Andrew Trevitt Update

Many of you probably remember the posts regarding SportBike writer and editor Andrew Trevitt's accident (or tip-over as he calls it) back in November. He was testing tires on the highway and a car made an illegal u turn in front of him. He suffered facial fractures, damage to his T3 and T4 vertebrae, and a broken pelvis. His spinal cord injuries have left him in a wheel chair, at least for now.

Andrew or "The Geek" as he is known, is an exceptional rider having been a Canadian National 250GP champion. His articles in SportRider and are among the most informative you can find on the web. He really covers the gamut of topics including suspension, tuning, rider basics, dyno, etc, etc. Here is a link to many of them:

He is finally back on a computer and writing a blog about his rehab and healing process. You might want to take a bit of time and read through it.

Andrew is considered a suspension guru and wrote a book, Suspension Setup that is very highly rated. He is now offering signed copies of his book at this link:

I'll be ordering one tonight. Think about supporting one of the brilliant minds in the sport bike community and buy one for your library as well.

We could ALL use more understanding about suspension setup.
