    Shit man, you did something 99.99% of people in the world wont do, turn a lap at Isle of Man. Be proud of that, it was fun enjoying the ride with you.

    Sav. You are the man. I don't know anyone else who would even try to attempt something like this.
    You're an inspiration to us to reach for dreams.
    Heal up and keep achieving

    Re: How can you race TT Isle of Mann?

    Really sorry to read this. I don't know you beyond keyboard interaction but very proud of you for the effort you've put forth. Please don't let this one incident deter you, shit happens to those who try and push themselves. Very few emergency room conversations start with, "So there I was on the couch..." I think most here have watched this play out to this point reading in total awe of your persistence and drive, and can't say there isn't a tinge of jealousy.
    I am sorry that you got hurt, that sucks, but head up, keep moving forward. Let us know if you need anything or a hand with things until you heal up (except for wiping your ass, you're on your own there).

    Saw the news item but didn't want to post until we heard from you. Given the nature of your injuries I'll wait a day or so before I bust your balls and make you laugh. Know that we're all thinking fondly of you, and glad to hear it's not worse after the mention of "airlifted".

    Did I hear that Kate is there to take care of you?

    Gotta love when a good friend tries making you laugh, when you have 5 broken ribs and a fubar'd lung...

    With your newfound spare time, can you track down BDK Racing and prep a pack of FZR goodies for me?

    That right there is funny.

    Heal up soon Sav.

    Like others have said, you were doing something the rest of us only dream about. Hold your head high and be proud of what you have accomplished. Get healed up, evaluate things and decide where you want to go from here.

    Hope I didn't spoil things w/ the update, I figured some may have heard and thought worse than reality. Chin up Sav, you learned a bit, and no doubt will be back stronger than ever next time.

    Sav, you've lived life to a fulness most can only dream of. You lucky sonuvabitch, you've not only ridden at the IoM, you've freakin crashed there.

    Are you going to auction off the leathers or frame them?

    Absolutely magnificent. Loved the place immediately. Bumpy doesn't even begin to cover it. Endless too. So much fun though.

    Snapped frame. Snapped top triple. Took Swingarm out. Yeah it's pretty bad.
