Sorry to hear about it!:eh:
I dont remember how fas i was going through that turn but i remember downshifted to 3rd gear and momentum was kinda in OK Mode to take a u-loop "excuse my explanation" anyway....I did see myself going down!...hence i kinda prepare myself but trust me...with all the prep...I remember seeing my front tire going off road "the same time thinking oh .." within two seconds i was wobbled, fliped and hit by head pretty good on the freaking dirt on both sides "dont know how" anyway....all over sudden i see myself sitting on my on the grass!,..it sound funny coz "i have always wondering how it feels to fall off a bike-crash or something bear in mind since i started riding i never really face anything major like this" i can tell you it aint cool/funny....from 5.44min of the video you can see me walking kinda crooked!...didnt gain full balance..i was kinda dizzy!...well after i took off the helmet and breath clean air i started feeling better 7 BETTER...anyway its a long story...i test rode my bike and with help of everyone who went with ME/US and i was able to rode it all the way home...even though i was still kinda sleepy "dont know why" with maximum headache..."i did <50mph all the way".I'm personally proud with the group..they are sooo HUMAN!...I owe ya'll ONE!,
I know my english is very bad, but well i hope you can put it together!.

I still want to go finish what i started this time may be will be tailgator!...:icon_bigg "149 has very good memories and will never be forgotten",

was that 3090? with the first decreasing radius turn?! and about 10 feet into the grass there's a barbwire fence?!

I know that turn very well. Twice riders have gone down at that exact turn, it's a surprisingly tricky turn. It almost got me when I was on the return leg. Something about that turn lulls riders into a false sense of security.

The first guy went down in almost the same spot but he flew through the barbed wire and only cut his jeans but he did dislocate his shoulder and had a concussion. OK, he wasn't so lucky, but, it could have been much worse. Really F-ed up his R1.

This is why I always recommend a slower, "dry" run before a more "spirited" ride over the same road.

3090 and 149 is not a road to practice your handling skills on. please take caution if you decide to collect yourself and go back out there. lots of people get seriously injured out there. take a trackday and humble yourself, or at least have the knowledge/ability to complete turns like that.

149 is pretty laid back in my opinion.. i have seen 3090 eat up a few people though.

As we were looking for My broken mirrors, blinkers and other minor parts we noticed lotsa BIKE parts out there, of different Model....i was so suprised!..and the gent from the other HOUSE next to that turn walked out and said..."ya'll have to move away from that turn coz people hurt themselves every-other day" - so that concluded why I and others went down!,

lol, yeah me and TXBRITT went riding the saturday night before and i noticed the nail in the back tire. i forgot about it because it never lost pressure. when we all met up sunday and were almost to 149, one of the other riders pointed it out to me, so periodically for the rest of the day id check it out.:laughing6

yeah, 149 is pretty laid back, but 3090 is tricky, not only the curves, but all the tar snakes. you guys see the groups of snakes on teh roads? they were scaring the out of me because a couple of times my front tire slid an inch or two when i hit them.
