    But I can have both....can't I? I'm not converting it to a motocross track, I'm reworking several sections to introduce some speed where previously there was none.

    Oh for sure. I may have phrased my post incorrectly. Just saying if you're making a lot of trail decisions now, your eye may evolve a bit as you get more dialed in on the bike.

    Well, 4 weeks after smashing my shoulder apart, I'm doing fairly well. Have most motion back, just need to get those last couple degrees of going straight up above my head. Need to start working on strength a bit, too.

    It feels good enough that I thought about riding out behind the house just a little, or taking out the CBR. Spent all day Sat on the boat instead, and figured I'd give it another week and see then.

    It's amazing how as you gain the ability to do the most simple things again, how exciting it is. Like being able to wipe my ass with the normal hand again. Or being able to eat with that arm. I'm also into that phase where you forget it's still injured until you go to do something you shouldn't be. Wont take it for granted anymore, but can't stop pushing to do those dangerous things we love either.

    Looking ahead to the weekend of beautiful weather and thinking of taking off friday afternoon and trying to ride friday, saturday and sunday. Hopefully tossing a track into the mix on saturday.

    Anyone have dirt plans this weekend or want to meet up for a ride? I am in framingham.

    For the past year, I've had a lingering shoulder pain/minor range limitation from a crash that I was reluctant to put any real stress on, figuring I should listen to the pain. Was starting to get nervous it was a permanent feature. After a while I started lifting some medium weights and was surprised at the improvement. The movements were sketchy/strained at first, but it was almost like parts of my shoulder were re-learning how to walk. Things improved quickly from there.

    I've braced for impact on a incoming sneeze, only to feel ridiculous and realize nothing bad was going to happen because it doesn't hurt any more.

    I'm sure I'll be riding sometime somewhere this weekend. I haven't made any plans yet though. Wareham and MX23 will likely both be open, and 508intl announced they're doing MX practice every Saturday for rest of the year. They recently added a trials area too, although I haven't seen it in person yet.

    I was thinking of going to 508, I guess it has been pretty slow there, so plenty of open track to practice.

    Got headlights? It's still dark at that hour. Hahaaa.

    Have fun though. I just finished a big round of maintenance ahead of a week in WV. Woohooo!

    Hah! I'm the dummy riding an MX bike in the woods (so bigly) there's nothing but number plate up there.

    We'll be fine though. Hitting the lot at 6:30, by the time I unload, gear up, and chin wag a bit it'll be 7:00 for stands up.
