    Good to hear you are OK.

    I went through the road versus track thing. Both are fun but the track can also bite hard. I started racing in my late 40s when the roads just got too crowded and scary. But my competitiveness outdid my skill and eventually I broke my pelvis with a high side and I promise you that hurts !!

    So I try to ride my 850 on dry sunny days and recently bought a DR650 to do some adventure touring in the back roads of the Southern Alps. The South Island of New Zealand is quieter than the north much of the time. Apart from tourists on the wrong side of the roads !!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm in Granbury, sw of FW.
    Going in for knee surgery next month so not to much riding right now. Hope to be able to make it to Dolores Colorado for the annual Western Slope Norton Riders get together.
