I raced motocross in district 23.
Made A class in 2005 , Which was a long term goal.
Then all my racing buddies stopped racing and I focused more on San Soo Kungfu .
Had a bad collision riding last summer with my kid . Broke my jaw in 2 places and messed up my right hand.
Cracked a few teeth and broke 2 teeth off .
Just got 2 implant anchors put in and have to wait a couple of months for those to heal.
Had surgery on my right thumb , But still having problems with my hand.
My son got a broken wrist and 5 stiches in his cheek.
After 100s of races, Worst moto injuries I ever got.

Wow glad to see you still here. Hope your son recovers as well. I havent taken the big spill yet. Just a few minor with no breaks just bruises.

Thats why I stopped riding motorcycles...too many close calls that would have eventually turned into the "big spill" at some point...guess I'm getting old...sigh!

Kid healed up fine in 6 weeks.
This was the only crash that put me in the hospital for a 3 day stay.
Thing is I always dress for the crash.
What ever broke my jaw came up under my helmet .

What bike do you race? What are your top speeds?

I was riding with my buddy, Jim, when a 90-year old man ran a stop sign. My front wheel impacted the left front wheel of his Olds 98. My bike and I cartwheeled over his hood and onto the pavement. The bike was destroyed and I suffered broken bones and some serious "road rash."

I've been down 3 times 2 were pretty minor.
Last one was my front tire blew and I think I slowed down to 70 mph before I hit the pavement.

I still haven't learned my lesson. Still ride year round even in bad weather.

War stories?
I T-boned an 85 year old man in his '75 Cadillac turning left in front of me.

The End
