Dunno what or why, but I've never had it this bad. Meds are hardly helping. :eh:

The rear snapped sideways coming out of that left-hander so he stood it up and rode off the track.

Cool. Maybe youtube.com or video.google.com for now? My pic site doesn't have high enough throughput for outbound traffic to host video.

i can see that he prolly had the front brake engaged as he rolled into the grass/dirt.
I had been trying to get around #799 on that orange bike for about 2 laps and finally after I got around him on the brakes at turn 3 I said to myself I could pick up the pace cuz this guy had been slowing me down a bit. So then I started being more aggressive on the gas and coming out of the left hander i spun up the rear and almost highsided but managed to control it. I was even happy that I was upright as I ran off but then there was a small rut in the gravel that my front tire went into and it just sent me sideways when I got into it. I've been off several times before (in 1, 2, 3, 6, 12) and have always managed to keep it up so I was hoping this was no different but well that didn't exactly happen. ah well...

Laugh. Go ahead. I don't mind.
I no longer have a working digicam, so I had to make do with my 35mm SLR. I reaaaaaly need another zoom lens for it - my 80-200 rolled down the side of a mountain on a hike a few years back. ARGH!

We made it a few hours into our cornerworking stint before Max and I got to talking and we realized we were both on here. When I told him my forum name... he laughed! I don't even have a reputation on here yet!
