Default Time to throw in the towel guys...

     

Ive decided to sell my bikes... After my back injury around Christmas time and not being able to ride on dirt/track/whereever anymore without serious complications for my future ive decided to sell my bikes.

I sold my AG bike last week for $900 which was very good money.

I just want to say thankyou to you guys for being supporitive and THE website for motorbikes on the internet. Good luck to everbody involved in this website and I wish you all much sucess.

I will continue to ride... on street, it is less destructive on my back.

For all that are interested in my bike heres something i made up. Its in Australia BTW.

And once again, Thankyou guys and good luck. LONG LIVE ATM!

I am sorry to hear about your injuries. I dont know the extent of your injuries but I wouldnt go selling everything yet.

I have had two back surgeries in the past 2 years (I had two disks replaced) and would have never thought I would ever get back on a bike. Well, 6 months after my last surgery I was buying me a new bike.

I am not going to lie to you, it is a rough row to hoe, I still take morphine and oxycontin everyday, but at lest I cn get out and be a functioning member of society. While I cant ride as hard as I used to, nor as long, I get out and set my own pace and do what my back will allow on that day.

Sorry to hear mang and best of luck to you.

BTW, there is always other motorsports to get in to (I don't know the specifics of your injuries so you may not be able to do these either). Like drag racing cars or bike, road racing cars or bikes, boating, jet skiing, etc.

Regards,
John

There's nothing wrong with being a woods/trail rider like myself.

I have a blast everytime I go out and ride.
