Best of luck with your recovery Richard.

Rest, think good thoughts and get well soon.

I'm glad you're okay.
My sister-in-law just got a motocycle last week. We think she's crazy to get one in LA.
She can't even drive a manual car and she goes out and buys a 650 Ducati. She's all proud that she's completely "black" (black pants, jacket and helmet).

Holy Cow, Richard, I'm just glad it wasn't any worse than that. Could have been a lot worse! Will be sending you an email re: some stuff we've been talking about. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery,

I grew up in a family where motorcycling was a part of life. Two older brothers raced supercross professionally and we've ALL had a crap-load of street bikes and dirt bikes... including my sister. There are only TWO types of motorcycle riders... those that have crashed... and those that will. It's inevitable. 100% guaranteed.
I crashed my R1 (my fourth crotch-rocket) within 6 months of getting it.
Crashing sucks. Pain sucks... but motorcycles will always be cool because of this very circumstance... even the slowest bike 'aint your grandma's Volvo. It takes a different kind of person to accept the risk and ride a bike.
You just went up a couple notches on my respect scale Richard... sorry about the crash... may you heal fully and quickly.

I used to race motocross on a YZ465. In it's day, it was one helluva ride. Did my knee several times...most painful thing, next to a divorce, anyway.
Curiously, in those moments when you realize there's a sudden stop at the end of the journey thru the air you're taking, time goes into freeze frame slo-mo. A series of kodak instant moments until the final bang.
Recover, climb back on the dragon.
April 11th, 2005, 08:34 AM
funny but very close friends call me dragon. and i plan to get back on soon or as soon as I can get a new one and figure out the hospital bill thing.
it will take time to heal - another op on left ankle this week to remove pins and seal up hole.....
stanford hospital is awesome.
great staff...nurses ect.

<<<-- mercury in retro another week... -->>>
Are you also an astronomy fan? And you've noticed that as we approach the vernal equinox that our proximity to the sun is creating the illusion of retrograde motion in the planet Mercury?
Okay forgive me I'm dumb... what does "mercury in retro another week..." mean?
April 11th, 2005, 08:52 AM
i only have one working hand but
all hell breaks loose, communication breakdown, bad time to make big decisions ect
computer problems ect
i just know talking to chimera hard
i was like what the hell is going on
and a friend said merc in retro

Get well Richard! We miss your unique posts.
April 11th, 2005, 09:59 AM
so even if you are kidding don't go there
asking questions and being nosey with respect is how i learned just about all i know.
i usedto walk around nyu eventhough i did not attend and look for open doors and ask?
can i watch
please forgive my interuption but what are you doing?
my advise is ask with respect and respect the gift they may give u which is their time knowledge
most people like to help..just look at this great website!
what not to do...
plop yourself in a chair uninvited and start touching things
you rock matt
always b learning

OUCH! Sorry to hear of your spill Richard, get well quick!
It does make me laugh to hear someone other than my mom talk about "Mercury in retrograde". It must be more of a California thing, growing up there I am use to people saying things like that. :) in fact, I'll surround you in white light Richard! *grin*
April 14th, 2005, 09:22 AM
Sounds bad, but I'm sure you'll recover! While you're getting better, you could make a little documentary on your recovery.
April 14th, 2005, 10:12 AM
yea california does put the white light zap on my head sometimes
thanks guys for your thoughts and lovin sarcasm
pins come out of my ankle in a few hours
uh uh nope still have pins in the left ankle for now
they did somthing though

now the leg eh? --scarface
and santa cruz is hippyville
they cast lots of people from sc for master/commander
since they needed long hair, 18th century types

Only the stubborn pig headed part. It's a Patton thing.
Oh and sorry for off-topic, but is Santa Cruz still a 60's flashback? Grew up there but have not been back in some 10 years. I love Santa Cruz better than anywhere in that area, it was so uniquely "Dead".

Sorry to hear of your spill, good luck and heal quickly!
