Yep, 2 wrecks I would consider serious... (sent me flying and knocked my breathe out) both where caused by motards. First time was in practice and a guy caught a peg in Katy T4... his head went under my front tire and sent me over the bars. Second was at the end of the season at katy T4 when a motard decided to use my front tire as part of his line. Send me flying again. Lost Carbon's shades to the track gods on that one.

The NSR we had was fun but the Motard Andy had would always pull on us because it had more torque or something. I would race anything I could get on out there. All of it is good for some real elbow to elbow racing.
