Last year Jake Weimer was absent from our visit to RV's digs due to the broken arm he suffered on the eve of the 2011 SX season. I figured with Jake around on this visit, the mood may be a little different from last year but it really wasn't. Ryan himself, was the same as he always is. A steady diet of sarcastic joking, clowning Matthes (and himself) and having that heir of a Dennis the Menace. He doesn't go out of his way to be overly cordial or "politician-like". Some call him a dick but he's never been one to me and when it comes down to it, I don't expect anything from these guys, so I never come away feeling like I was gyped. I'm not going to fault RV for not being Adam Cianciarulo, Nick Wey or any of the other guys who do see the value in making that effort.
