Thank you Larry from MSRHouston

As I have said before, to many good deeds go unsaid...I for one think that good deeds should be celebrated and talked about more oftern... Larry from MSRHouston has been storing my bike since the date of my accident, Free of charge... He advised me not to worry about picking up my bike and instead worry about my KNEE and MY DAD instead First and Foremost...Not only had he stored it but he also has taken the time to look the bike over and give me a totally free estimate on what it would take to fix it... Many would think that the reason is bc he might get some money from me if I decide to fix it with him, BUT I DO NOT THINK THAT IS WHY... in my line of work I listen to bullshit all day and can usually tell when some in hones and sincere with me... He offered to keep looking on E-Bay for used parts and offered to help me with the labor as much as he could... Today Larry called me and sat on the phone with me for almost 1 hour and listened to me vent about the accident (which was my fault) and listened to me just simply rant on about my new thoughts of riding( Yes, I am still going to keep riding, now more than ever)... He offered advise and NEVER hurried me off the phone... he made my accident and thought about it feel like it was importand(even tho I am sure he has seen hundreds)... When it was all said and done... Larry made me feel like I had hope one way or the next, even tho my bike is all fukced up... Thanks for helping me out and listening to me if nothing else... Hope you can help my bike out soon too...

P.S ... I also again wanted to thank Doug,Allen and several others for helping me out too... your actions also have NOT gone un-noticed!!!

+1 on the favors thing, he let me "use" a spare rearset and master cylinder of his and has not yet asked for anything in return. Great guy, and as many have said, very talented. He makes it looks far too easy out there...
