    Thanks man. Thanks for cluing me in. I've finally decided I'm going to race recently and your report is helpful.

    Hansi, I appreciate your taking an interest in my problem. Yes. I can do those things. I tried them out on a recent ride to be certain. Thanks, Nic

    Keith, Thanks, unnecessarily i dropped my precious Black Night. I have a pattern of dropping at low or no speed. I know the causes but wondering how i can break this habit before attending school in may 2014. some caused are rocks, a little to much brake, poor road shoulder, sand. i know all these conditions can be corrected but what is it in me that makes me fall off by my own hand? this has happended about 4 times with my Busa...three times in the driveway and once on a low speed practice course in a community college and lastly most recently in front of my house when coming in to park...poorly dressed (jeans but sufficent jacket and helmet) and returning in a hurry to see my wife off to work...no damage to bike or self except tiny scrapes an one bruised lower lip. will be right back up on her today. if i had to guess it would be rushing hurrying or "I've seen guys in a hurry and they don't make it". so to make it i have to take my time and "get each concept firmly in my mind". overconfidence is another character issue. all responses welcome.

    Numbness/tingling In Leg And Foot

Dr. prices assessment is exactly what I guessed in the ballpark. we do a stretch routine at walmart which is similar to the marine system with the addition of the lifting stretch which is like a modified squat without weights and a more upright back position. should be good for your legs. best, nr

To date I have looked at it and dismissed it out of hand. It deserves my full consideration. Thank you for showing me exactly where you stand on this issue. Nic
