stick 2 forks in me, I'm fukin done.

So this morning, come out of a gas station on dempster, hit 2nd, and suddenly my rear wheel is about 50 to 60 degrees out of alignment from my front tire because my tires suck and it was a little wet. SO, when I lay off the throttle and the bike realignes, I'm almost high-sided. FUN TIMES....Fast forward to an hour ago, when I decided I am Rossi. So getting onto 294N from 290S, some 25 mph curve, I'm doing like 60, hanging off, thinking I"m as cool as the other side of the pillow, and enter apex to see huge hole. At least it looked huge. So I brake, straighten my turn, too fast to keep it on the road, hit a great big rut off the other side of the road, catch a little air, bang my shin off my rearset, somehow don't crash, some lady is looking at me like "look at this idiot"......Well she was right. I"m done for today....Now start the "thou art better than me for not being stupid comments"...

I was wearing leather armored jacket, helmet, gloves, timberland boots, jeans, and backpack. Also northface tee-shirt, wife beater underneath, and the ever comfy hanes under the jeans.

that is why there are race tracks.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

that just means you have less than a month to get one. No way is she going to do anything to call off the wedding. Plus tell her you are doing this to keep yourself safe for her.
