Default Welcome Back to Motocross

Ok I'm not 20 anymore but it's sure fun until some **** happens. I was following a kid over a triple and all was well until he goosed the throttle at the last second and I didn't quite keep up and I'm now like a falling brick - falling in the wrong landing spot.. short of the landing. I figured this would hurt a little but my rear suspension was set up too soft and wham shock bottoms, seat cushion isn't much help and my vertebrae meet the term compression. Ouch. I fractured the Lumbar 1 and 2 - one of them slightly, the other pretty much in pieces. No surgery yet - if this heals I should be good, after a 3 month recovery. I guess I won't be attempting that jump again until I get a better lead jumper and get my suspension dialed in.

I have a few more weeks of recovery - hope to see you all soon.

Scott

Ouch! That's a young man's game.

To quote the great Warren Zevon:

I'm too old to die young and too young to die now.

Yep, I tried a much smaller version of that and I actually saw stars. Several spectators thought of calling a mortician, after they caught their breath from laughing so hard.

Dan the watch guy is looking to buy a dirt bike. You should give him a call, let him know how much fun they can be.

Glad your not dead.
