As part of the result from the crash was 3 weeks of amnesia, I'll let my good friend Lacy Kemp's article in March 2012's Decline do the telling for me ("Dream Destination: Peru"). My version is a bit fuzzy to say the least. I have been back to riding a little less than 2 months and feel great. I owe every bit of my recovery to my friends, family, supporters, and the biking community as a whole. So THANKS!! If you're riding in the PNW or the WBP, look for the big dude shredding in an eye patch and say hi for a high five. Everyone's love is something I will never forget.

Watching this is one of the very few times in the past 5 months since my crash in Peru where the double vision has been rad!

Added a product review for Urge Endur-O-Matic Open Face Helmet 12/28/2011 9:11 AM

Life Saver


The Good: - Saved my life(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) - Comfortable - Much lighter than it looks - Stylish - -Confidence Inspiring w/ more all around protection

The Bad: - A bit warm on super hot days or very long climbs - Visor warped a bit after being in the sun on a black table in 80 degree heat for 8 hours at our expo booth (plus side is that if the visor is removed it can be set back to flat pretty easily with a heat gun and something big heavy and flat)

Overall: This thing saved my life. Not in a figurative "I got a small branch to the head, OMG" way, in a completely literal life-saving way. Read on for a few more details. I took a very serious crash in Peru in the fall (see March 2012 Decline for more deets on the trip and crash). Absolutely every doctor I've seen said had I not been wearing a helmet I surely would have died (some even laughed at the question). Also every one of them said had I been wearing a less protective helmet I would have most likely come out out of the wreck with serious permanent brain damage. I'm off the bike for a few more months, but my recovery is going amazingly well (most people would still be in bed now, not out building trails and riding their trainer 5 days a week). I owe a massive portion of that to Urge, their awesome US distributor, and my Endur-O-Matic. Although pretty clearly unusable now the lid keeps a prominent spot on my gear shelf. All things considered that benefit probably outweighs any cons, eh?
