Evolution of the site, myself, and the Versys
Well i must say its been ages since ive been on here, its kinda cool seeing all these names on here that i remember, dont know if you remember me or not, i painted the flameing V, ect. When i first joined on here all of our bikes were even the same color! Anyway, kinda a sad day for me. I wrecked a quad really bad 6 weeks ago and broke my collar, shoulder, and hip, and had some serious internal damage. Just had my last surgery two days ago. Two days before i did that, i bought my first house, and im 22. I learned a huge lesson in financial responsibility and how it goes hand and hand with injuries. Im still on dissability, and will be for another 6 weeks, selling things one at a time. I started thinking when i was in the hospital, that every sport ive ever gotten into, has led me to the ER, in the last 6 years ive had 4 reconstructive surgerys on in 3 injuries, all caused by myself. Its a pattern, i get competitive, i get fearless, and i cant change that. Its excellent if your talking about your career, or your drive, but not your body. The Versys is the only toy ive never beat on, nor has it ever hurt me, but im thinking its only a matter of time. My mind has quickly went from motorcycles and mud tires to carpet and countertops. SOOOO, It breaks my heart but the only thing i can think of doing about it, so i can keep my house and keep moving my life into more of a nest, and even stay alive, is to let go of it. This isnt a sales pitch, im just going to keep trying to get by until spring when i hopefully will take less of a hit for what ive put into it. If you guys look at some of my older threads and pictures, and maybe you could give me an idea of what you think its worth when the some comes out, id appreciate it. It sits in my garage in the same exact condition that it rolled in there on the last picture on the "new paint for the V" thread, with 6K miles. Maybe somebody on here may want it, who knows.
