wheelie boy is jeff brooks, one of the "z boys" from central california that's been going on triple crown rides for the past couple of years.

he was blown off his bike recently, somewhere above the 125 mph mark.

obviously, he WASN'T riding a bmw........(just had to throw that in).

having a ground-off pinkie is considered, in some circles, the mark of a 'real' recer.
I wouldn't know as I have all my fingers (but none of my mind).

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

he was NEVER "ok", even as a child.
that becomes quite obvious when you ride with him.

I still remember him landing the front end on one of Triple Crowns... looked like a 747 coming in, puff of smoke and all.

Cutting off a finger....reminds me of a scene from the John Ervin novel, "A Prayer for Owen Meaney". A good book that is.

Ok for the record it would only be half of the pinky and would leave me one of the few people with a universal sign of ( half full, fifty cents, half price, only a little gay and my personal favorite not half bad.) Now not being english or british I dont drink tea so nothing lost there, However being Italian I would undoubtely not be as outspoken. ( Some would say that would be an improvement .) So to them I say half of what I use to.


Miss you all and will see you soon. Jeff (pinky boy)

R-dog,
if you graphed a toe he would lose his balance AND have fungus between his fingers

OK I saw the x ray and it looks repair able to me. The bone is the middle phalanges and the break (the bone is still there) is at the proximal end.

Jeff B.... take a picture of the Xray with your phone. and post it so the engineers on here can comment!

I say lets cut it open and JB weld it back together and then safety wire it for speeds in excess of 100.

Or if we just can't wait..i vote to take off the last third, where the bone is gone anyway. He'll lose the fingernail area (a little over half an inch), and leave at least 2/3rds of the finger to waft in the breeze.

By the way....this has got to be the strangest poll i've seen on this board so far.

What's next? "Should we have Flatbutt neutered?"
Finally, a rational post.

most of those who have responded know jeff. and jeff i'm sure will have a good sense of humor about your comments. i also know you all too; and all i can say is you have only cemented my feelings about you. YOU'RE ALL DERANGED AND SICK!

jeffy: listen to your docs! take it off if you need to but do research first AND take your time re the decision.

however, if you take it off, can you make sure you do it before the yosemite ride?
