If Chit is about to go down... get ready to box!!!! MSRH 19th (crash)

I Had a mothafking blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went and spend all day been a control Rider on Lv3 and went out to help out in Lv 1 & 2 with Riders that were riding over their head or not staying on the line.. helped out with riders that crashed and got them off the impact zone so the day worked out really good!! UNTIL....

On the last session of the day I went out to play with EK, I didn't looked at my rear tire but it was gone!! it was cooked! went into Sugar and spice and lost the rear...

Here is a video and picture of it! *if you have any pictures please post it up* Ms V.. get to it please! lol

Draggingelbows

Over all I had a blast!!! cant tell you how much fun I had !

The damage to my bike is nothing! clip ons and wind screen.. small crack on right side crank case cover but I GOT THIS!!!!!!

Thank you all that made this day happen!

Thank you Mikep for doing and awesome job as TM.. all the corner workers also did great!

I learn something new... you need to inspect your tires every time you're off the track.. I didn't know what my tires would look like once they are done!
My fault and stupid mistake.

Now I know.. everyone that looked at it was like "dude!! wtf are you doing?? tires are done!!" I was like wht?? I can't ride it any more? :lolz:
This is what a good tire looks like..

P1040910800x600

this is what my tires look like....

P1040911800x600

and here are some pictures of my bike..

P1040912800x600

P1040913800x600

P1040914800x600

P1040915800x600

I checked my tire pressure all day but didn't see how much tire I had left.. lesson learned!

Now... I need just a few parts and I'm back out there for some more!!!!!!
