Yeah, I stumbled onto that over the weekend. It was pretty awesome. I'm actually surprised, knowing how competitive Rainey is, that he didn't try that before. Maybe there was just too many bad memories about riding something that so drastically changed his life. Glad to see him REALLY positive about it and enjoying it, that had to have taken HUGE brass ones. Hat's off to him, and to all that helped him with this.

Wow, hard not to get teary during that one. What a great video.

I wonder if he'll ride it again after Suzuka or it that'll be it for him. I'd imagine he's not drawn to riding the same way anymore given how it's changed the lives of him and his family. It's probably pretty intense on the emotions.
