Thread: Ride with Norman Reedus

  1. #1

    Ride with Norman Reedus

    Just finished watching installment three of ride with Norman Reedus. First two episodes I was like... Meh. Norman hit it out of the park on Episode 3, Fontana dam. Sound familiar? He went to Apex cycles, which should also sound familiar as the BMW shop was highlighted in the ON. Norman Reedus is the actor who portrays Darrell on the walking dead.

    I'll be watching it more often as I won't be riding next couple of weeks. Fell off helicopter today preflighting for my students. Broke my right wrist, and and right elbow. First thought laying on the concrete... I just broke my right wrist, how am I going to ride home... HOW AM I GOING TO RIDE TO NATIONAL?

    I'm typing with my left index finger so for those who are like, "Man I wish Reece wouldn't post so much..." Your wish is granted.

    Jerry Elliot rode my bike home, Rhonda took me to the hospital, both MOA members. (Jerry was in the May ON page 34.) Members helping other members. This sincere dedication and caring for fellow members is so humbling. It is why I ran for the board this year, to serve people such as the these.

    I got a good ride in the rain yesterday with members Brian Hinton and Jeff Hanshew. I'm glad I did, as I'll be off the new bike for a while. Looks like Rhonda and I will be attending the national in the Bimmer and not on the Beemer.

    Dude...sorry to see that. Heal soon.

    Was that a teachable moment or a learning experience? . Sorry

    Had a pole climbing school where I taught the noobs the incorrect but fast way down from about 30' with an ankle sprain for my scorecard..and a very painful ride home on my RT. They volunteered to stay in fall arrest gear a few more sessions

    So so opinon of Normans show thus far...he was on a NineT episode 1 with an overly chatty young woman ridng a HD. Riding a Duc next into DeathValley...I don't think it's aimed at my age demographic.

    Yeah, Ellie and I look about the same, pretty pitiful. I count my blessings one by one. When I quit feeling sorry for myself I will do what it says takes to get back on the bike. This isn't my first rodeo when it comes to a broke wrist now I have a matching set. Next time I break a wrist I'll be sure to schedule it for say... January or Febuary.

    Yeah, I had the same exact opinion on the first two. I thought they hit it out of the park on the third installment. Major improvement.

    Thanks Gail. I'm very motivated to heal fast as it's the peak of riding season and I have a new bike. I'm glad I've been in the gym lately, I think the new muscle tone minimized the damage. Got to suppress the reflex of breaking my fall with out stretched arms. Need to work in my PLF's (Parachute Landing Falls). Tuck and roll. You'd think I'd know better.
