Amazing leap forward in modern medicine technology. Extremely happy and proud of the way JLave showed how The Fighting Irish always rise to the occasion. It was so good to see John racing again in '12 alto things didn't go quite the way he would have liked. In all, he is lucky to be alive, let alone racing again. Love from the Aussie Mob Down Under. Catch you somewhere next season. Mick L

Un-believable courage and determination to achieve a top 10 in the last outing on the Kawasaki, I really hope John gets a competitive ride next year.
