sm ride 04.11.2010

weather looks ok. lets go somewhere.

i don't have any ideas.
i saw on drz forums that the road me and inspector tried out past carbonado runs for longer distance than it did when we went out and had to end up on private property to have fun... we coulod take a shot at that. getting there from buckley is fun too so even if the dirty is short it can still be fun.

if there is interest and maybe some suggestions i will update this thead as needed.

as it stands now i'm not sure if i'm in or not. really wanna be but i've got things that are limiting my ability to do fucking anything right now...

I'll have to check into your route, cause I'll bet you 10to1 that we were within 1mile of the end last time.

*I just don't see me putting that many miles on a brand new rear tire just for that small/short road.

Then why put a new rear on?

i just tossed that idea out there... find a better, closer route and we'll do that instead.
hell i might even go back out 38 just cuz we were able to cross the creek.

Did not really post much up about it. I crashed on March 6th after hitting a step up wrong and when I made it to the ER about 4hrs later (after the crash I thought it was no big deal) I was waiting to be seen in the ER when I felt like I was going to pass out. As I was talking to a nurse asking if I could lay down, I felt myself going out, next thing I know I am in a bed with about 15 people around me saying welcome back etc.. I lost my pulse for a bit

Anyways all my organs on the left side of my body where and still are swollen and I am still not 100% which is why I had complications when I had my kidney stone surgery last week, see catheters suck on PNW

I wish it was because of a skined knee lol, not even about being aggressive I have been woring on my sons new race bike and everytime I get on it I am skidish. I hate feeling like that but know that riding bikes right now just is not for me, may change next week, month, etc. Just don't want to ride scared as that is no way to ride a bike

anywho have fun on the ride

+1. Didn't know anything about it.

My neighbor was talking about his brother hanging out with all the big name MX guys. (I didn't recognize any). He was playing around on a track with them when he tried a double and didn't quite make it. Broke his arm in three different places. Doesn't ride anymore.

That's cool.

*I think I would have voted for that one road that you said was open now which i actually think that was open all along cause i really didn't believe you the first time you said the bridge was washed out making the road impassable there fore making the road closed.

*that would be a good road for noobs

*ground down my skid plate so I think I can install it tomorrow night and be all ready to rock cause i just want to ride and it will not rain on friday just on sunday which is good cause i didn't want to ride with you anyway cause i don't like you.

if the road i think you are talking about is the one i'm thinking of the bridge was washed out and i has witnesses to proof it... thing is even tho its open now there was a gate across the only other road last time i was out there. so basically you can go about a quarter mile further now that the bridge it fixed.
