Oh, that was a good time. altered my life forever.

I've all but given up on motorized bikes. aside from racing a few times a year on the track, i don't have much interest in them at all anymore.
Nothing wrong with that, there comes a time when you have to say to yourself 'I just can't take another body whack' and stop doing the things that have a high risk of one.

I am already there.

I'll ride some of my creations around the block and such but my help does all the real testing these days as I don't want to spend the remainder of my life in a wheelchair or worse and I'm this --> <-- close to that as it is.
