Mike #86 is staying in Amt. till he wins again.
Give Tom a run for it at Sarival.
I'll be there to cheer you on.
I can't wait till I can ride again!!!!!
Picked up my CTi2 today, now I just gotta get healed up.
Did you get your Asteriks? I am going to order one for the "good knee".

Yea, I got the call to move up from triple A to the Bigs yesterday. Guess I'll be dicing with you once you get healed. I'll just have to gun for Wing-man and the rest of the Experts until you're back on the scene.
I knew this was coming sooner or later, just hope I can bring home some hardware now and then now...
Got my Asterisks on Saturday, still need to adjust them but they appear to be very well made.
See you at Sarival on Sunday.

Have fun at SW, you should think about coming to Sarival on Sunday. The club is giving away 2 entry fees to one of the CA OT races in October. You have to be there to be entered in the drawing.

How 'bout you, Maico?
X, you will have to work hard to stay with Tom. He doesn't like to jump but he sure wicks up that 500 everywhere else. I think we will have some good races when I return, looking forward to it!
RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!

On a different note I had a pretty big crash last week, can't even remember when my last "good one" was. I'm looking at it in a way that I "was due", just to keep me honest.
My front end knifed in 4th gear heading INTO the big mound jump. Pummeled me right into the face, and I got pretty banged up and was thru for the day. I contribute it to two things:
1) I stayed up all night w/o sleeping as I wasn't sure I was going or not. Was washing my bike at 2am in the morning to leave at 4:30. Yea I know it was pretty stupid of me and I won't be doing that again.
2) The front tire on my 20" is too small and my front end is constantly over-steering. I have just purchased a monster M-59 Bridgestone that is actually taller than a 21"!! That should cure that problem, as so far I have not been happy with the 20" wheel, now with the extra meat I can run lower psi and get more traction to the ground which is why I went with the 20 in the first place.
Good Luck on Sunday guys and say hi to the gang for me. Hope your feeling better F-Pilot.

I know what you mean about being due! I hope this knee counts even though I didn't hit the ground because its been awhile for me too!
New biz? As in self-employed? Good to hear you got something going.

Yea I thought I was 16 again by staying up all night and going riding. The problem with AZ in the summer is you havta get up at 3:45am to be at the track by 6!!!! Wasn't sure I was going so at 2am (I was up anyway) I decided to wash my bike and clean my air filter!!! LOL
Knifing the front-end means your bike is over steering.
My crash went like this I was coming out of the pit jump on the far end of the track heading into the big camelback hump. Dan had disked the track really good and if you went off the main line it was really soft dirt.
Went to go around a slower rider and wasn't prepared for the soft terrain. My front end knifed (turned sharply to the right) and catapulted me into the face of the jump!!
Never saw it coming; next thing I know is I'm on all fours gasping for air!! LOL
Got the usual road rash and banged up my shoulder pretty good. I have no idea why anyone would ever ride w/o shoulder pads cuz surely I would have broken something w/o them.
Thx Yea I'm tired of corporate America and all the bs and layoffs that go with it. I am trying a new career (Personal Financial Analyst) and so far things are going great! I have done 6 Re-Finance Loans and saving my friends and neighbors a lot of $$ and getting them out of their mortgages 8-15 yrs earlier. If you know anyone who is purchasing a new home, needs a Re-Fi, or Investment advise have them give me a call. We are aggressively hiring part time and full time people too!
Spread the word to the AZOTMXers too!
