Race Recap for #WilseyvilleHareScrambles/ #Race4Paradise  Holy Dust Boogers Batman!!!
Wowzers... not a good race to get a bad start in.  Raced B-Vet, with the Pros and A classes, so I was stuck way back on row 8. Bike started slow, per usual, and I was 2nd to last off the line.

Lap 1 wasn't even really a race, it was just trying not to die by riding off the course... it was like riding in chocolate cake batter, visibility was about 2-10 feet throughout much of the course, with lots of blind, silt filled ruts. The dust from all the riders ahead just hung in the air, like a Fat Albert fart that fills the room, lingers for hours, and sticks to you, only you can't see through it... it was sketchy! 
Lap one came to and abrupt stop for about 3 minutes, at a bottleneck at a challenging short climb. Managed to work up to 6th in B-Vet by home check. Had a solid 2nd lap, passing a number of riders, but still came in to home check in 6th. I think the B-Vet guys who got good starts got through that nasty short climb before there was a bottleneck and put a good gap on me.

Towards the end of lap 3, I was feeling good, after passing a few more people, and was right on the ass of a rider in B-vet. I really wanted that 5th place spot and was trying to make a pass in the blinding dust, but got cross rutted (didn't see that rut at all!), and crashed pretty hard.  Tweaked my left leg, and twisted the bars up.  Stopped a few times to straighten the bars out on trees, was still in 6th at home check.

Lap 4 was horrendous.  My knee hurt, and my leg felt like one big angry charlie horse cramp.  Ended up going super slow, had a few slow speed crashes, and got stuck in another bottleneck.  Thank God for the @norcalmc crew at that short climb pulling everyone up!
Finished in 6th.... weird race,  but fantastic event that raised $60,000 for the victims of the #CampFire and devastated town of #Paradise.

Happy #WheelieWednesday y'all!!! She may be 20 years old, and she was born overweight, but my Dark Mistress still knows how to dance!

A couple of great shots of me feeling on point, having fun, and getting my flow on at the #2018VCGP... felt absolutely great up until I was taken out from behind and my bike was mangled. 
Thank you for the great pics @amyfyephotography!  You really nailed it this year! So many great  shots of people twisting it hard through this section!

There's been a lot of speedbumps on the way to @virginiacitygrandprix this year, from my stupid finger healing frustratingly slow and my tweaked back not letting me ride even once since March, to work being miserable, finding a crack in #KatieEm's wheel, having it welded as a temp fix, and having to shell mucho dinero and energy to to have the wheel bearing replaced in my truck today, all quite minor in the grand scheme, and barely a flea bite on an elephants ass compared to what so many less fortunate than I must deal with every day,  but still frustrating as hell none the less.

BUT..... there has been so much more positivity to outweigh the negative all along the way.  From having a wonderful partner who I can always count on being there when things are rough, and having so many wonderful friends who are there to support me as well... to feeling good about myself, and appreciating my own resilience and determination,  which yes, can make me quite stubborn at times.

Its life's little challenges that always bring out the strongest feelings of satisfaction when you not only ride them out, but commit to facing them head on.  Can't wait to get out there and race again, not to try and be super competitive and push myself past the limits of what my body is capable of right now necessarily, but to push myself, and my body, to really FIND the limits of where I'm at in the moment, so I know what kind of goals I should have moving forward.  Personal growth is fun, and oh so rewarding. 
So grateful for all who love me, for all whom I get to love, for all the opportunities I've been presented in life, and for motorcycles of every kind.  The church of two wheels is my zen, my prayer, and my meditation, and its also a crazy motivational fire under my ass!

Now... off to take a four hour nap, and get this show on the road! 
I've got #KatieEm all dialed in, and cant wait to see how she rides with the new goodies I've installed!
See y'all in #VirginiaCity, or someplace maybe not quite as awesome, soon!!! 😉

#TBT To the 2017 @virginiacitygrandprix!  Went into that one feeling pretty decent physically, and hoping to finish in one piece.  Ended up placing 1st in Amateur 30+ and 60th overall, dispite the flat on the last lap... was so pumped being able to share that awesome experience with my wife and good friends! .

Definitely won't be competitive this year having to race the expert class, but can't wait to get back out there next weekend, even though my hand is busted, back is hurt, and my bike has a limp.  Just gonna be smooth, try to finish, and have one hell of an epic party night after the race with all my old and new friends alike! #VCGP is just an epic event that cant be missed!
See y'all out there!

What a difference a new front tire, #NitroMousse, and freshly serviced forks make!  Front end felt GREAT today!  Thank you @StokeMoto and @ratsomx at #SantaCruzSuspensionAndAccessories for coming through for me this week!

Didn't realize how bad my forks were till getting them serviced, what a difference!
And I'm super impressed with the #BridgestoneX30 combined with a Nitro Mousse stuffed inside. Expected more of a dead feel, but it feels much like a tube with 12-14 PSI. Pretty rad! 
Rode 50 miles & for over 2 hours straight, or about 1/2 a #VCGP.  Hand felt ok for an hour, then it got hard to hold on and tough to use the clutch. But, better than last week! Thank god I have a #Rekluse!  Wouldn't be able to try racing the 2018 VCGP without it!

Renz was AWESOME!  God I love all that single track. Did pretty much all the Renz trails, even set my PR on a few (vs whats recorded on my Strava). Focusing on getting my technique back, riding smooth. My pace is picking up slowly every ride. 
#KatieEm is unbalanced/loose out back,  because of a worn out #MountainHybridExtreme.  Great tire, but gotta figure out what to run out back for VCGP.  Need something more aggressive this time, but durable with heavy sidewalls that works well with #Tubliss.
I'd buy a rear Nitro Mousse, but my credit card can't take the hit, so sticking with Tubliss for now.

Messed around taking some vids/pics of me just goofing off at the end.  I never seem to get pics of me riding, so that was fun. What a great day! Hand hurts, back hurts, bunch of blisters,  but TOTALLY worth it to be out in the dirt!

Great day at Hollister yesterday!  Epic conditions, at least for all the upper stuff.  Put in 60 miles on KatieEm, and the custom left grip helped to delay my inability to hold on to the bars. Left hand/finger still killed after 1/2 an hour though.  The front MX32 is getting more sketchy as it continues to shed it's side knobs, so I was taking it easy in the turns again.  Have a Bridgestone X30 and a Nitro Mousse on order from @Stokemoto and I'll be dropping off my forks at Santa #CruzSuspensionAndAccessories for a service today,  so the front end should be ready for Virgina  City right quick! (More ready than me 😉) All in all, felt great to be back out in the dirt for the second time!

Did another 6-7 miles on the Yamahas.  Just rode the vintage MX track,  and couldn't really open them up much, but the 450F, 450FX and 250F all felt like great machines, though they all need bar risers and tall seats if my lanky ass were to get comfortable on them.  I really want a fuel injected bike after riding them! 
#KatieEm turned 10 this year.... maybe double digits is too old for a race bike? 😉

My 3 mistresses sound so good  together. 
Also, hitting Hollister Hills tomorrow morning around 11 or 12.  The Yamaha demo days are going on too, so that should be cool!

Finished!!!
Was going to go ride for a bit today, but ended up modifying my left handfrip so that my messed up hand can actually hold onto it instead.
Hopefully this will give me much better control of the bars, and keep my hand feeling better for a lot longer next time I hit the trails on #KatieEm.

Took it super easy, rode slow, no crashes. 
Hard as hell to hold on to the bars with my left hand, and my finger/left hand  wasn't  very happy with me after about 10 miles....
BUT.... it still felt great to be out in the dirt again!
.

Definitely need to ride every weekend, and stay dedicated to physical therapy, leading up to the #VCGP if I'm gonna be able to finish it!
.
Was fun finally riding with you @Matt132S!  Definitely looking forward to getting back up to speed and trying to keep a little closer to your rear fender out there!

Felt f-ing great to do both a short fun ride last night,  and a nice SC Mountain ride with @cartwheelin69 and @thmp_thmp today!  Wrapping the busted finger around the grip once again is the best therapy imaginable! .
Between starting to ride again, getting back into teaching riding classes, making some awesome new friends and tapping into my hooligan side a bit, getting some yard work done and having some great laughs with @wudgiedub, and hitting the comedy show at the @crowsnestsantacruz tonight.... I'd say this weekend was absolutely fucking radtastic!

Just sent out my registration for the #2018VirginiaCityGrandPrix!!! I can still barely bend my little finger, and my ring finger is pretty jacked too, BUT, this is damn good incentive to keep rehabbing the hell out of my hand so I can at least hold onto the bike for 4-5 hours of kickass racing in Nevada on April 28th!!! Hope to be back on the dirtbike early next month.  Not gonna be fast, and I'll have to race expert after winning my class last year, so winning anything isn't in my mind, but I think I'll be able to get a steady pace going, and finish somewhere in the middle.... at least that's my goal. 
Hit me up if anyone wants to ride during the weekends in March and April. I've got a lot of cobwebs to shake off!!! #VCGP #2018VCGP #VirginiaCityGrandPrix #LetsGoRacing #FavoriteRace #BrokenFinger #RehabTime #CantWait #D36 #114T #HookIt #GottaGetBackOnTheBike #GottaGetBackOnTheHorse #Offroad #Enduro #HareScramble #CrossCountry #Desert #Dirtbikes #HookIt #Klim #KlimMotorcycle

Цена: 380890 руб/шт 🕘Запрос в инстаграм: 24 часа 🚇Доставка по всей РФ и СНГ 🚀Оперативно привезем в Москве 🚩Раздел: #🔺🔻Комплект дисков 
Протестированные в суровом шведском климате, зимние шины Gislaved Nord Frost 200 предоставляют сцепление и управляемость на высшем уровне в любых условиях. Необычайное сцепление на льду обеспечивается благодаря высокотехнологичному шипу Eco Tri-Star. Он гарантирует улучшенное сцепление со льдом во всех направлениях, по сравнению со стандартным круглым шипом за счет особой конструкции твердосплавной вставки. Специальные «карманы» вокруг каждого шипа Eco Tri-Star способствуют отводу ледяной крошки от шипа и улучшенному сцеплению со льдом. Асимметричный рисунок протектора с трехмерными ступенчатыми ламелями на внутренней стороне и трехмерными синусоидальными ламелями на наружной стороне предоставляют улучшенную управляемость на всех покрытиях, а также оптимизированное сцепление на льду и снегу.

Getting #Braaaaaappy at work.  Training my finger to bend once again so I can hold onto the bars and operate the controls. 
It's still sooooooo stiff, swollen, painful, and not where it needs to be. Really surprised just how bad this little finger messed me up. 
Good excuse to bring one of my @protaper #PillowTopGrips to work and use it as a hand therapy device though!

Been busy and never posted my X-Rays.  Here they are, 1 week after surgery, and swipe to see before surgery but after I set the finger myself.  Dr. said it was good that I set it as straight as I did before it really swelled up and became more difficult to straighten.

Hopefully the surgery will save at least most of the range of motion in the joint.

Notice in the X-Rays how the wire frame puts the finger in traction and expands the collapsed joint, and  allows the three pieces to get back in alignment. (There is a spiral fracture, and then the joint broke in two.  The joint break that collapsed it is the really bad one that is the biggest reason for surgery)

The technical name of the surgery is "Percutaneous stabilization for a Closed displaced Left little finger middle phalanx fracture"

Should have the metal removed in about two weeks.  So sick of having this crap in my finger!

Still nervous about how much flexibility I'll get back, and how fast.
My goal is to be back on motorcycles by the beginning of February, get some good training in, and to RACE the Virginia City Grand Prix in Nevada the last weekend of April.

Heading into surgery at 2PM today to straighten out and install some hardware in this finger.  Turns out that when you break the joint of the finger in half, it's a lot more difficult and expensive, to keep it straight and healing properly.  Don't even get me started on the woes of insurance right now..... Ugh!!!

Doh!!!! Think I dun broke it 🙄

Had a great morning clearing trails for the #RidgeRunnersMC New Years Day Dualsport Ride! 
Then decided to do one quick loop on the cleared trails.....
Turns out that the street oriented front tire on the XR doesn't care so much for downhill left turns on hard pack covered in rocks and pebbles...
Urgent care now.... They'll probably set the broken pinky better than me 😉

Anyone else going to race the #WildWabbit #HareScramble @hollisterhills tomorrow?  Or just want to go check it out?
We've been insanely busy for 5 weeks in a row, haven't touched #KaTieM since Virginia City, but a buddy reminded me of this race the other day.... And screw it.... I'm gonna go ride! 
@wudgiedub isn't sure if she's going or not, so I have one or two spots I. The truck if someone wants to roll. Leaving my house at about 7:45 tomorrow morning.

Add me if you have Strava. (WhiteEagle114T)
Here is what it recorded from the the 2017 @virginiacitygrandprix race on Saturday. 
Recorded just a little extra time from right before and after my race.
#Strava #VCGP2017 #VirginiaCityGrandPrix #VirginiaCityGrandPrix2017 #114T #424 @virginiacity
So it turns out that after 100 miles, 4hrs 20 minutes, and 24,050 ft in elevation gains on a super gnarly race course.... I actually won my class (Amateur 30+), and finished 60th of over 500 racers in the 2017 @virginiacitygrandprix ... Even though I started in the 43rd row....and did the entire last lap with a flat front tire! 
Super stoked, and so grateful​ to have my beautiful wife by my side to support and encourage me to get out there and kick some ass!!! .

Sunday was my 3rd ride in 4 weeks.  Feels great to be railing KatieEm again!!! And WOW... what a HUGE difference a new front tire makes (Bridgestone M59 w/TUbliss)!!!
The old Dunlop MX32 was a good tire... But not when it was missing all of it's side knobs!

Changed the forks fluid and stiffened up the rebound and compression damping a bit too, and man, the front end really felt great! 
Still way out of shape, and my hands still start blistering after just an hour or so. Pretty nervous about racing the Virgina City Grand Prix this weekend. That 4 to 5 hour race is gonna kick my ass. Planning to ride at a fairly conservative yet consistent pace... ​ we'll see if the hands last!

This was #KatieEm on Saturday night. It was a good weekend for my orange mistress. -Drained forks and filled'em back up with some juicy #RockOil fork oil. -Had the new #BridgestoneM59 mounted up.
-Replaced the controller on my  @trailtechinc radiator fan.
-Crafted and installed a sheet metal brace for her broken front fender.... And of course.... Rode the piss out if her #HollisterHills yesterday afternoon... She was very happy for all the attention!

Okay.... So it's a little distracting having the bike loaded up outside my office! Heading to #HollisterHills after a short day for some riding! Will be there about 4:15 with another friend. Parking on radio ridge. Let me know if anyone else will be hitting the trails too.

Rebuilt the carb this week.  Customized the intake with that new High-Octane-Barley-POP fuel atomizer.
(I'll drink.... I mean build, one for you for the low price of only $19.99!!!). Should be good for at at least 65 more IBU's from that internal fermentation engine!!!

This guy really got on the gas to beat me to this corner... Only to blow the turn, and almost take both of us out! Luckily I was able to avoid him when he went down. I just had to plow through the grass off course.

Sometime I don't like keeping both feet on the pegs 😂. (Thanks for the pic @kendall.deeg !!)
After 5 months without riding a dirtbike, it felt great to race the @ama_d36 #PrimetimeHareScramble Scrambles at #MetcalfMotorcyclePark last Sunday! 
Felt good to be riding the bike with fresh plastics and custom graphics, including lots of love for Flynn Post, you were always such a competitor in everything you did brother, much more so than I, and it's an honor to take your off-road racing!
This was more of a fun/get back into it ride than a race for me. So I took it easy off the start (wasn't going to let myself get taken out in turn 1 like I did here in 2014). Then I got caught in some "blinded by the dust" mayhem and stalled.... Putting me in 12th of 12 racers in B-Vet to start the race. 
Found a good steady groove though, had a few fun battles, and finished laps 1, 2 and 3 in 5th place. 
Kinda smashed my hand on a manzanita 1/2 way through lap 4 though. And when I stopped to make sure it was okay, I noticed steam spewing out of my right radiator, and my engine temp was only reading 105, meaning almost all my coolant was gone. So I sat for a while to let the bike cool,  then rode 5 min, sat 5 min until making it to the finish line. 
Bummer about the mechanical failure, but it was still fun. Felt good to be out there, didn't have any crashes, and I got to break in the new graphics.
Hopefully the motor is okay from overheating. Replacing the radiator, installing the TUbliss system and a new Dunlop out back, doing an oil change and defeating the bike tonight in hopes of heading up to the Donner Hare Scramble This weekend!
Thanks to @stokemoto, #MooreAndSonsMotorcycles, #SantaCruzSuspension, @rockoilusa for being my go to's for moto related parts and service, and @SactownUnion Brewery for providing my favorite go to post race recuperation beerbrages!!!! And a special thanks to my beautiful Marisol @wudgiedub for not only being my cheerleader, but also helping with graphics installation and cleaning the air filter last week!

Spent part of the last week partially tearing down the KTM. As soon as the new valve shims come in, I'll drop the cams back in the motor, and then throw on a brand new set of plastics, and some custom graphics featuring @sactownunion Brewery, @stokemoto, #SantaCruzSuspension, #MooreAndSonsKTM, @RockOilUSA  #BEER, #SurfCityH3, @calistylescottsvalley, and most importantly, a healthy covering of #NeverForgetFlynn. Can't wait to put it all  together next week!!! #D36 #CrossCountry #OffRoad #TearItDown #ShesNaked #KTM #114T #RockOil

Post race face. That Picacho Creek was AWESOME!!! I had a great race.... except that someone blew a course marking, and a bunch of us went the wrong way and skipped a section of the course on the first lap by accident.  That eliminated me from a good finish in the results, but I had a blast out there!#PicachoCreekchallenge #D36 #HareScramble  #Racing #CrossCountry #114T #RaceFace

The little Chevy Blazer has been good to me over the past 12 years... But #GroundClearance is not her strong point. Got myself stuck right quick when we pulled into #PicachoCreek and started looking for a camp spot. .

Six Hours Of Hollister was a really fun challenge!  Travis K. and I decided to do a two man team in the Senior (35+) Sportsman class and we ended up pulling off 2nd place out of 9 teams. 
You could have called this race "Six Hours Of Roller Skating On Marbles" because the majority of the 6 mile course was super hard pack, with layers of fine dust or loose gravel. It was really slick, and very hard to push hard without laying it down. Add in that it was in the mid 90's, and it was an ass kicker of a race. But even after losing some time due to mistiming a couple of our rider/bike swaps, Travis cramping up real bad, and me developing some nasty blisters and almost having heat stroke, we were only 7 minutes behind 1st place after 18 laps and 6hrs 9min of racing.  I'd call that a success for our first ever team race! 
Thanks Travis, we'll get'em next year!  And thanks Keith for being an awesome pit crew!

The fuse for my radiator fan was blown, and I found out why during race prep last night... It couldn't turn because I bent the whole radiator and fan housing to shit last time I raced at Virginia City!  Had to bust out the ol' C-clamp from my Iron worker days and redneck engineer that baby back into functionality!  #RedneckEngineering #ThatelDoPig #RadiatorFix #RacingInjury #114T

In my first Virginia City Gran Prix, I planned on running brand new front and rear tires, and the #TublissSystem in each.  Mostly because if you get a flat with a Tubliss, you can still ride, plus you can run lower psi for better traction. Well.... after a failed attempt to test the Tubliss with a barely used front tire (leaked because a rim lock had been used on the tire before), I had the brand new tire installed with the Tubliss, and all was good!  I ran 10 psi in the front, and it felt great for an hour of single track riding at  Hollister Hills.  Then.... FLAT FRONT!  And it was the inner Tubliss bladder that failed, not the Tubliss liner to tire seal!  Upon further inspection, and discussing with Jeff at Tubliss, it sounds like a totally random / bad luck failure. BTW, the customer support experience with Tubliss has been top notch thus far, and I should be receiving free replacement parts next week.  In any case, I picked up and old, kinda beat rim from a local shop for $100 bucks, threw some fresh #MSR Bearings and seals, an #SRToffroad disc, and my used tire on it, and will be running this $200 setup up front and my used rear tire with a tube out back.  Didn't want to use my new tires because I can't install the Tubliss in them after using tubes and rim locks. Hopefully I don't get any pinch flats in this race!  #RacePrep #VCGP #114T #BadLuckIsOutOfTheWayIhope!!!

Who wants to go riding tomorrow? Been a busy couple of nights, but she'll be ready to go in the morning! New #DIDchain, new front and rear #ProTaper sprockets, new #RaceTech progressive rate shock spring, freshly cleaned air filter.... And a new #Dunlop front tire with the #TublissSystem installed. I tried to use my "used" tire with the Tubliss, since it only had 5hrs on it, but it wouldn't seal.... Tried resetting it over and over again without success, and finally ran out of time and just had @stokemoto throw on some fresh meat and put my used tire on an an old rim to use as a spare. #KTM #ProTaperUSA #RaceTechSuspension #114T #Offroad #SantaCruz #DoItYourself

Riding got rained out today.  So it's fresh brake pads and rotors for the Blazer instead. Had use some redneck engineering and tie a tarp between the lemon tree and fence to stay dry since our mini garage is too small for a car. Next Sunday task, new bearings and seals for the ass end of the #KTM.  #BrakeJob #DoItYourself #SaveSomeDough #Blazer #StayingDry #RedneckEngineering #114T
Fun day back on the #KTM for the first time in 6+ weeks. Nice conditions and a lot of fun out at #HollisterHills Pretty out of shape, and the ankle wast happy if I dabbed at all in left hand corners, but it was fun to get some miles in! #114T
