Thanks bud, still a bit alarmed as I'm 5 months out from graduating with a BSN. Hopefully the ability to practice anywhere will help as I'm not stuck in one place. Still really alarming as this is not the first time I've heard of cuts/furloughs in the ... more »

Unfortunately I'm starting to lean that way, maybe start building up the truck instead and just being that old dude in the stands / on the hill watching and trying to get that tingly feeling you used to get throwing a leg over the bike.

Well thanks for the super discouraging reply. AD you can't just turn on and off like reservists do, so that is not an option, nor with my disability rating and just the fact I don't want to, there are a ton of downsides to AD life, reason I didn't stick ... more »

Yep, exactly what I was afraid of with nursing, lots of back, on feet, etc. all day. Maybe time to find a new hobby or just ride a CRF450L to work everyday lol.

Great to hear of a healthcare rider/racer, always would catch flack from my providers when I was in for an injury. Thanks for the tip! Just glad moto is still an option for me, life has sucked w/out it.

Awesome man, I’m assuming with unions and stuff in nursing this maybe an option. Thanks!

Thanks man for the input, I was just glancing and saw premiums for $3k a month around $70 a month for my age and health, so figured it may be a good investment and comfort when the time comes to strap the boots on.

So I left active duty a year and a half ago to pursue my 2nd degree in nursing. I'll be done in the fall and itching to get back on the bike once I'm settled but a bit worried with potential injury. One really nice thing about AD was tricare, when I ... more »

Yep, I remember having to swap those wonderful parts out, and the chain circlip. Then my 15 was a pray and hope its not a part of the crank failures/recalls. Though I will say, all of my Yamaha's were pretty damn reliable, but I'm a slow weekend warrior. ... more »

Wont play for me, keeps glitching repeating the RC piece from when he raced as a kid. Tried restarting app, signing in and out, different devices, etc. NBCgold is a joke for the MX crowd, nothing but problems constantly.
