Guys I rode with were great and made sure I was OK
I thought I saw something about someone going down... Was it during the Sunday Ride?

Good thing you're ok man...

Got pics? I was lucky enough to have Helios there super eager to go picture crazy lol

I was hoping to use it how it is right now for track, just in case anything happens there too...

I can get pics. And all the right parts of my body are funtioning ( a bit sore on my left shoulder). The brake pedal was replaced, Now the bike is more naked than before and looking for some handlebars. Not that much do destroy when you ride a tractor.

Ok everyone, stay off the streets. There's gravel and sometimes even cars. You might get run over by dumb mofos texting. Oh, and motorcycles are dangerous, so stay off of them

The thread started off with them trying to "lean" so dont even say the werent trying to go fast.. I though most people would at least scope out a road before they barrel down it.. CALL ME CRAZY

BTW.. you jest, but this could have been a rip thread instead.. Just saying..

Ok sir...Please go back to the original post...

at no point did I say I was taking pics on that turn or road, we took that road on our way as a short cut. the turn is a 20mph turn...

I usually tke turns 20mph and under, at posted speed... Those other pictures were on a turn that has very low traffic and we all are familiar with. that turn was clear of gravel.

I hope this clears it up for you.
