    Anyone up for a Gofundme to help the guy out a little?

    Motion, it's time for me to be the dick you all accuse me unwarranted and maliciously.

    No.

    Why? Can't help someone who doesn't want it until they want it. It seems he needs help but throwing cash at the problem won't solve the problem.

    If the guy's been whacked on the head too many times, then there's not a lot he can do to help himself. If his asshole dad is making his life rough then its time for other friends to step in. Cant help but feel really badly for the guy, especially at this time of the year.

    His Dad can be an asshole no doubt but how much of what is being posted is facts and how much of it is thought to be facts.

    Blah blah blah, three sides to every story and all that shit.

    Not taking sides, not saying anyone is lying or any of that just throwing it out there.

    I don't want to jump on any bandwagon, good or bad. However I'm with Dave. If he has no plan and is living with an illness, giving him money does nothing but allows him more time in that situation. It's why I will never give a handout to a beggar, only food.

    Are we 100% its illness and not just crazy. I would like to think he would and should of had plenty of friends to catch him on the way down if he was as nice as a guy as every here thinks or says he is.

    I'm thinking maybe his wacko dad's DNA made him, and then broke him...

    Didn't Kurtis physically attack his dad back in 2016, he was living on KR property back then.

    Mental illness is a serious illness. Just because someone isn't wearing a cast doesn't mean that something isn't broken. And hindsight is 20/20, etc. Falling through the cracks can happen to anyone, and the signs aren't always obvious during the descent.

    So it’s confirmed that he has CTS or is suffering from mental illness.

    Has anyone directly contacted him?

    Speculating over anything at this point is plain silly.

    Hopefully he turns it around.
    His last lap ride at Willow to win the 2000 AMA Supersport Championship was epic.

    Exactly. By no one. Only bbs speculation.

    I hate it when people don’t know but have to fill in the blank. First it was hey he probably has CTS because of motorcycle crashes then it became he has a mental illness. Nothing but far away, no direct contact speculation.

    It’s entirely possible that he does have it, but it’s undiagnosed. I believe that’s how the speculation started on this thread.

    There's plenty of folks right here on this BBS that clearly have undiagnosed serious issues... doesn't stop us from bagging on them.

    Well of course.
    It’s also entirely possible that he doesn’t. Go back and read this thread, it went beyond speculation both CTS and then mental illness. And of course, anything is possible - we already all know this. My point is no one has made direct contact with him but already some are offering up a diagnosis etc. it’s silly.
