dragging knee over curbs and grass....

finally bit me in the ! i was going through the gravity bowl (turn 7) at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and somehow caught my knee on the curbing and it ripped my leg right off the peg. i thought i was going down for sure cuz the bike got unsettled nasty. left me with a bruise and a sore leg.

lesson learned: when riding tight lines and dragging knee over curbing or past the edge of the track, keep your knees in close.
