Some truth here. It's not the fall, it's the sudden stop at the end.

Or just another case of impact poisoning.

True story. I once knew a guy who survived a fall from the 73rd floor of a balcony in Chicago. It was the sudden stop at the end of the fall that did him in!

I suspect Eric will be back up and running by the fall riding season. No pun intended.

Uh, you would probably get a better response if you actually put a date for the ride.

Sounds like fun

Sounds like a fun ride, but I'm going to be riding up to Flagstaff that day to see a good friend graduate from NAU that day. I hope all goes well for you. Ride skillfully.

The Ride:
Saturday, May 12th
0800 Meet at Silke's Grill http://www.silkesamericangrill.com/
NW Corner of Gilbert and McKellips (There is a Circle K on the SE corner if you need gas)
Kick stands up by 0900
Ride to Payson where we gas up and get a quick drink
Continue north and head down the FR300
After the FR300 we will assess the time/weather and those needing to get home early will
have an opportunity to head down the 260 and ride home. Those wishing to ride on can
head west on the 260 and turn off on the Control Road (NF64) continuing on to Houston
Mesa rd and arriving back in Payson for Lunch/Dinner or ride home depending on time
or group mood.

Info about the ride:

This ride will be Big Bike and Old Fart friendly. If you feel the need for speed we don't mind you coming with just anticipate a very long wait for us at the end of the trail. I ride very slow and stop to take pictures. I like to look at the scenery that we ride by. I am old and have to stop and pee more than most people. If this sounds like fun then come join us. If this sounds boring as hell thanks for reading.

I must learn this "skillfully" thing you speak of!

Take care Everyone, Eric.

That's some pretty good company I am with there!!

Poor Trey, didn't he re-break his femer again!! That's gotta hurt! RV's get-off did not look bad at all, must have just hit just right. Reed on the other hand deserves the Iron Man award! His first big crash(in out door's) was spectactular to say the least! Man, that was pain full to watch! And he gets right up!!

and don't forget Kdub, that was a hard one too!

Your right 'Dos, I have skills....... I just hope to not use these same ones again anytime soon!!
