If you took the topical version - yes. You are most likely using the homeopathic remedy which is extremely dilute and works on a very different principle - stimulating your body's own specific healing response. Perhaps for this reason the topical version is more effective in those situations where it can be applied. Or you could do both.

How was your ride home anyway?... and what's the Temp over in Sedona right now?... marine layer here, nice and cool!
Well, I enjoyed the company (a nice way of saying; got in the way of) the esteemed Bradley and his delightful fair companion for the evening. I left at 0300 was in Yuma by 6 and home at 10:30. The ride was calm and warm ... because I put the bike in my pickup

Currently clear blue skies and 87F and 12% RH.

July brings the monsoon. So while it will still be warm the frequent promise of dynamic thermo-aquatic events makes it tolerable. June is the month to hide from.

So ... when we have the Northern Arizona sixth leg of the California Triple Crown , should it be in April or November?

Oh crap! Sorry about that... !!! I thought we were doing good on time. Really enjoyed hanging and riding my brother!! I'm telling you....... Yosemite!!!!!!

Oh Crap #2. Yep those cages are just as dangerous! Glad all is well.

It was great right up to the place where I missed the turn and continued straight down the dirt road. LOL.

I was just trying to decide if I had past a hash mark out of the corner of my eye, when the asphalt turned to dirt. But all went great. That part of the road was "the horse I had to get back on" ...... John L. ... it was dry, sunny, perfect viability, and even with the dirt and cut grass clipping sprinkled out of someones truck.... none of it slowed me down.

John, I even recognized the driveway we rode up last year cause we could not see the road... FYI now it has a gate!

I got some of the road on video.... but it will take a few days to get that all done....

Jony, It was fan fricking taskic. I don't think any one got sick.. did they?

myself, I got to do a little tree top skimming, when the lt. colonel running the simulator says "Watch out for those powerlines.." yikees up and over.. fire a few misses and feel the airframe shake as they leave the aircraft and track and explode on target. Damn..... thank you Sonny!!!

I am a geek about this stuff and was blown away by the terrain maps, and avionics, and particle physics, and networked sims and and and.... a geek heaven right there on the coast of california!!!

Then we got to see the NEW simulator that is just getting started. Unlike the Whiskey, the Zulu is Glass cockpit, Fully redundant controls front and rear seat and even with the whole system sitting on the ground the visuals can literally have you grabbing for something solid. Your brain thinks you are flying .. period.

SO AMAZING

THANK YOU SONNY!

Is it the same photographer who was there last year? He took a great one of Tony and I riding together. I had it on my desktop but the computer ate dust. I'd like to contact him to get a copy of that pix.

Well, as you may have noticed, Jeff and I were "in tow"... we were just a little to fast to have made that turn anyway... the ***** was just for me to push the darn bike backwards on that dirt road, with my bum knee and all...

Yeah, I'd like to see that video, looked interesting enough to just watch you film it...

Roger, Ralph and Cindy,

Thank you for the kind words. The "riding" is what it is all about for me. I do love riding anything on two wheels. and here with this group I feel so at home and playful.

Typically when I am riding with new people there is, for me, a sense of having to watch over some of the other riders riders. be more restained as to not tempt someone past their limits.
But with you, my riding family (Triple Crown and Zrated riders) it is great seeing everyone taking responsibility and checking their egos at the door. It is just one of the many reasons you all are an incredible group to ride with. I am glad that that my sense of joy shows, because riding with all of you, it is just that, a joy.

...what makes it so enjoyable is the fact that you and the rest of the girls and guys all can ride the hell out of a bike but are very un-assuming about it. Everyone goes as they feel comfortable - there is no "rolling of the eyes" if someone goes a little slower or faster for that matter...

So, if I am allowed to participate in future rides, I'll try to make every one of them...
