Hope he heals quickly and learns something quickly.

Did you see the Colbert report and the “dirt bike Baddass in the Lincoln tunnel” It’s funny.

I think that I’m in love with my helmet even more, after seeing what happened to him.

I wonder how the poor girl on the back is doing.

I just upgraded my helmet this weekend with my IRS Discrepancy (I don’t call it a refund). Scorpion EXO700 will now be used for the car. I hope it’s considered tasteful to wear Marco Simoncelli’s helmet. I was considering buying it right before he had his fatal crash, and then I couldn’t do it. I now decided it’s okay.

Dear Bolty:

I have started reading your posts again, even though the really technical ones hardly apply to me, because of your content, style, and purity of data. And it’s not that every really stopped, but they got scarce.

I regret to report I will not be riding for a bit owing to a few personal setbacks, including a condition that has me bedridden or confined to a chair for three months, 60 days of which has passed.

Regarding Bobby Petrino, I can understand how a 51-year-old man would take great risks to run around with a 25-year-old fire cracker, and hope I am some day given the opportunity to make a similar mistake. But there is no excuse for riding around without a full-face helmet. That’s just stupid. In fact, he should have worn the helmet when catting around with the woman too.

Fondest regards,
Twisted Roads
