I prepaid my entry fee for FIM, got an expensive EKG exam, pre-paid medical, medical, etc. well over a $1K, and spent at least $5K on bike parts...and didn't get to go to Bub's.  Can I roll that over for next year and go first?

There was a woman on a turbo 'busa, Leslie(?) Porterfield, who went down at speed shortly thereafter, while we were tearing down my bike in impound. I don't know anything about the crash except someone told me she had broken some bones. I do know she had run as high as 194 earlier, so she's not some shrinking violet, she was going for it. I don't know anything about her bike

Anyone hear any updates on this lady? As one of the ambassadors for the broke wing club I'm wondering if we have a new inductee. wink
If anyone knows her please pass on our well wishes for a speedy recovery & the hopes that her injuries aren't too severe.

Leslie should of rolled into Dallas late last night.  She has seven broken ribs and a punctured lung (no flying home).  She has a few other bumps and bruises otherwise in great condition and spirits.  We will be rebuilding her Busa, or building another.  She will be back, rest assured.

Max
It is likely another post occured on the same subject as you were typing yours and if after sending it you scrolled down their would be a RED warning to inficate that you might want to read it first.
If you just post it and hope it went, it might not.
Hit the backup button repatedly and hope it brings you back to your original post and send it again.
GOOD LUCK wink

What's up with this thing?   Just wrote my second message answering questions, posted it and it didn't come up either.  Tried what you suggested, Jack. It didn't work. 

P. S. If this is posted, why aren't the others?

Jack has a point there about the timed out. 

If you are typing in a lot and it takes some time what I do is hold the right mouse button on and drag the mouse over my whole post then right click and then click on "copy".  If it times out and loses it then you can start a new post and right click and "paste" what you had typed and then try re-posting it.

clear as mud uh................  cool ,

Ouch! That's gotta hurt! Sad Seven, Dodge!
Please pass on our well wishes to her. I hope the pain is not too bad and the meds are plentiful!!
Thanks for the update. BTW, was that her personal best top speed? If so pass on a hearty
congratulations to her too! (Sheesh I hope it was her top speed, makes the recovery period
at little easier to handle when you know you're sitting around because you've ran faster then
you've ever been! Wink )
