    Hey now, I'm the momma. I don't want hear about these things.

    In America legal drinking age is 21 so he isn't heading to the bars yet. But he has been telling everyone his story. He is normally reserved not wanting to be the center of attention (he usually leaves that for his sister), but this time not so much. He works on campus and they had a meeting Saturday morning. I think it ended up being Greg retelling his crash story. Yes, chicks dig bikes & bikers (I should know I married to one heehee).

    Awwwww, he'll always be your baby, even when he's got his own. Lol

    Such a waste of the best drinking years! You need your youth for proper hangover control.

    Like father like son no doubt, if his dad can pull it off, he should have no worries! Lol

    So glad to hear your son will be ok. Totally understand what it's like from the parent point of view Mom, scary stuff. .

    Hwy 49 is so fun but can bite fast, sounds like he needs to work on holding his line while staying right but he will ride another day-that's a real good thing!

    I agree with you...winter sand sucks!!!!


    Burning fossil fuel and loving it!!

    We hope he learned his lesson. He was riding above his skill level. Over confident (20 year old Male syndrome). He will be doing some reading over the winter to make sure he learned his lesson. Also, no collison insurance so we have to repair bike on our own. He will be spending the winter finding parts off of EBAY, etc. He'll have to figure out what needs to replaced and do the work. Dad will help him. Good experience for him as well as some good consequences. Hit the boy in the wallet. That'll hurt. We'll help some but he has to contribute.

    Why not have Greg join this forum. The forum is a great source of information and can be used a a learning tool by reading some of the crashed or almost crashed threads. The gear test thread posted by your husband on the other forum was quite active.

    Oh, Greg will be reading the SSA posts for sure. We are letting him heal up and we have company coming for the Nugget Rib Cook Off this weekend, so he will be getting more "teaching" and reading coming up. He just started a semester at UNR too so he won't be riding any time soon.

    His accident was rider error and could have been prevented - he agrees - so he will learn from this incident and go on. Hopefully, we don't repeat this event again. If so, we might be making some changes.

    Yep, we're going today (Saturday). With the cooler temps, it's going to be packed. ugh! Warning, don't go Monday unless you want to be packed in with a bunch of smelly, dirt burners coming off the playa.

    Did you see any Burners coming into town last week? Interesting, eh? You can recognize which vehicles are leaving Burning Man by the layer of thick white dust on their vehicles and because they are broken down on the side of the road. Avoid them at all costs. If they aren't high, they are exhausted from a week of partying. Most leave town by Monday, but some hang around for another week or so. Be aware. This group is almost as bad as the H-D riders during Street Vibrations.

    Re: Not my shame. but I'll share

    I know this road Monica - I worked in the USFS for years up around there and I hit black ice a couple times on 49. Love that ride up to Sierra City and over to Graeagle! Hope your sons heals up and gets back in the saddle.
