bruise of the meet
« on: May 22, 2008, 01:50:06 PM »
last sunday at el mirage after sheris 3rd pass i was towing her back to the pits with a tow strap --i stopped to talk to shane who was headed home --sheri pulled to the left of the truck and let slack get in the tow strap --when i took off the the bike and sheri was slamed to the ground --her leg was smashed between the air cleaner and the ground and i drug her a couple af feet --we run the tow strap around the neck of the bike then wrap it around the left grip so if anything bad happens she can let it go i think to brace herself she hung on really tight and plan A didnt work --by june i will build her a little trailer--sorry babe -- anyway here are some pics ---kids DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME     willie buchta

OUCH!!!!!

Tom G.
Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Dang Willie I'm sorry!  I didn't know we caused all that!  We just wanted to say goodbye on our way out.

Sheri, congrats on the fast run. 

Willie, I agree she had a great crew chief and builder!  However, remember who supports the crew chief!

Sheri, get well soon and I am looking forward to seeing you both in August.

Thanks to all of you for your concerns. I am doing fine. Other than a few twinges and the bruise being so ugly, it doesn't bother me. Now, Willie on the other hand, has to have my boot surgically removed from his Acura.

 Willie and Sheri,
 I strap tow Black Sunshine and a mishap like yours is something I dread. Last meet last year my son-in-law dragged me through that torn up spot on the return road and I thought for sure I was going to end up Acura over elbows. Just got lucky.
 Get well soon Sheri!
I'll keep my FREEDOM,myGUNS and my MONEY. YOU can keep the CHANGE!
