    Now added to the list of good men I've known through racing that took their bike home in a bucket. It happens, makes for the best stories around the campfire.

    Glad you're relatively ok.

    IIRC he ended up ordering it and the required associated bits new OEM as he couldn't source one used.

    Are you planning on giving it another go next year or is that it?

    Yes plan is to return next year and race.
    I tried to ride today, they called the hospital and they did a physical test and denied me.

    I think them denying you may be a blessing in disguise. If they said ok and you rolled around putt-putting 'cause you aren't 100%, wouldn't that poor showing be a reason for them to deny you next year?

    Probably for the best...for the reason Josh stated.

    Will you need to go back in 2017 for the Manx, then 2018 for the TT?

    That just means you get to ride it again for an extra year right?

    So glad you weren't more seriously injured!! It was sooo exciting just reading about your prep and planning for the trip. Safe travels back to the US my friend!

    Re: How can you race TT Isle of Mann?

    wow!!!

    I only read the first page back in 2014 and now this update in 2016...can't believe you did it!! huge props for making it all the way there and making a lap, putting the time/effort/money into it, and making a reality for your life most people wouldn't dare!

    the injuries still sound like a good amount - heal up quick, but still glad they weren't worse and that you'll ride again. Sorry to hear about the bike, but better the bike than your leg.

    best thing is your attitude - after all that you've gone through, you're still chin up - motivation for us all!!

    I *think* your race was on tv this weekend - the 650 race riders looked like the guys in your pics.
