Back home, great to see and ride with the crew again. Marathon ride Saturday to Pioneertown. First we lost KTAmi to a crash, best wishes to Ami for a quick recovery.

I followed an unknown (to me) rider for a few miles, and was very impressed with his riding skill, that was Slideways.


Our group suffered 2 flat tires, and ended up riding back in the dark. Bad for me with a burned out low beam, and a high beam that lit the sky but not the road. Big thanks to Ersin, and KLRrob for lighting the way for me. I still came close to hitting a truck .

Thanks for driving, Joel.

They usually run about $15K. Better to go to your local airport and pay a couple hundred for a joy ride.

It's not a Pioneer Town ride unless someone get air lifted out! Ami heal up fast buddy. Over all it was a nice weekend with all the making of an ADV ride.
1. Crash in the sand in the first 10 mins and screw up my shoulder (Check)
2. Everyone split and lose each other (check)
3. Watch Biggie change a flat tire (3rd time is a charm) (check)
4. Get home in the dark (check)

Good to see that we ADV riders take good care of a fallen rider. Looks like you all knew exactly what to do and Ami was in good hands.

+1 on what Mike said, I'm guilty of procrastinating Going to order my brace tomorrow.

Pioneer Town Double Helicopter Ride

Thank you guys for the support, BTW it happened when i was riding slow ' no rules in crashes'
special thanks to Ittay, Ersin, Lior, Danny and the rest of the guys who stayed talked with 911 until i was evacuated and thanks for visiting me at the hospital yesterday. I must say - the Spot worked spotless!!, the chopper came in less than 15 min and the crew starting with the ranger, paramedics,doctors etc. were Amazing!!! I had a punctured lung from a broken rib, it seems I fell on good size rock which penetrated the protection so three ribs broke and on of them punctured a small hole in the lung. The air created pressure and the lung collapsed. so... they inserted a tube to release the pressure. Liver, kidneys, and the rest of the vital organs are fine and i can truly say I've got lucky. five minutes ago they pulled the tube out of my lung and I will leave the hospital tomorrow, according to the doctors its fully recoverable. i must mention it again as I was so impressed with the speed and professional care of the medical crew, hope non of you will never need to experience that.

THANK YOU ALL
