Hi!

I saw a picture.
I think the frame is cracked under the steering head bearing.

It is grease. Thanks for taking a look though!!


In less fortunate news I just left the hospital from emergency surgery on my throttle hand.... I've ridden the bike a couple times so I'm ready to write a review... But it's really hard to type one handed... May be a week or so before you get the next installment.

Hoping for a quick recovery! And, more importantly, hope it didn't involve scratching up that new bike!

That sucks. You know I’ll do you a favor! My friends from Guelph are coming down here tomorrow. They can bring your bike here and I’ll continue the write-ups...you know...all for the sake of helping you out.

Thanks guys!

It didn't involve scratching the new bike. (Although I did scratch it some already)

I was helping my little brother load his CRF230 into a truck and my thumb slipped into a hole in the sprocket as the tire spun. Sheared my thumbnail clean off, broke the thumb bone in three pieces after the last joint, and ripped the flesh open to the point that I could see the bone fragments. It hurt right away.... I got some pretty cool pictures of it though. The doctor was a great guy and we were joking through the surgery when I wasn't screaming at him from the pain.

I'll be ok. But it will be 6-8 weeks before the bone is totally healed. When I asked the doctor about my season opener race next weekend he found me a special thumb splint and said if I could handle the pain to have fun and not crash! I'm on the 16th start minute!!
