Another excellant weekend of riding. Both days turned out to be on the money. :thumbup:
Smaller group of 6 on sat but fun never the less. Easier to keep track.
Sunday all the big boys were out, some hard riding thru some sick ass twisties. About 12 of us.
Next sunday is Mothers day so I am on lock down. So, there is only sat.......again! Hope the weather is nice. :cool: Looking forward to seeing you guys then!

The Aftermath..............

Well, well, well.............we have been lucky so far but I guess your luck runs out sooner or later. We had 2 members go down today. They both are alright thank goodness. You can always get another bike but you have only one BODY!!! ;) I think we were 15-16 deep. Always hard keeping a group of that size together. Heliguy went down on Perkins drive (Bear Mountain) around 10am or so. WE all rode over there to help out. Broken clip on, Tullock rode his bike to Alstare's house with the rest of us following. WE finally are on the road again hitting the mountain (9w storm king) and 1Sictrigger goes down on one of those sick turns. His damage was more severe, we had to pick his bike off of the road. He got an ambulance ride to the hospital. He hit the guard rail an ended in the middle of the road. When you can get up and walk away from a crash like that, the Lord is looking out for you. He could have easily went over the guard rale, where there is a 60-70 foot drop. :headshake We called it a day after that.................

No kidding. After two spills, we all had seen enough. Even though we call it a day at that point, there is still high mileage for us to cover in order to get home.
The weather was BEAUTIFUL today, so it was a great day to be out. Thank goodness those guys are ok. I hope they both post up soon so we can stay in touch and know that all is well. I agree, bikes can be fixed, bodies are alot tougher.

no way

you guys do not need a back protector for Island dragway.
Only Pocono. The leather's we have are perfect!!
Over 120mph on the 1/4 you need pants.
750's maybe, 1000's yes.
If you have leather pants wear em.
Leather jacket is a must.
Over ankle boots, leather gloves, and the kill switch tether,
i posted pics of it last week in this thread, a couple pages back.
Helmet is optional, yeah right! :laughingr
I will post a link to to the dragstrip's website tommorrow.
I will check prices and times, and we will set a meeting time.

Remember my son hurt his ankle on the trampoline, yeah broken in 2 places.
it was huge today, so we took him to the hospital. Cast maybe coming.
No dirt bike riding for a while for him. he's pissed!!! No school for 3 days, he's happy about that.

Tara- cover the back brake, ask paul he saw me 12 and slam it down, i needed some toilet paper after that. :laughingr

Paul-Clinton rd anytime. but there's more! :thumbup:

Shoein- wednesday paul and tara maybe to, they want to go to Motorcycle madness and hit some twisties. I am gonna call them tommorow.

see everybody else next weekend.\

G- i want to come to the crib and hook up the handlebar tommorrow, i will call u tommorow.

BROKEN IN TWO PLACES!!!???

That kid didn't ever want to stop playing! He was still trying to stunt his bike after the trampoline! I think he is ready for the NFL, because he ain't gonna quit. And only 3 days off school for a broken ankle? I think he deserves more than that, if for no other reason, just being so damn tough!!!

Seriously though, I hope he is OK. Rest is the key to healing, and I know it is not easy to keep him off his feet. Let him fire up the Xbox for awhile, because he will heal quickly and get back out there into the air and sun that much quicker.

WOW! I still can't believe it.

was that before or after he slid around the corner in front of the bikes?
he'll be ok, he wasnt letting anything hold him down that day. wait a few years, he'll be the one doin the wheelies down the street and he'll stretch that burnout dad left in front of the house

nope

Paul- u think he's tough, o boy - wait for his sister!! She's my Pitbull!

Wednesday it is! We'll hit up Motorcylce Madness then take a nice 2 hour ride around here. I'll try to plan a decent route. The roads aren't as nice as the ones we hit in New York but there definitely still fun.
