Brent??

I hope I am wrong on this. I met a bunch of Reno guys in Eureka this morning. They mentioned they were on a 10 day ride and that one in their group had broken his leg on the first day......

Yep that is correct. He went down maybe 30 miles into the trip. He was riding a KTM 990 and went down. Bummed. At least he was easily extracted.

Yeah George, sorry to say that was me. Got the tib and fib in my right leg and did them both pretty bad. Had a nursing supervisor and ortho surgeon waiting for me when I got to the hospital. Crashed at 12:15 on Fri., couple hours to get out of the desert and I was in surgery by 5:15. Got out of the hospital by noon on Sat. Not too bad all in all, but I won't be walking or riding for a number of months. Oh well. C'est la vie.

Bad News

That is really too bad! I had the same break in '95 at beautiful Fernley International Raceway. 4 plates and lots of screws. Healed fine.

Get well!

Ouch Brent!
When the 990 bites it bites hard.
Heal fast, you will ride another day.

120+ miles today. All double track, mostly 2,3 gear stuff. Great time, but no pics or vid. I was jamming like Bob Marley. Sounds like next week is on. Where can I meet you guys near bordertown or close to there? I can map out some dirt to just about anywhere it appears. Just need time to get it done.

Side note, the road book was nearly spot on. Just a few changes to make and it's ready for anyone to ride it.

Wish some where near here sold corn free gas. THis BS is wrecking my motor.
