Of course I know what happens. My cousin also gave up dirtbikes because he broke his arm -- and had to get like a bunch of screws in it and stuff, and we have a bunch of wipe outs on old home videos, one in particular was when my uncle was trying to go up this incline that was insane, on a 250cc suzuki. It was close to 90 degrees, no joke, well thats probably exaggerating, but it was damn close. People on ATV's and buggies thought he was nuts, he went up it quite fast and ended up making it close to the top, and he couldn't go any further, and he came down, with the bike right on top of him...the trip to the hospital was pretty crappy. I was going to send that one into RealTV a while ago, but never got around to it.

Believe Greg when he says stick to computers. From motocross, I have had two operations on my left knee from getting my boot caught in a rut during a race when I was 16, from surfing I have had my right shoulder reconstructed from being caught in a barrel that shut down one me when I was 25, and from snowboarding I have had my left shoulder reconstructed from catching an edge on an icey landing in a big air competition. Now that I am old, at least in the terms of action sports (32) I don't heal as well as I used to. And people still ask me if I'd rather be riding than shooting.

Good to have you aboard Greg, good luck with part II

Don't get me wrong bro, I'm still out there every chance I get, but I've swapped a competitive career for a couple of cameras.

I'm going on 39, and only do that extreme stuff under EXTREME protest. I used to do it for fun, but I just don't shake it off like I used to. It sucks to wake up in agony every day, especially when the aches and pains are from years ago, not yesterday.
