Friday Fox Valley

Hey

Fox Valley is going to be open tomorrow from 12-6. I'm not 100% in yet but, if I can swing it I am going. This will be my last ride for a while so, I need to take advantage.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

I have a benign brain tumor and next Thursday, I am having surgery. It is attached to my ear nerve between the brain and inner ear. I might lose hearing in my right ear. At least that is the side the pipe is on. My recover will be about a month.

Are you in for tomorrow?

Thanks. I am very confident that all will be good. Outside of losing my hearing in one ear and a big ass scar, I will be fine. Trust me, when they tell you that it is not cancer, losing some hearing and a scar are nothing.

That does not work for me - Any chance I can get you up to the Burbs for this?

Seriously man, keep us posted

Take care and ride safe,

Had a good ride yesterday with Steve and Dave. The MX track sucked but the woods were fun. Had 3 or 4 crashes. Typically day

Take care and ride safe

Hey B...You hang in there...you'll will be in my prayers for a quick recovery and that all goes well. Like Bug said...keep us posted. I want to get out and ride with you when you're back at it!

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
