Was checking on this thread and noticed it hit 100,000 views. smile

SimHQ isn't really the target audience for this kinda stuff...so that's surprising. I know a lot of the views are most likely bots or search spiders? Not sure...but cool none the less.

Thanks to the folks here that have been checking in on an old guy trying to race motocross! salute

I can’t tell you how impressed with you starting this endeavor. Very cool. I’m praying that you never have bad injuries. At our age we don’t bounce back the way we used to.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

I appreciate that a lot OG...thank you! Prayers are most certainly welcome! I was raised going to church, though I'm not overtly religious at this time of my life...and my Mom prays for me before every race and ride!

I actually get a little nervous if I text her I'm riding/racing and she doesn't respond with a "Prayers sent" text right away...lol. I've raced in 6 seasons of motocross now (5 years) and have yet to break a bone or require a hospital visit...that is extremely rare.

Motocross doesn't discriminate...everyone gets hurt. Doesn't matter if you're the fastest pro or the slowest squid...happens to all. I've been extremely lucky. I've accepted it's going to happen sooner or later...it's like waiting for the other shoe to drop though!

I've been hurt...but not hospital injured. As i'm lip skidding into 55 years old soon...not sure how long the old body can keep it up. I have been toning it way back lately.

Thanks for checking out the vids! smile
