably forgotten (who stopped by to offer encouragement) :thumb

    Sue and Cherie ready to ride :ricky

    So now that 'work' was done, it was time to think about going for a ride :hmmmmm

    Continued...
