sorry for my crappy typing, i can only use one finger :cool:




Looks like you were riding pretty good right before the crash. Had that rhythm section down. Just one of those 'who know's' what caused it wrecks.
Heal fast- glad you weren't hurt worse. :applause:

except i didnt hit my head at all....... why do you guys have to be such smart asses? its sad especially from you grey of all people i totally respect you and look for your opinions on things because you know your shit...... but it seems like you pick and choose who you are nice to on here, i could be completely wrong but i dont appreciate either of your guys' "suggestions"

and sorry if i didnt get what you guys meant or your sarcasm if it was intended differently which i doubt but I didnt get a concussion or hit my head at all.... if thats wut your implying. why cant you just stay on the subject? I asked for thoughts on mods, not if you think I hit my damn head.

Who suggested that you hit your head, and why do you regard a suggestion that you buy a helmet as either unfathomable or a smart ass remark? Helmets should be replaced periodically, whether impacted or not, and they're certainly more important colored coolant hoses. Or don't you agree?

o i agree with that but i bought that helmet 2 months ago i dont really think it needs to be replaced yet, like i stated before i could have read that wrong which i guess i did. im sorry for that. but the rolling eyes made it seem like a smart ass comment. i thought the guy was suggesting a helmet was implying i hit my head in my fall maybe.... thus making maybe what he thought was a stupid thread...

Well, since most of us don't hang out with you very often, a lot of guys were probably unaware of your recent helmet purchase. And, it may well be that a fairly large number weren't interested enough to watch yet another crash video, and so may not have been aware of whether you hit your head or not, or, if they did watch it, simply couldn't tell. To me, your response to CS was more defensive/combative/provocative than his simple suggestion that you buy a helmet. Sometimes it's better just to ignore stuff.

As long as we're on this, and you brought it up, do you think it's a "stupid thread"? Obviously not, but apparently you have some sensitivity that some might think so. Why? Your bike already has enough bling on it for two bikes, and it seems to me that except for the fact that it won't do anything to stave off your boredom, a wiser use of your money would be in setting it aside for your next bike, or truck, or a house of your own, or your eventual retirement (saving $4k/yr at 7% would make you a millionaire by the age of 65). But that's only my perspective, and everyone knows what an old grouch I am.

ok well you make very good points and i cant argue with that, except for the last part

the money thing im well aware of, i already have a house payment, and a new bobcat payment coming soon, and a new bike in the summe. and its all funded by me. Im not a kid who just spends all his money on a bike, i own a business with my brother and we have been fortunate enough to make it pretty damn successful that we both make a living off of it. I know what and how much i can spend on motocross and it may seem like alot of stuff but the thing is i can afford it. ne ways i was just looking for options suggestions, you see all these big threads of people building bikes and people watching the progess of it. i wanted to make this kind of like those.....im not asking for a life lesson here, you dont know my background obviously like you already stated, so why question it? just stick with the subject please.


the sad thing is this all started with the rolling eyes which to me was not funny im sorry, it would have been fine with out that.

and yes i already have a leatt :cool:

enough of this, just tell me some parts! lol

Good for you. That's the only path you can really take to personal wealth if you can't inherit it. :cool:

I've had great success with hotcams and highly recommend them. I have heard a lot of good things about them. They also take customer service very serious so if you do have a problem they will make it right.
