I'm not so sure about that Shelby, this last one is still very fresh in my mind. I'm healed now but it hurts everyday. I think it will take a few miles of accident free riding to get any speed back.
Chris, I plan on doing at least three or four track day with the old man this year so I'm sure we will run into each other at one of these tracks within the four state area. :)
The short story about the hand is simple.... I told Rick I could do it so all summer he would go into a corner and act like he was going to drag a hand.... SO..... when the camera presented itself I took advantage and got the pic made.
The bike is complete and better than it was before the accident so once it warms up some I plan on getting back in the saddle and giving the mountain a couple of runs. There no place better than home to get over the fear.....
