Red face Update

     

well I just thought i'd give you an update. Since i havn't been posting much anymore, my dad did a restore and i lost everything. and internet explorer sucks! i can't even post it is so slow when i type the words don't show up until like 5 minutes after i'm done typing and it hesitates like 30 seconds to scroll down. but i got opera again so i should be posting some more. I've once again decided to sell my bike. It is beginning to feel a little small now. i'm 5'5" and i think i'm ready for the 125. I've decided on a 125. I rode a 2001 yz250f and i loved it. so smooth and HEAVY. then i rode a cr151 and i like the peppy. so i decided hey i'm staying 2-smoke, sorry motoman . but i was talking to the local kawi dealer and he said the kx250f is sweet it just comes on hard at bottom. but i still like the peppy 2-smoke power. and it's lighter/ cheaper. i think i'll be able to handle it better. and i've decided to prolly get a job this winter (can't do anything else in that dreded snow) and i'm gonna pay everything towards my bike. i have 50 coming in, and i might help my dads work do inventory and there's another 100. so i'm gonna get that loan down as far as i can. then i'm gonna purchase a kx125 next spring. maybe a 2003 but prolly a 2004. Can't wait!

Injuries: if ya remember i was in the med center twice a couple weeks ago. My left ankle still hurts to walk on it. i've rid the wrap, but it hurts a little, but doesn't need the wrap. and my shoulder 12 days later still kills to put any pressure on it or against it. I'm 98% sure it's a strained rotator cup. he said 5 days and everything will be healed, and if my shoulder isn't he's worried it's a strained rotator cup and go to the family doctor. and 12 days later still bad but i'm not gonna go in. it's ridable with a little bit of pain.

Weather: getting cold. riding is limited. i hate cold.

Well that's it for now, i'll try to post more often now that i got opera and it doesnt' take 20 minutes to type a sentence. Just thought i'd fill ya in on the whole thing.

well i could get a new one. for christmas. but i'm not on it like i use to be. i'm mostly on for like half an hour tops and i get bored, unless someone is online to talk to. but i've decided to get the 2004 thor core gear instead. I love that gear. should i get hte lime or black or what color would look good with kawi? i also thought about the navy and orange. i dont' think that'd look to bad

well i'm 98% sure on the gear that i'm getting it. but dont' know what color. and the comp i think were getting one of those 2. we've had it up to here (hand at top of head) about 589346583569860236489763458632 985689 5681732645876342897 times with this thing.

MOre updates:

Went riding for the last time this year prolly today. gun season starts next sat and your not suppose to ride guring gun season (might get shot). well we went out and it was COLD, had sweatshirt under jersey with hood up under my helmet. and after about 10 minutes my hands and face went numb so it didnt' feel cold anymore. it rained all week, so all the whoops were filled in with frozen water. one puddle we couldn't go around, it was about up to the top of my engine. luckly my feet were up and it didn't get me wet at all. i did get wet once and boy was that water cold! my dad hit a tree, but is fine. but plastics in cold weather don't last lond and he broke his front number plate, i'll get pics. i didn't fall but i wish i had hit a tree going 50 it prolly would have felt better than my shoulder did. i couldn't pull back at all. and at the beginning i made the mistake and did. and i paid for it the next 20 miles. well all in all it was an excellent last trip.

and as for the new bike. i still dont' htink i'm ready for a 125. i could handle it, but theres parts on the trail, rocks ruts, whoops. where if i was on a 125 i don't know what would have happened. i mean with my 100 it kicks me in the @ss enough. can only imagine if it was a 125. but i think i'll be ready next year.
