Jeeze dude sounds like you've had it rough. What the hell were you up to on the dirtbike to cause so much damage anyway?

It's just how I happened to land; all my weight went down on my knee as I was falling in a twisting motion.
Took a turn a little too fast not realizing I was about to hit a patch of loose gravel. Hand got caught under the bike and was crushed.

The bikes belong to my uncle. I'll have to ask him.
I was planning on going back in september to get on the trails again but my knee still isn't fully recovered.
I've been recovered from covid since late march.

Sucks dude, hope you get well soon. If you're ever on a dirt bike expedition in eastern Canada let me know. I'm out on the trails on a daily basis.

Found some old binders with some super old drawings I did as a kid... Kinda like this one. Drawing is at least 25 years old, paper is falling apart.

Hey Denz. I have/had my amateur radio licence. I am told my call-sign VK4VGJ and no doubt the license lapsed years ago, Recently I started to ask about locally as to what's required to get back into the hobby. Question: Did you or do you need proficiency in Morse Code these days? I am guessing not in these days of advancing technology.

Quick snippet. I remember back in the day, visiting a shack and seeing a TRS80 deciphering Morse, characters 'magically the appearing on a B&W monitor :eek: So long ago.

Keep voting for the coal and gas parties and in a couple decades we'll be back to those long ago days.

And you can call the ISS if you're lucky, I saw a ham nerd do it once on the tube. He could only talk to them for a few minutes since the ISS is flying at 17,000km/h or whatever. It was pretty cool actually :olo:

Omegle? Reminds me of my old CB radio days in the early 1970's, yes before some of you were born :p

The bike is all cleaned up, prepped and ready to go for our trip to Virginia. A few friends and I are riding 950 miles from south Florida to a Shenandoah Valley resort where we will stay several days. Should be great weather and a great place to ride.

Wait you guys are allowed to cross state borders without having to quarantine? No wonder Covid is so out of control over there.

A rally like this is stupid, but the article mentions the numbers are based on anonymized cellphone data.
It's very unlikely the numbers actually reflect reality. There's no way 250,000 people get infected at an outdoor motorcycling event of 500,000 people..

I agree it’s impossible to know the numbers. But don’t they mean it’s “linked” to 250k people? Meaning they can (theoretically) be traced backed to the biker circlejerk. Not necessarily that half the people there contracted the virus...

it's almost as if the virus doesn't care why people are congregating and is just infecting them anyway

Yeah, don't mind all the looting and rioting. Covid doesn't go anywhere near there. :olo:

We're heading out tomorrow morning for Virginia... For all you Covid warriors, I've already checked the travel restrictions. As long as I have my covid-proof mask I'll be fine.

It should be a great ride around the mountains. I'll post some pics and video when I return.

See ya soon. :cool:

Me too :) as I'm off to a boutique sub tropical hideaway escape in the Gold Coast hinterland for a few nights, set back in the hills maybe an hour from the sands of the coast. Looking forward to the green and damp of the bush, cold nights and a log fire.
