I saw Karl on Easter Sunday and he was sitting outside with family and playing with his dogs. The fact that he has gotten better so fast is a true miracle. He is healing like a teenager. He has lost some weight but that is to be expected. It is great to see the result of so many prayers. He is going to be at the half mile event in Houston, which is unbelievable considering the extent of his injuries. I am in awe of him and his family and the way in which they have handled this whole thing. We could all take a lesson from thier example. God is good!

That is great to hear! I hope that he continues to mend well and hopefully he will be back to doing what he loves soon.

Talked to Karl yesterday. His finger pinning and clavicle plating surgery was a success. All tubes etc. are out and he expects to be released on the 26th. It will be nice to be home with home cooking and the pups to play with. Still a lot of healing to go but he has made amazing progress. I know he appreciates everyone's thoughts and prayers. LSL

Karl just called, man it was GREAT hearing his voice. Like LSL said, Karl was in great spirits & very upbeat. His mind was as sharp as ever, some question there ;-) as he was going over dates and events.

He was very touched and appreciative of everyone here who has posted and remembered him in their thoughts & prayers.

RIght now I will stop writing to "Thank the Lord" that Karl is still here and will recover!


hey Vincent, wondering how you were. :-) Making a couple trips to DC later this year (Skins games).
Are you still in NW?

Interesting that watching a show yesterday "through the wormhole", the term Entropy was mentioned many times and explained as Chaos developing as the result of bodies and mass colliding, distorting the future.

Wow; coming in months late on this. Glad to see your on the mend Karl. I've been absent for quite awhile as I'm mainly playing w/the ZRX1200 these days. I sold my 00' ZX12R to a guy in Fort Worth after a decade of ownership.

I miss it dearly as I still consider it the most fun bike I ever owned. Now that they getting quit inexpensive I might get another someday. Hope your feeling better soon; mending sometimes can take forever. Been there done that! Just be patient, it will all come back to ya & you be back aboard soon.

Prayers & get well soon bud!

hey Dave, good to see you alive and still kicking!
For a streetbike the ZRX or something very like it would be my choice.

I too miss my 12, gave it my all, but in the end, it just didn't have the hp needed to pull my TFA to the speeds i wanted.

For the rest of this year i am having friends ride my 2 Busas.
At least i am still going to the tracks, but i sure miss twisting the throttle :-(

Yeah know what you mean. My problem w/my 12 was TFA...@ 300lbs. I just didn't fit it anymore; it became painful to ride, so it sat in the garage mostly. Went to the Sears Point bracket drags a few times for grins & the local twisties once & awhile.

Kept picking the ZRX because it's much more comfy. After sitting over a year I decided it was senseless paying for the big Ninja sitting still so decided to sell when I got a decent offer. I wanted to keep it as a "collectable" ever since getting it in May 00' but just couldn't justify the expense; especially after a stroke & going on SSDI. Just couldn't afford it not working anymore...

So nowadays I just ride the 02' ZRX1200 occasionally when I'm up to it; due to decreased functionality, I've slowed about 80% & have to add time for slowed reactions. Putting less than 2K miles per year on it last few seasons. Still a huge enthusiast & into watching racing, & I spend a lot of time on local sites & the ZRXOA.org site. So still around the sport quite a bit.

Wish I could find some pics on here of the old Ninja. I lost everything in a lightning strike & pc blow up. I can't find any pics of the "beastie" anywhere. There was another ZX12R site 10 years ago but I can't find it- I had a lot of pics there...

C'ya

Your 12 Never Bit you in the Ass like that Busa did either!! :

From Personal Experience (Remember I spent 3 years and 8 operations to save my life and leg) having patience with yourself is the most difficult part!

The real truth is, it is not being young that allows you to heal fast, you must still be "Growing" to heal fast! So for most people somewhere between 14 and 18 they become OLD! I did not heal any faster when I was 23 than I did at 55 years old!

At Best it takes a little over a year! At worst it takes about 3 years! I think you are somewhere in between! HANG IN THERE

I am also enjoying nmy ZRX , the 250 Ninja and Every day riding a 50 MPH Tomos Street Mate R Moped (The fun there is the Bike lanes and chaining to the Parking meter for NO Money and No License Plates for the Speed Camera to get!

I'm gonna have to ask for GPS proof of said 50 mph Tomos! Best I did was 50 mph flat out with a 70cc Sprint 2 stroke downhill. Try explaining a 50 in a 30 zone to them fairfax boys w/out a license/reg/ins.
