    I really hope that didn't happen in the mud hole you were in.

    OK I have to clear my conciense (sp?). After Joe was having a hard time (He could'nt walk from his truck to the bike, but rode anyways) and fell a couple times, you know how it is when you have a problem everything gets worse, We decided to head back and call it a day.

    We get to a big mud pit caused by trucks, and I go around, fist goes around Joe comes around the corner and is stuck in the big tire rut, so he inches towards the water till his front tire was in it, and looks up at me for a sign , so, I waved him on. Now mind you I know the area and have been in this hole myself. It gets pretty deep but is soild under foot.But I have been through it lots of times. As you reach the center it drops down a little more to around 6 inches under your seat, thats were things went bad, that will catch a little off guard, Joe went for a dab on the right side and missed, and fell over, and all we could see was his mirrior and his left shoulder sticking out of the water. Every thing else was under water including his head. We jumped in and helped him out but it was too late for the bike, we pushed it to a close parking lot and brought the trucks around.
    Anyway, sorry Joe!

    its not as bad this time. the bone is held in place by the rod so itsonly a stress fracture.

    I am writing off this year for riding though. next spring looks like a ways off, but this rebreak shit sucks so I gotta just focus on healing.

    wait a minute, how did that little blue truck get back there? is it 4wd? I used to own an s10 2wd and I was thinking about how I would have needed a running start and a prayer.

    It definitely would not have looked that clean afterward:D

    btw...I loved my s10!!

    Welcome JMV!

    I'm mostly a poser around here as the GS is too big and I'm too fat and old to ride it much off road. I can lead a good ride on the roads though.

    The pics near your screen name are Avatars -- go to User CP, Edit your Avatar. They need to be small -- 75 x 75 pixels I think. Us your favorite photo editor to save a pic small. ...or pick one of the Avatars they have for you to use.
