Let Me chime in

Well,

I might Have a few Stories to Share. popo and I grew up together, have done just about everything together, All i can say is Ariel is a safe by the book guy, who realy thinks things through and through.

Lets say when Ariel was a Kempner High school Baseball player and dislocated his hip, (Far worse than a small little whole in the knee) he kept on playing, lets go back even futher, A hernia he got during his martial Arts training in Kempo( that involved surgery) He kept going, or the first time he was hit on his bike by a careless driver, he faired ok but kept going. Ariel has always kept on going, and to think that after a spectacular crash like the one on 1/12 is going to stop him from living his life is to not know Ariel for who he realy Is. A person who adores life and family before anything else and that involves a passion for the need to attempt things that have risk. we all do it and to think one is foolish for not settling down after an accident is to give up and quit in my honest opinion.

If Ariel were to share the fact that when he was a little boy in havana he had an illness that nearly ended his life yet he survived, escaped a communist Nation and stated a completely new Life in this country , i would say His life has never Been risk free.

So Dont Worry bro
You have A Very special guardian Angel, Just never stop Believing in Yourself
You Know I wont.


Number 1 Risk Taker
Your Cuz and Best Friend
Ed

(my grammer sucks cuz im realy Inteligent )lol

Note: I WILL keep riding till I die, even if I die on a bike...

Keep riding but make sure you ride like you don't want to die before you really should or have to.

That is, don't take foolish/stupid risks on a motorcycle.

Granted, riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous enough as it is but some just seem to taunt Death into coming after them.

I have crashed 3 times now, My first wreck was on the street and I got airlifted to the hospital, My second wreck was at TWS (Texas World Speedway) I lowsided in turn 11 and then my third wreck was on the street. I have 2 kids and a beautiful wife And I always say I will be careful but sometimes things just happen. Now after my third wreck I am only riding on the track from now on. Of course I always wear full leathers and back support and a good helmet so I do take precautions. But my wife knows this is something I love to do and she wishs me the best.

You know You're Crazy!!! But that's not a reason to quit riding! You know risks are everywhere. You could give up riding and get taken out while walking down the street! You gotta do what you love and enjoy! I know I can't wait to get back on the bike!

we all tempt fate every morning when we get out of bed. Your fate is not determined by the line of work you're in or by what you choose to drive, it is a much higher power which determines our fate. I say live well and have fun while you're in this world; when it is your time, it wont matter what you are doing.

You !!

First of all call me back when I call, you !!! I'm glad your OK!!!!!
Second, do what you like the same as others have mentioned in the posts, you need to make yourself happy, but you have to gauge your risk!!!!

You still have a certain obligation to friends(you neglect!!!) and Family (you Neglect!!!) So... I heard you have pictures of the bike, give me a look see!!!

Dude, I get told that all the time by my family and friends especially after a crash. Most people you talk to do not get what we do. We have a passion for bikes, speed and danger. They have never experienced the speed/turning rush like we have.

Next time they hassle you tell them is dangerous too are they willing to give that up?

Oh yea, how is the bike? Any preliminary reports?

I had my first street accident ever about a week ago. I've been riding motorcycles since I was six years old, and I've been riding street since the age of 16. I'm 35 now - while I'm not at all happy with the circumstances of the accident, I think the averages were pretty darn good. If this hobby, endeavor, lifestyle - whatever you like to call it - makes you happy then by all means it's worth it. Mitigate the risk as much as possible by wearing the proper gear and keeping your bike in the best possible shape, and turn it down a notch on the track.

most people dont ride just because they wanna tempt fate or be reckless, heck most people dont even worry about it being dangerous,nor do they worry about getting hurt. we ride because we love it plain and simple, unless your a squid and just wanna be cool. then your just a loser trying to fit in.

so basically stop worrying about everybody else and do the thing that you love to do, if they dont like it they'll get over it

i had to go and stay with parents cause there was no way i could live by myself in that condition

they kept telling me to stop it, i told my mom, you want me to be a liar or an honest man?

she prefered honest so. i told the truth and yes kept riding

and to top it off, my mom keeps my ttr and when i go visit thats what i use

but she makes me laugh when she tells me. u fall once, I TAKE THE HELMET BECAUSE I HEARD THEY ONLY GOOD FOR ONE CRASH

Turn it around on those who would encourage you to stop. There is a line that each person defines for how they will live and what risks they are willing to take.
Some will bungee jump and skydive while others are afraid to leave their house. Ask them where should I draw the line between enjoying my life and huddling in a corner under a blanket?
Should I give up the things I love for some imaginary safety? As soon as you do you will get hit by lightning.

I have a sticker on my bike that says "I refuse to tiptoe through life, only to arrive safely at death".

All of you are crazy. Y'all are just waiting for serious sheit to happen before you call it quit. By then it's too late. In gambling, winners walk away with money in hands whether it's $1 or $100K. Riding is like gambling, RISKS. Ever heard of quit while you're ahead? Track is just as dangerous as street because we push it to the edge of our limits. Death is the last thing to worry about, not capable of moving about on your own power is your priority of fears. Sorry, just putting this out there for others to think about. I hear this alot from my family and non-riders.

I am a single parent of one. I know my risks but sometimes I just can't help myself.:/:

Ariel here is my take on this issue. First a little about me. I have always been one of the most conservative least pointless risk taking guys you could ever meet. I am a father of 5 kids and 3 grand kids whom I love and cherish very much and have very very close relationships with and most of all a wife that I think is the best and most beautiful.

Now all that said I ride a sport bike and I'm going to be riding the track next month. They worry about that and here's my roll in that matter. I could just roll up on the couch and stay safe all weekend but I've never been that kind of person and that's who they love. I play hard but smart. I don't take chances that I'd like to take but don't need to take. I realize that my future is not going to be racing motorcycles or stunting or any of those things, there are other things that I'm better at. I realize that I don't have to push as hard as I can on the rode or on the track. I know my time won't be a good as it could be if I really pushed hard or as good as it will be in the future with more experience. So I'll push a little always leaving room for error. It's just not worth it pushing harder.

Here's a little different view as a father. My oldest son who is in the Army with the 82nd Airborne just about drove his mother and I nuts when he told us he was signing up to go kill bad guys. We didn't want him to take this risk and wanted to protect him but he did it anyway. Now I just 100% support him no matter what. He also owns a sport bike now and he was a TX state wrestler all, risky business. I don't want to see him sit on the couch and read books all day and be board and depressed.

So make smart choices, hug your parents and family and tell them you understand their concern and appreciate it, and go have fun.

Just me,
