That is my SPOT. Get your head out of the gutter... not that spot.
Have you thought about labeling it in some way so if someone who's not familiar comes along they'll see it?

Somehow we need to blame this on Jake!

Rehab advice:

A PEZ dispenser that looks like a ADVrider and dispenses Vicodin.

Okay, lets take a vote, should we blame it on Jake?

[quote=h8chains]toast suddenly showed up after getting separated from the A riders... and decided to join us


Joel,
I was at the first tire flat changing session. I was the fourth guy to make the left at the T, passed 2 guys and was waiting for you at a puddle with my camera and you guys never showed up, so I decided to go back and see what was up. Not sure I would have been able to keep up with the "A" riders, but I would have tried real hard. Someone should buy some orange circle stickers and we can figure out a standard place to put them on our bikes. This would give permission for the fellow riders to perform a full cavity search looking for the spot (device that is).

On the last 2 big rides I have done with Joel, the worse injuries are related to the Honda XR.

Henry says count his vote in. And since I, Brigitte, am helping out I'll vote too.

Didn't i read that Henry doesn't remember anything till he woke up in the chopper? If so, then "the finger" doesn't count, yes?

Or maybe it's an instinctual thing, beyond conscious thought, that took over in this situation. Hmmmm.........

Either way, get well soon dude!!!

i normally keep mine with me, fearing that in the event i get ejected, hurt badly and could not walk back to my bike, or lost my bike, or the spot got crushed by the impact....i can still activate it within arm's reach. i keep it in a padded bag and make my riding buddy aware of it's whereabout.

Hey Toast, Judging from how you were riding after lunch, I think you would have "kept up" just fine.

I like the orange dot idea, too.

Thanks for that Riceless.
Last of the videos here, sorry if they don't work for you. SmugMug videos don't seem to be as universal as YouTube. The POV recorder has been crap since I upgraded the firmware and I only got 2 videos out of it, the rest are from the digital camera.

Almost home at this point, I miss looking at all that fine KTM machinery. You guys have some really pimp bikes!
