Does anyone know what Travis Pastrana is doing next year? Is he riding the 2004 Supercross/motocross or is he just doing the Freestyle for a while? Also does anyone know what bike he will be riding? Is he still with Suzuki these days?

No one knows if he's riding or not. It's safe to bet that he will crash something though.

Cut and pasted from his weeks Racerhead column @racerxill.com"
The World Rally Championships last weekend witnessed a lot of smiles and a big crash from Travis Pastrana, who pushed a little too hard and ended up barrel-rolling his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII. Offering an explanation for his dramatic exit, he said: “I was trying to leave my braking as late as possible to keep up, but I guess that was a little too late!”
Hmmm JP got the ESP going on? :laugh:

I have heard too many rumors flying around on what he is riding/racing this upcoming year. But I do know that he has been racing a rally car. And actually last night, I caught a little bit of the SpeedNews and they were showing highlights from a Rally Car race. He was the fastest qualifier on Friday, and then during his race on Saturday he crashed, and rolled the car a few times. They didn't say much about it but it was a pretty bad crash, (I guess, I didn’t watch rally car so I couldn’t tell you what a bad crash is).

Is TP competeing in the highest class on the WRC? If so, then I am impressed crash or no. To me the WRC is the ultimate in auto racing (just don't care about nascrap or f-1) and if he is competeing with those guys he really has done very well in a short time (and I don't know of any other Americans on the WRC circuit). If he can turn in a sucessfull ralley career than maybe all of his talent isn't wasted.

Sad to say, but it may already be. I mean if you just tip over and bump your head and end up with a discussion, your head is pretty bad.

One discussion isn't so bad, but if you have multiple/consecutive discussions, there is a cumulative effect and that is where the trouble begins.
