    Hey Guys and Dolls, I've been back for a little wail but just have not felt like posting , anyhow the trip was great until I went to get into the 130 club I let off the gas to fast and went into a high speed wobble and hit the salt at about 115 mph and the gpx 600 is twisted beyond repair and my pride is hurt as bad as my back but the back will for the pride........anyhow I'll post pics soon, the wife got the whole thing on tape......just dont tell the insurance guy......time for more percocet .... night all

    Oh Dude! Glad to see you're still up and around. Did you get the official time or do you get a DQ for crashing?

    So sorry. Dang!
    I am the owner and sometimes user of a good TENS unit for my lower back.
    Hope you heal-up 100% big guy.

    Have to agree with OL Pete a good Tens unit cranked up full will fix that back up in about 8 hours. OK so I like it a little to much...evil laugh...thanks for the pics the Flats and all the great minds that run there. On my wish list of places to go!!
    Take care of yourself

  14. OMG glad to hear you only hurt your soft parts, and nothing in the sensitive spinal area. 140 is FAST man! I went 140 KMPH in Europe recently and then I found out that it's only 82 mph. :(
