I know this is an older thread, but looks like David had a bad get off yesterday and is need of the moto communities prayers and well wishes.

I don't now any details of his situation other than what is in the description of the Gofundme that was set up by a friend of his, but I've known David for many years and he's good person that has been scratching out a living on a dirtbike on his own since he was a teen. I was at Hangtown yesterday, but there was a big off road GP running in the park and I guess that's where his crash happened.

Here's the Gofundme if you're inclined to help out a downed privateer, either way your prayers and well wishes would still go a long way!

This bad news is like a kick in the gut. David is one of the good guys, and has always gone out of his way to help others. Now is the time to help him if you can.

David is a truly genuine guy, and at this time he has no feeling from the nipples down. He went through a successful surgery to repair his T5 ...his spinal cord seems to be stable. It will be a tough road ahead no matter what. If there is any chance that any of the vital community can contribute to him and share his go fund me it would mean the world. Thank you.

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

This sux. I feel so bad for you David, I don't know if the damage is permanent or not, and to what extent. I don't know what the science community will be able to do in the future for you and our fallen brothers. I hope there will be something. I think it will, but when is the big question.

I also I hope your agony and pain will be to the minimum, but how can the agony be to a minimum at this point? Try to keep the hope up, don't be ashamed if you get pissed, sad or whatever, but hang in there.

Hugs from Sweden.
