I did have the camera ripped from my helmet but I did loose consciousness fr a few seconds. Hence the memory loss. Christan refuses to watch the video.


Went to Larisas funeral yesterday morning. Full house standing room only. Wonderful people laughing and crying. Later we had a first line in honor of her boyfriends New Orleans heritage and a wig and tu tu party?!!! She wore her heart in her hair


Much love to you all. I'll wear a fairy wig to your death bash too

Small world.....I think everyone knows Amy. I bet we have lots of mutuals..........I wish you had know Larisa. Her boyfriend, JP, owns Vintage ATL. It's that bike shop in east atlanta run out of an airstream behind the old NAPA on Glenwood. He restores vintage bikes. This all went down at Elliot Street Pub. By the way, if you use the new iphone to navigate there, the computer voice pronouces Elliot like E.T.

You should ALWAYS wear that wig

I'm hating these videos. That freaks me out every time I watch it.

SS1 I was feeling good on the first stage.

Looking at the time......I was right where I should be time-wise. Behind Jason and in front of Peter.

Man i am pissed about that sand demon. No reason for your pony to throw you. You were really cruising, though. SOme say a damper is a crutch, but its a crutch I'll gladly use.

Amen! I'd feel a lot safer if Jenna had one. There's a good chance that wreck wouldn't have happened with one. Its the main reason why I want a new fork. I don't think I ride well enough to notice any other suspension differences.

That's what you should do, Jenna. Tell Christian you absolutely NEED a steering damper....for safety ya know?

Have you had any symptoms from the concussion this week? Had a chance to take the bike out for a test run yet?

No major symptons other than headaches. My doc said they're tension headaches from trap. muscles from the crash, so not really related to the concussion. Gave me muscle relaxers which I despise and won't take. I hate pills, and those things make me sleep like crazy. I haven't ridden yet other than the trip up the driveway. Bars are slightly bent but I'm gonna live with that until damper time. I'll ride it tomorrow. Wheel is tru and still balanced. Forks are not twisted in the triples. Amazing.

Jenna- just curious did you have the worst migraine ever after your concussion? I'm asking because yesterday I...trying to follow in your shoes....I got me one of them there concussions too (out for 5 minutes or more), the headache was worse than any migraine I've ever had. Had me blubbering like a 3 year old who had his tricycle taken away. Met up with a goat while going 50 mph, nothing broken on me, not sure about the bike gonna pick it up today. I'm prepared to ride it back, but my parents probably won't have it!!! Sorry no neat video.

ambulance ride to the hospital, still a little foggy today, and sore, the head ache was worse than the muscle pain. Feels like a very bad pulled groin muscle and shoulder, full AGATT, more character marks on the Arai helmet. Getting around pretty well, every now and then a cringe from the leg pain. More worried about the $$$$$ than anything else.

No drugs for me besides some OTC Excedrin for head,
