You can always go for a ride , but helping with your Son's team comes first in my opinion. Never missed a game in all my 4 kids growing up years. First things first


PS Home by noon if you live in Prescott

Well dam

I would love to join you boys and maybe even show you a few really cool trails heading up to Prescott once you get up around Wagner but I don't have a bike together to do it. Your even riding on a Sunday so that makes me even more bummed. Have fun and get your lights ready for the following Saturdays night ride...

Man... Oh... Man... wish I could join you guys for a bit of the ride on Sunday. However I'm still nursing my injured shoulder. It's been nearly 7 weeks now since the accident.

The accident... I remember like it was only yesterday- - - Was floating along this rough piece of desert... both tires dancing to the roar of the exhaust, Saguaro's and Ocotillo's flying past like fence pickets ....and from out of nowhere came this Kangaroo sized Jackalope on a KTM-moped thingy... then my memory fades away
Well the truth of the matter... I was trimming a palm tree, with my lovely wife at the helm of the tractor mounted cherry-picker. Well...aha, well...aha, well... what can I say we parted ways. The cherry-picker and I - - - The wife is still here.

Go to the orthopedic specialist on Monday, latest MRI show several complete and partial tears of "long-named tendons". As well as a few other "shorter-named muscles and tendons" that are torn, mashed, crushed, badly bent, and otherwise extremely sore S O Bs. The report even threw in a bit of Arthritis to keep things in laymen's terms.
Hell I can't even eat at Ike's as I have a difficult time not using both hands when cakes & bacon are place in front of me.

You boys have fun and If I get up the gumption I may waddle down the street and say Hi. If you hit the last cattle-guard with enough speed to catch air I can usually here ya scream'n with delight that you have landed safetly and not in the back of the Pink RV parked in the street!

Watch for wash outs along the way, lots of rain the past few weeks. The Grader went out Constellation on Thursday but not certain as to what direction it went. No rush as Ike opens at 7am.

I'd stick with the first story We will never tell Heal up & get back out there!! Makes my rotator cuff surgery 2 years back sound minor.

Somebody loan Reidy a bike. Sheesh, he'd do it for you! I'd loan you my xr650, but you'd have to come to Prescott to get it.

Will either be at Wild Horse at 6:00 or waiting at 74 & 87th ave. Hope my 650 is a big enough bike to qualify for this ride
