Suggestions??

So, I did Texas World Speedway on Saturday. I felt great. Lap times just aren't what I was looking for. My body position is good, looking into the turn like I'm supposed to.

Maybe you guys can take a look at this pic and tell me what I'm doing wrong

Wreck 1


I have NO idea how I managed to get on top of the bike and surf it. I know you're supposed to seperate yourself from the bike but it's hard to make yourself dismount when you're avoiding the pavement from where you are.



Nothing too bad. Damage after a bath:

Ground off throttle sleeve/ throttle grip

busted master cylinder (was planning on installing SS brake lines - just found an interesting way to drain the lines)

starter switch housing busted open but I got it back together/ in working order

oil leak but it was just a pinched filter gasket

plastics are trashed / tie wraps FTW!!

Suggestions??

Well, you had the rubber side pointed the wrong direction...
..but you get points for being fairly limber. :-)

Glad you are ok BossLady. You're also luck that bike didn't roll up on you after you hit the grass (I saw the sequence of shots Hart managed to get).

Maybe just a little less lean? And a little more throttle? But you do show determination

YEAH, i don't think so homie! have you ever had a lowside, or even a highside???

if it were a lowside, she wouldn't be sitting on top of the bike. had to have started as a highside and she got lucky OR, it could have been a lowside, the bike spun around and scooped her up ontop of it but i think that is unlikely. either way, glad you didn't get hurt and that is an awesome picture.
