Default Confucius’s SAY...OUCH

     

Another causality, I bit it hard to day. I don’t know if you all have started out a day like this one, but I just didn’t want to ride. I just felt bad from head to toe. I just felt something was bad was going to happen. I started out the week with the flu, which indeed turned up being a sinus infection. After I got a feeling a little better I though I could go ride just abit.

Well, I got on the pegs and my legs felt like spaghetti noodles, it took me three tries to get my legs over(and I am 6’). I was spent before I ever popped the clutch. But I went on anyway. Everything was fine up until I came up on a 150 uphill jump…I mean you have to be all all-out in 5th gear to make it…well I didn’t, I approached the bottom in 3rd and knew I was in a bad situation. I hit the landing (which is mulch …inorder to stop erosion) and thought right their I was in the wrong gear. I pinned second…no help. Mt front wheel came over me faster than a murders second hand on death row. I bit it. Hard. Ole-Blue has her first balltelscars on her fender and pipe now

Sorry to hear that man. Crashing is just a part of the sport as I have learned over the years. Did you sustain any major injuries or was it just a goofy get off? I managed to blow my knee on a triple that I had been doubling for 3 weeks with no trouble by overjumping the double and slamming the face of the triple.

That triple SUCKS...no room for error at all! I would rather see an 8 yr old do 90mph at the Mile than attempt that jump!

Want me to go have some words with that big wig???

That looks like a fun track, although I'd be rolling all those jumps. I'd still have fun tho!

Would you Charlene? I bet all you would have to do is bat those beautiful eyes at him and he would be riding around the track HIMSELF
