Dan Ortega

Anyone know what's going on with Dan? Is he going to race any more? I hope his recovery went well.

I think keeping him away from the race track would be a pretty difficult task. I'm sure he'll be out at the local scene this year. I wonder if he's running Road America AMA.

Well the recovery is still on going....
As soon as my leg heals I'll be back in the mix. I'm going to try and make AMA road america but that's going to be cutting it close. I just had surgery *again* last monday...I'm hoping it's going to be the last one...

Can you walk around on that Dan? Or do you need crutches?

Go Ringo! Go!

Dan, where are you in the pic you posted? You in a band now? And what, you're trying to play drums?!

Hey, get well bro. Save the metal parts in case it happens again. That way you won't get charged in the future and right now I'm in a silly mood so I'll leave it at that.

Wish I could've taken pics for ya. But I'm sure there are plenty of ya riding on the track.

PEACE!

Dan...Glad to hear your healing well. It's always fun seeing the local pros mixing it up in the AMA. It just didn't seem right watching the Daytona races with no 966!

Dan, I was wondering how you were doing. Glad to see that you are making progress. Damn, that is a lot of hardware. Still looks painful...

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Thank for the update. I'm glad your healing is progressing. I've done a lot of riding since I was at your house last spring. I've actually got stories of my own to share now!
