    screws coming out of my foot

    So I thought I would share the joy of getting 4 scerws out of my foot from my crash at Willow Springs here in CA. My motor seized in turn 9. I high sided and broke my foot in 8 places. One bone was crushed to dust and they had to put in a bone graft. Then the 4 screws kept it all together. I was in a cast for 9 weeks. I have been out of the cast for about 2 weeks now. I still can't walk on it for a few more weeks. My foot wont bend much and I can't move my big toe yet. That's the whole story to date. It totally sucked getting the screws out and hurt like *&^#. 1 of 4 2 of 4

    screws coming out of my foot

    Yes. It hurt. They did not give me anything for the pain. You just have to take it and be done with it. I can say I don't want to go through this again. My foot looks a lot better once I was able to soak it for an hour and get all that dead skin off. I can't really move my big toe yet, but I keep trying. I can move my ankle a little more now. I still have a long way to go, but I'm working on it each day. I can try to walk in 2 more weeks. I look forward to it, but I know it's going to be painful. Thanks for all the well wishes. They help to keep me positive. Here is my foot two weeks after that video was taken. The lines are from a Compression bandage I had just taken off. Thank goodness for nail polish that can cover that black nail of mine. LOL My foot does gets darker when it's down and the blood rushes to it.

    My 03 Wr450 dirt to street project

    FYI for painting plastic. I had a race bike that came unpainted with white bodywork, but I wanted black. I used Krylon Fusion to paint it. It's just a spray can but it came out really good. I used to get complements on it all the time. Everyone wanted to know who painted it. I told them it was a rattle can job and they were always surprised. It never bubbled or chipped off. It even held up well under crashes. :-) Here is the best pictures I could find to show the paint job.

    Cool pictures. What track is that? Up in Nor Cal? You look really good in the pictures. I have never had anyone show me how to ride supermoto style. I hopped of a sportbike and on to a supermoto. I would love to learn how to slide that back end in a turn. Looks like I also need to keep my foot out more. I love looking at everyones pictures. Very cool.

    Here is the best supermoto I have ever been on. Darrick Lucchesi let me take his out for a spin. Too wonderful for words. This bike is amazing!! Love This Bike! I want the 2009 Aprilia SXV Fast and super smooth.

    I have a Honda 600rr and an Aprilia rs125. I can't stop thinking of riding a supermoto. I really miss having one. I love long rides on the 600. I love the 125 2-stroke on the track, and I miss my supermoto on the track and a little bit shorter rides. 150 miles + on that kind of seat gets to me after a while. Sigh, I am a moto junkie. I wish teaching paid more. I need a supermoto.

    Aprilia Dorsoduro 750!!

    I loved this bike. I got to take it out on the track. I really want one. I liked it better than the Hypermotard by far. I road that one also on the track, same track.

    New bike

    I understood what he was saying when I read it slow. LOL. The bike is a 450. The bike is very strong. :-) I really like Alpinestars gear. It seams to always be a great fit. All my gear is A*. Boots, gloves, and suit. Whats funny is I race a Honda NSR50, little sport bike. After a few crashes and a bunch of races I had to get a new suit. Then I got a suit for the street since the track suit tends to get trashed fast. After all that you will find I have 3 suits (one is pretty trashed) 3 pairs of boots (again on trashed pair), 3 pairs of boots (yep, a trashed pair) and gloves all Alpinestars. I have gone through about 4 sets of gloves so far. I really don't crash that much. LOL I am taking the bike out on Sat. Should be a great ride!

    New bike

    I am happy to say that my husband and I now have a supermoto. I have been wanting one forever. Here I am my first weekend ride with it Easter day. http://www.turn2sportbikes.com/032308_Picture09.jpg I love the bike and can't wait to go out again on it.

    CRF 100 mini motard project.. questions

    I am in the same boat you are. I am going to change my xr100 to a supermoto. My bike is stock, but came with the 80 forks and triple. I also noticed that the forks are longer. I think the triple clamps will help with that. I am wondering about tires at this point.

    CR 85 Front Forks on xr100

    I am about to start that process any week now. I was wondering what kind of tires people are racing on. Anyone have advice on tires?

    My husband and I just got a Husky. I fell in love with supermoto's 2 years ago at Femmoto. Here is a pic of myself and the bike on my first ride. http://www.turn2sportbikes.com/032308_Picture09.jpg

    Can you Highside a motard on corner exits?

    Oh that is such a sad picture. Both rider and bike look whipped.

    Where can I find....

    I'm looking for information on supermoto technique. I know there is a class, but you need your own bike for that from my understanding. I am without a bike but still want to learn. I am looking for something to read up on. Like how to get the back tire to break loose around a corner. Some people are foot out, some knee down. When in a turn, do you lean over with the bike or counter balance? All that good stuff. My goals for riding are to lear everything I can and be the best rider I can be. No shame in asking, thats how you get better an go faster. Thanks, Lisa

    New to Supermoto

    A little back ground. I ride street bikes. I race 50cc two-strokes. With that said, I was at www.femmoto.com this weekend and was able to ride the Aprilia SXV. It was AWSOME! Darrick Lucchesi lead the few lap demo. When I got off the bike I had the biggest smile on my face. It was a blast! Im totally hooked. (great one more bike hobbie to get into,lol) I loved that style of riding. What do you think would be a good starter supermoto. I think it would be cool to be able to ride on the streets. Any thoughts? Thanks so much, Lisa

    Here is the link to my report of femmoto where I tried my hand at supermoto. There are some pictures of me out on the Aprilia. Just looking at the pictures gets me excited about doing that again. http://www.turn2sportbikes.com/Events_100706_FemMoto.html Lisa
