2003 or so I was skiing like a madman. Best season ever.
Had a pair of Rossignol bandits-the faster they went, the better they carved. I was skiing fast,even beating the ski team times on the clocked GS-style course.
Amazing year, right up until a freak wind blew me off the trail. Came to w/ a concussion,dislocated thumb,separated shoulder,etc.
As soon as the sling came off, cast still on, I was back on the hill. Skiing fast. Made me think,WTF?
So I began to ski more technically. That Spring marked my return to motorcycling after several bike-less years.
Guess what? I was riding fast. Too fast.Took me a while, finally made the same decision to ride more technically.
Opinions are like internet connections- everybody has one.
