I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon.

I bet that left a mark. Posted Image I've seen a few pics of KTM's that look like that. Who knows what the guy was trying to do on the thing. He may have had a Ricky Carmichael moment. :lol:

So you really like your Repsol CBR? I took these photos...poor guy on a nice Repsol CBR that got taken out by a car. Thankfully, his injuries weren't all that bad considering....I was worried sick he was dead. Bike was in pieces though.....

Ahh, Howie, :wub:
I would be downright *proud* to have a bike like this for yard art!
Actually, I've not had one snap like that, but I did fracture and open up a steering head on an old Yamaha DT1..

The kid has a great storyline.. popped a couple of Vics then had to hike out 15 miles.
He's still recovering from a freaking horrific accident where he broke the femur.
Man, I know how that feels..

Finished reading the ADV thread last night. The kid definitely writes well and can weave a nice story.

Can't wait to read the South America adventure.
