how i got broken

a few years back i was riding thru a fairly easy section of crazy banked switchbacks well i was goint a lil too fast for one threw my bike into a slide to try and even myself out but didnt worki hit slid over the bank and basically rode on my knee the whole way down and eventually hitting a large rock stopped me, i spent alot of time in physiotherapy medications, luckly no surgery was needed, but about 2 years afterwards i was ready to get back into it.......just my luck i hurt the same knee again snowboarding, i was boardsliding a rail and fell into the stairs destroyed my board and yeah that was a lil worse but 2 more years later and 1 year at golds gym 2-4 times a week my knees are stronger than they have ever been, part of my decision to buy a bike and get back into it was i spent the last year and a half as a British Columbian Forest Firefighter and ive seen some extreme spots that i would love to do some insane riding in some pretty remote areas that i know like the back of my if anytime after august (thats when my bike comes in) someone wants to go for a cruise with me and a few friends in the kamloops B.C area drop me a line at [email protected]

Yup no joke Grey Co contracting thats the company i work for and yeah bad luck indeed, as far as calling it aching, well thats an understatement to say the least its more of a burning that consumes me more and more each day and the one thing that can put it out is still 28 days away :( :( :( but i have her picture and i look at it every day and im praying that my local LBS patron will be a god and manage to get her hands on an 05 stinky in 28 days

here she is, i really hope i can get this, the 04' stinky is cool......but look at that, is that not a nice bike?
