So, I'll be sitting at home while my wife, who HATES motorcycles, watches all the heroes of my world go in circles. She is going because it is my boys 7th birthday and I bought the KTM fan experience tickets for him. If she leaves before the end of the 2nd motos I am going to kill myself.

Years ago one of my friends broke his leg at Hangtown in a nasty practice crash, he spent the day before the race in the hospital getting surgery and strapped up with braces.
His parents brought him back out to the track and got him propped up in the family motorhome, but he would have none of it.
We got him properly supported in the bed of my truck, and the track crew let us back it up to the fence in the hospitality area so he could watch the races.
