Is someone on here riding a 530 to work at lowerys?
Looks well equipped.
Thats a poor place to park...as it causes some serious rubber necking to anyone with dual sporting interests.

Tent Space in Thunder bay

I have a guy here camping in my yard that is heading to Alaska.
Anyone have a spot for him in Tbay Tomorrow night?

Some nice passes there Rob. Reminded me a bit of Marquez (teasing, teasing). Hope you aren't hurt too badly.

Hey dsdude - that is Terry's bike. He owns the Lowerys. Great guy. Last time I met up with him, his girlfriend was riding a KLX250S too and was doing some pretty challenging rides with him.

Looked like you were doing well in the race Rob until the crash. Did your bars hit the tree on the left?
Sounds like we'll see you at the icebreaker. Heal quick!

It was so quick that I didn't even know what had happened till I watched the video a couple of days later!

I was standing and it sounds like I got on the gas a bit and maybe had my weight over the bars a bit too much? It just turned 90 degrees left in the blink of an eye...don't really know why it did that, never had that happen before without physically hitting something with the bars

Nothing broken, just really, really sore in my lower back right now and not functioning very well.

Guess I wasn't meant to race a dirt bike First time I've ever injured my back riding...don't like it

If he is stuck, he can grab a bit of back yard here. I'm off the tent space list for now, and will not be the best company!

I PM'd you.

Great course, looked like you were doing well; but damn, that was a violent get-off!
Back injuries can definitely be life changing events. Mine kept me sidelined for 14 months, then surgery got me mobile again.
Hope yours is sorted out quick.

Cheers, Brian
