Great picture though.

Hey LSGiant - sorry to hear about your friend.

You are right, got to just enjoy life as much as possible, while you've got it.

Stich

Prop, glad you are ok. Can you send the Stich in for repairs? Or are you set on getting a new one?

Thanks. I'm pretty sure it's toast. I'll send them pics and verify, but I expect I'll be getting a new one. I think I'll get a tan coloured one next.

I was at the store during the very boring rally and noticed a whole rack of crashed suits. Maybe it can live on that museum rack. Not sure why there are there...maybe for parts?

I assume it's PR as much as anything.

I might hang it in my garage along with my increasing collection of trashed Elkskin Roper gloves.

Which means, er, two pairs.

Not really. I expect other people have many, many, many pairs. I would have been happy with one, never trashed in an accident pair of gloves.

It's the "war story" rack. Those same suits have been on display there for years.

Wow! Prop glad you are ok. That really sucks. I had a deer run out in front of me last year after one of the dinners - the German place out west, but it was open and I saw him before anything happened.

I am now 3.5 weeks post surgery. I have most of my range back in my arm. Just can't lift anything for a few weeks yet.

Bike was rebuilt out at Belle Plaine. They did a great job and it looks brand new. Minor stuff on the bike though since I took the brunt of the hit.

My wife told me she was not going to tell me that I couldn't ride either. So there's that.

Will that set off an alarm at the airport?
