BRINGING THE AWESOME

Let’s face it. Riding bikes is awesome, in and of itself.

But sometimes, some marvelous human being does something on a motorcycle or with a motorcycle that is truly awesome and you can’t help but smile to yourself and wish that you could have done that.

This is a man who broke his collarbone in practice, chartered a plane to Spain because the local hospital could not operate on him in time, then after undergoing surgery to have it extensively plated and pinned, checked himself out of the hospital, chartered another plane back and raced the next day.

Yes, this has nothing to do with motorcycles, but come on, when you hunt wolves with an eagle in the Altai Mountains of Mongolia, motorcycles are just not needed.

You should take your motorcycle and try this sometime. Seriously. Give it a crack. See how you go. Bravo, young lady.
