Thank you for the kind words, Rob. I'm sorry you got banged up but glad you're still rolling. When we pass going opposite directions, you will get my wave!
It's hard to talk about this stuff. I'm not a timid rider, which brings its own kind of risk, and I'm not a coward. But I looked sudden death right in the eye and it was ugly, and it wasn't messing around.
I'm 65 now, and the dirt will have me soon enough. I ain't giving myself up for nothing. Plus, there's great satisfaction in just being the best you can be at riding and not being a dumbass. It's a better payoff than the pursuit of danger and getting away with it imho.
