I got a lot of heat from my family.......but I'm still riding, no more track days but I've got a lot of people counting on me too. So I figure I've got to give a little to get a little.

just full gear-it, stay under 120 mph, dont drink and ride, and never cruise in the far right lane. i think track days are just as dangerous as street rides, honestly, more of my friends have messed themselves up on the track than on the street.

Well I was life flighted my first time at MSRH (still kinda embarrassed by it) but as long as you learn something from it and know/understand the risks.... its your life live it. Its how I feel. That may chance if I get a family but right now I am of the mentality where I don't want to say 10 years from now "gee I really wish I would of kept riding". Its all about weighing the pros and cons and making an informed properly weighed decision.

amen to driving in houston. my fav drivers are the ones that do the last second lane switching on the highway to make the on/off ramps, nearly hitting the barrels as they do so. crazy texas drivers.

My advice to you ladies out there: when they tap your knee and tell you to hold on, hit them and say "the you do!!"

people ask me if i'm an adrenaline junkie. I think they are crazy and that i'm nowhere near that. I love the track. Really the only thing keeping me from going fast more often is money. I wish I had a more exciting job and I may soon. I dislocated my shoulder and may have fractured my humerus. It may have some serious effects on my future. Will it stop me from riding, not a chance in .

If riding makes you happy then so be it. You are who you are. You like what you like. I think track riding presents a true challenge physically, mentally, and emotionally. There are a lot of things to overcome to ride well on the track. That's the way I see it anyway.

Heal up well PoPo, you have a lot of track time ahead of you.

Showing off does me no good. I pulled the poon pad and passenger pegs off looooong ago. If a girl wants to ride she can get her own.

I find riders to be one of a kind. I ride for the escape and relaxation. Whether I'm cornering fast while my adrenaline is pumping, or just looking at the sunset chillin down an open road. Either way risk will always be there. I feel you though in trying to balance your wants verses what your family's perceptions are. The fact that you can reflect back on your experiences and are able to ponder about this shows that , you are definitely not crazy. Just take it easy whatever you decide to do. I feel like I've been living an extra life from a long while back, and every time I can get that feeling whether through cruising or speeding, makes it all worthwhile.

exactly . i feel that being a rider has made me appreciate life more, also. i have experienced more in my 20 years than many have in their whole life, and i do my best not to take any day for granted.

This is all relative. To some people, anything outside the absolute plain-jane norm seems “wild and crazy” because their lives are so mundane. Those opinions probably should be filtered out. Sounds to me like you’re just a bit of an adrenalin junky. That doesn’t mean you have to die. But if you push it often enough, hospital visits are often a fact of life. If you can deal with that, keep going. If not, stop.
