No it wasn't, the front washed out and wasn't quick enough to ride out of it.

Were you jumping, or what?

...And I thought I was always on the "injured" list.

Hope you wore protection on that date!

Tell me about it, I will know if anything is torn tomorrow at 1 pm ET. I'm still holding out for it being badly bruised.

Take note I was wearing armour as well. So to state it, I guess I don't get along with armour, hurt my ribs, I was wearing armor, busted my hand up twice was wearing armour, hurt my shoulder, was wearing armour. Anyone want a set of Fox Pads for cheap?

tranny: short for transition. An up or down slope, usually preceding or immediately following a jump.

shuttling: using a motorized vehicle to transport bikes and riders to the trailhead, usually to maximize downhill riding time.

Glad to hear you're okay Kona.

You could be covered from head to toe literally with poison ivy like I am from a wreck.

It's on my friggon eyelids if that tells you anything.

Good luck with the shoulder bro, been there done that.

Well, I just stacked the Gimp on my third run of the clay forest. The bike is fine, cause I caught the cockpit as we both hit the ground. (I endoed the front wheel trying to power through the log section, instead of jumping it).

The bike flipped three times, I lost some more skin. Tomorrow I'll remember to lift that front wheel, and trust gravity!

Kona, you wanna sell me that Fox armour? I'm tired of being a skin donor, and I'm freeridin'. Thanks.

An old friend of mine made the mistake of scratching himself (like a baseball player) with PI on his hands . I hope that makes you feel better
