Sorry to hear about the ditch; glad to hear you got away with it more or less unharmed. You'll be sore today.

Classic example of "choose your group wisely" and "ride your own ride".

If you ever get that "over my head feeling" slow down.
If the group you are with is pressuring you to go too fast, find another group.

Peer pressure sucks... you may feel like you are pressured while they may not feel like they are pushing you... but it's your right wrist.

When you get back on the bike and want some pointers hit me up.

dude. that sux. but at least you are ok.

If you decide to rebuild the bike on your own, I will give you a header and muffler off my 750, it will need the connecting gasket but its in perfect condition.

Just let me know.

Lesson learned. ALWAYS ride your own ride. NEVER feel pressured to "keep up". We all have our own skill levels and we improve upon our skills by pushing our limits, not by trying to keep up with someone else's limits.

Glad you're OK.

It's pretty ironic that someone in the video is dissing a Ducati rider for his slow speed as he's passing by a crash scene
