I'll be at Rowher Sunday. I'll look for you guys.
Don't want to slow up a little bike ride, so I'll probably just say hi.

If any other adv'ers out there need medical care and are without insurance, I'd recommend this place in Culver City, http://newcareclinic.com/ My roommate and I went over to Brotman Hospital which is very close to our place. The staff in the emergency room was extremely rude, and (to no fault of her own, policy is policy) told me that under no circumstances can they discuss financials until I am being discharged. After a quick google search, I found that half a dozen stitches could cost nearly $1500 at some hospitals! Clearly that was not an option. Anyways, I ended up going to New Care Clinic, whose receptionist happily gave us a ball park over the phone. In the end I paid a bit more than her ballpark, but I also got a tetanus shot and the antibiotics. Six stitches, the shot, and the antibiotics for $305 isn't bad at all. The entire staff was very courteous and never once gave me the cliche scolding for having dared to make the choice to ride a motorcycle.

Despite the calamity, yesterday was one of the best days I've ever had. The riding was tons of fun, and the company was even better. As I said before, Jamin, who was a complete stranger until that morning, went above and beyond. When Jamin dropped me off, I came home and my roommate, who I've only known for about two months, hopped right into action. He started making calls, trying to find an affordable place to get me sewn up, then drove me around until we ended up at New Care, then waited while I was put back together. I think he's secretly campaigning for roommate of the year. When we got back to the apartment, a girl who I've been hanging out with for a few weeks is waiting for me, with a bag of takeout, and ready to play nurse . Days like yesterday go a long way to help you believe in humanity.
I was in an emergency room once, had a nurse walk in and say, so your the dumbass taking up all my resources.. At first I thought they were kidding, but they were not, I had never had such bad service at a hospital, I was released, and get this admitted to ANOTHER hospital 2 days later lol... They took great care of me, and didnt care if I rode motorcycles or not, they just wanted to see me get better.... I think my last big off cost somewhere over 150k total, 5 bones, internal injuries, surgery... It was alot! I even had AFLAK and that helped very much...

But like I said, im chilling these days, I dont need to make the tripples in 4th wide open anymore... I love Dual Sporting, and while dangerous, not nearly as dangerous as Racing or MX or SX...

oh and I ordered my 13/50 should have it soon, and I also ordered the lowered seat, cuz even at 5.10 im losing my height and need a little more foot on the ground lol... The comphort wont make a difference, my KTM Seat already sucks giant balls so I dont sit much anyway lol.. I should be ready by the following weekend FOR SURE!

How about we meet at bouquet staging for a change. Shady parking, easy to replenish supplies between Rowher and Drinkwater. Perhaps a regroup at the Big Oaks Lodge after ride!

Woo-hoo! Sounds good to me. I've been to Big Oaks Lodge several times, but always on the Harley.
