ouch!

Sorry to hear the sad story. did the extra riding on the injury cause increased damage? Hope not, sometimes it pays to be a wimp.

at least you were doing something worth a story. the neighbor kid is wearing a new cast from goofing off and falling off the couch!

where is the photo of the Rickman? I saw the ad, but this was a bad month to buy anything. besides, you may have already grabbed it by the time I saw it. I have a body work less Rickman Montessa and was really tempted by the ad. JB

...caused any additional damage but it sure hurt like hell to shift. I'm sure riding the rest of the day and walking on it for another day and a half didn't help matters.

Sorry to hear of the mishap. I feel a little responsible, after giving the 530 such a glowing review on bob's ride in La Porte when you were looking for alternative to the KLR tonnage. Let me know if you want to sell it cheap. ;-) BTW, I run 13/52, low enough for trials speeds in 1st and will still do the ton. Haven't fallen over and trapped my leg since last Saturday!

Heal up soon.

Won't be for sale anytime soon, it makes me when I ride it. It will be parked for awhile and the sale of the KLR will be delayed. Kind of hard to do anything on a non-walking cast.

Ok, here's the few pics I have.
first pic is after my mishap and where we should have called it a day but we really were only about an hour into it. I didn't want to ruin everybody elses day but in reality I feel like I kind of became a hinderance.




Down at the creek taking a break.


What my foot looked like after riding all day on it and walking on it all day Sunday.


Where I'm at now after spending all day Monday at the docs.

Bring a good pen, You might want to get it signed.

I can't get anyone in for free at the AHRMA event, However at my Pits event you all get a free pass. I have two Trials events that weekend and will probably pull up and run down South after the Saturday Trials and skip the MX on Sunday. I put in a sore effort at the last Class A Trial after winning on Saturday. So I have some ground to catch up on Sunday's.
Hey Hop-Sing, stopped out there on my "long way home" from work about one hour ago looking for you. Appears to have a lot of bikes/moho's showing up tonight.
Anybody interested in riding out there tomorrow for an hour or so and check things out? I've got work to do on the ranch so can't run around all day but thinking it would be fun to go out eat some lunch and watch some trials!

Oh, and nice cankel Brein!

Matt

I was hoping it would rain again anyway before I have start digging. Thanks Matt for giving me an option to weight against. Hope to see you out there, but like you I don't want to spend too much time. Its hard watching other people riding motorcycles on such a beautiful day and in a great area for any kind of riding. If you happen to see this before I go you mentioned lunch. Do they have a food vendor out there?

The local fire department is doing food at the races.
This is the first AHRMA race ever out there,it should be a good turnout,guys are hauling from a long ways away for this one.
