Hi. My left thumb is ok now just some pain but usable. My right one is still pretty messed up. I can hardly stand the pain sometimes if I hit it or forget and try to grab something. I've started riding on the street again although it's not really safe since I can't hardly use the front brake or twist the throttle. But I have to get around. It's going to be some time before I can do dirt again which is really pissing me off since I really wanted to ride right after the rain and also try out the new addition to the fleet.
I got the new front disc to replace the one that got bent so the bike is ready to go.
Thanks for checking up on me. I shall ride again!

Might not be open anyway so there may not be a ride, unless someone wants to go up Holy Jim Canyon.

Was heading down Hamner to get some subway and decided to go all the way down to Ontario and check if the skyline gate was unlocked, it was.

I didn't ride up so I'm not sure if the main divide gate is open or not.

edit: also, wtf? this guy put like 50 pickles on my sub..
