QUOTE=Tn. Walrus;19440419]Update: Last week, after I was cleared to ride I had a full up crash. I got high sided at about 30 mph and flew about 15-20 feet before landing. Klim gear did it's job, but I completed the tear. Yesterday I had surgery to re-attatch me distal biceps tendon. I now have a three month recovery ahead of me. No word yet on how bad the bike damage is. Should get that and an insurance verdict next week. It seems I am snake bit right now.

I have no choice. I will be the one armed man for at least 3 months while I heal from this.

Great video ! Dang about the first pull and later crash . Might I suggest thinking about setting yourself up with something similar to Ratman's setup ? Now you just have to decide what light weight dual sport to load on a trailer . Heal well and quickly !

Hello Mr. Walrus.

Nice video.
You listen to the same kind of music I do!

It's too bad we didn't get to meet up.
But fortunately, there can be a next time.

Heal up well, stop crashing, and I'll see you next year.

Q~
