Really glad the rider wasn't injured to badly.

Good thing is the bike isn't in to bad of shape, Can't wait to see the finished product.

That's going to look good. The Graves Yami's are the best looking bikes on the AMA grid.

after asking around, the only thing we can come up with is that the tires got "HOT" witch in this case became greasy from the heat.

The only 2 ways this would have been prevented would have been by ether slowing down.. or increasing the tire pressure so the tires didn't get as hot as they did. (so I've been told)
I'm glad their are detailed solutions or theories of how this crash happened. It's good for others to know especially noobs like me. How is he so far?

He's doing a lot better (Thanks for asking)
The 1st 2 weeks could not walk. Now he's moving around.

Can't wait to get back out there.

Well... the paint job is all done!
Still got some work to do with here, paint the wheels white and a few other things here and there.
Just need to hit 212 to get some decals and finish this body.

Here are some pictures of what the body looks like.
Tony Ta did an awesome job with the body.

Thanks again.
