    Sidewalk and I chased each other through Sycamore tonight. I got a little randy and lost the front end in a corner. Skidding to a stop on my left side. Some road rash and a slight bump to the head. All is good. Can't what til Thursday to get a bit of redemption.

    Riding slightly out of control and crashing sometimes comes with the territory when you want to be first. What ya gonna do? Hopefully not get a spine or brain injury.

    Heal Up, That time of year, some of my normal high speed corners are a very sketchy, concrete hard underneath with the thin powder on top...

    Yeah, I noticed that lately too. Loose over hard...been having some sketchy moments in the corners. Getting a lot of push in the loose turns....be safe out there!

    Ha ha, I literally just used this exact same phrase before seeing this post. I'm spending too much time around you.
