Thanks man, it felt harder than it was... My left hand was bugging me but feel a lot better today. Just bruised I think.

That's a ton of gravel, I'm sure everyone here can understand how difficult it would be to control the bike through that in a turn. Looks like the bike has been down before (red paint underneath) so hopefully you aren't heartbroken about having to paint it again. Glad you didn't get hurt dude!!

The important question is.. DID YOU LEARN ANYTHING FROM IT?

Yeah, I'm sure it has been down but not how severe... Funny thing is I was planning on painting it

Yes, yes I did.

Don't ever take that road again

I'm actually trying to see if the track will let me ride it like that still this 14th... the front fairing is pushed in not letting me turn the steering all the way to the left, just slightly. so "parking lot" turns are tricky... but not higher speed ones.

i still rode it home and there were some nice sweepers along the way.

Track teaches you what to do in the event of a ton gravel/dirt/rocks on the roads?
Let's not let this turn into yet ANOTHER track vs street debate.

Send a message via AIM to Scorpio
Surprised MH-CSI hasn't come in here yet to re-construct the event and tell you what you did wrong.

Looks like a litter box in that turn.
Glad you're okay bro.
