you better not be pussing out on KM! Let me know if you need a little medical magic to help the healing process

Joel,

Sorry about your crash. Sounds like you might be wearing the Leatt outside of your pressure suit? It's supposed to be worn right on your body, with the pressure suit worn on top of it. My order is:
  1. Dri-fit running shirt
  2. Leatt
  3. Koerta suit, worn over the Leatt. The front zips mostly up, close enough
  4. Camelback
I may have a couple jerseys altered, to make the neck bigger so it fits over the Leatt and over the pressure suit.

----------

You all have it wrong.

It's
1. Drink until you're drunk
2. Drink some more
3. Fill your Camelback with alcohol and keep riding....while drinking.
4. Stop every 30 minutes to drink some more.
5. If you drink beer, you might need to have your clothing altered to fit your pressure suit/beer belly.

I'm glad to hear that joel is doing OK. I was in the Starbucks right next to the meeting place, I met ruger in the morn, going to the islands to do some deep sea diven next week, then latter on around 2:00 Jim and Tim came in after the shoot and said h8chains was in a crash. Hurt and going home. Just think how you would feel if you were only wearing a jersy. I would like to meet you up at KM, if you go up, I wiil putt slow with you. Take care and putt slow, the butt

thanks for all the responses...and good i still came out ok, just bruised and swollen. nothing a long rest and ibupropen will not fix, just a matter of time.

then this morning, i read the mri report regarding my left shoulder, contrary to what i was told, it wasn't a torn muscle. i might need a minor surgery to remove the fluid in the joints, degenerative osteoarthritis ?, and a bunch of little things..... that was when i fell on ice last december's ice capade ride !

back to the original program

by the time i got to the range, the FFs already fired as much as 200 rounds that they brought with them.


the parking lot was full of vehicles, but the range was relatively empty



the sopasfamily brought a lot of firepower, they were still in the thick of things when i saw them ..... next time, they will have competition...

mooseboy giving amber some help


amber could shoot better than she can ride....


and cathy could ride and shoot all in the same day.....



i wasn't in the shape to shoot anything though i brought 2 handguns and 200 rounds which i'll just use on the next " Right Ride to Bear Arms Part II
plus hardware and military rounds

tim and jim rode to starbucks while i headed home and thinking what am i going to tell my gf....

Bring a gun and all that ammo and you can guard the asada.

Ouch, I'm starting to think I'll just wear my 2 piece leather suit! I'll take the shoulder armor out and wear my dirt chest/back protector & Camel Bak.

I always had doubts about those pressure suits, heck I took a fall Sat on Frazier Mtn going downhill on my WR250 and my left elbow guard moved out of place and I got a nice little scrape on the left elbow!

Well, I picked up my '09 XR650L today after work, what a machine! I'll be out in a few weeks after I wear in the engine and get use to it.
