John Abbott crashed!
I just got off the phone with him, he was riding yesterday with Amy and came off his GPR at 83.5mph!
He has a dislocated shoulder, busted eardrum, swollen right eye, broken ribs and he is sore all over. He is doing fine. He is not in the Hospital and is resting at home...SO PLEASE DON'T CALL HIM, he has video of the incident so when he gets on he'll post it.
Just keep him in your prayers...he is one sore puppy right now.
Oh yeah...he heard something go crunch underneath the ski before it tailhooked and threw him. He has'nt been able to go check it out...but it looks like another EXPLODING INTAKE GRATE!!!
Oh mods..if you could keep this here on the performance side for a few hours since it was probably an intake grate failure..thanks.

Water aint water at 83+mph, it gets harder the faster you go. Best wishes for a speedy recovery John

Did he scream like he did in Mudbug? Have a cocktail and heal up John!
