Lol... not fixed just quite yet. I think it will be at least a month or so before I can even get on a bike again.Hey Bill,
Nathan (my son) was wondering if you were fixed yet? he wants to go for a ride and thought it would be fun if you were there.. also he was up set that the rocks made you fall and to watch out for the bad rocks next time.. but its cool you got to ride in a chopper.. so there you have incite of at 7 yr old..
I too had a trailer at ES and would like to chime in with my prospective about the trailers. On three occasions in the past I have hauled a disabled bike back home for some unfortunate rider. I feel I am very familiar in what it takes to arrange for the transportation of a disabled bike.Like I said in the other post, I learned who to count on and more importantly, who NOT to count on. No names need to be listed, but I'm sure they know who they are.
I'd be a hypocrite to say no! As long as someone can get their feet down on the beast, they are welcome to take it for a spin.Rebecca if you are ever up in the Little Rock area my mom
lives in the area and always welcome wayward travelers that
are riding buddies of mine, careful she may take your bike
for a spin herself
OK. This is a very cool bridge.OK, let's move on to more pleasant matters.
We went on a leisurely loop not too far from ES, then ended coming back through town again in search of the Beaver Bridge. We eventually found it took the opportunity to get a drink of water and take a few pics.
No prob, dude. I looked everywhere for you, thinking it would be easy to spot your blue Rex, but it wasn't to be. Oh well, one of these days...Wayne I think you were at the hotel when we
got back from our ride on Friday but by the time I
got back out of my room (had to check on my daughters
gymnastics competition) you were gone, so I never got to meet you.
WOW!! That is amazing. When we had our little get off by Eureka Springs - http://motoadrenaline.blogspot.com/2006/09/eureka-springs-ouch.html[rant]
Funny thing about the trailers. Yes, there were trucks and trailers back at the hotel, but nobody in the group was willing to cut their day short to head back to ES to get one. My wife was there in her dad's pickup, but I was unable to reach her (no signal I guess). I finally did reach her late that afternoon and when she got back in to town, Bill, Keith and I made arrangements to go get Bill's bike with the pickup. We had to wait a while to get the keys for the bike and lock from Bill, and so it was pretty late when we got started. We didn't get back to the hotel until almost 2:00am. Bottom line is the trip into the hills in the middle of the night could have been avoided if someone had stepped up and headed back to the hotel right after the crash.
You do know that I'm going to keep repeating this to myself over and over again for the next week, don't you??? Thanks for the encouraging words, because when it comes to surgery, I really am quite a baby.Surgery isn't a bad thing sometimes. It actually has a faster recovery time in many cases since the bones are already fixated.
WOW! That's an ingenious way to carry a flask of whiskey...Surgery isn't a bad thing sometimes. It actually has a faster recovery time in many cases since the bones are already fixated. My right humeus looks like this:
No sympathy! Even before the first responders were there he was asking us to get the cameras snapping!And my sympathy that all those pics were taken of your event which will follow you all the days of your life...
Roger,Well, it was a long, and somewhat wet, ride home. It was good to meet everyone, I don't recall all the names, but I could match you to your bike. I learn something new on each trip I take, and after the mishap Saturday, it really had me wondering what I would do if the same situation happened to me, that far from home. Not just on this ride but any ride 300 plus miles from home. I think, I too, will plan on hualing up in the future, as I don't have anyone to call to drive 600 miles to pick me up. Anyway, I had a good time, thanks for letting me ride along.
Hey Marco, invest in a copy of Keith Codes, Twist of the Wrist II, he can explain it a lot better than I can. I enjoyed riding with you, hope to do it again.Roger,
Thanks for your advice on turns. As soon as I fix the bike I'm going to practice what you said. I'm looking for a trailer also. On Monday, I wasn't in
the mood to ride back to Dallas. Thank Doug(?) for his help also. Maybe, I'll see y'all on the next ride.
