Yeah... whack body position, adding lean angle and throttle in combo is a recipe for disaster but honestly... I am mostly unscathed and the bike just needs a clutch lever and shift lever and its good to go. Can't ask for a better outcome for a hard lesson to learn.

It's like out of a old wild west movie:

The sun reaches it's peak in the clear blue sky
A tumbleweed rolls accross the track exposing a stranded rider
Beads of sweat soaks his body as the temperature rises in his leathers
The distressed rider spots a shadowy figure approaching in the distance
(Que in western music)
He tries to shake the illusion off
The illusion remains and comes to focus
As the figure arrives,the rider realizes it's Gavin
THE legendry Fastline herRro
With a twig in his cocked smile,Gavin dismounts his rukus and hands it off to him
The rider stammers to reply
Gavin takes the rider's disabled bike and says,"Get"
The rider hops on the rukus then looks back
He can only watch as Gavin walks his bike back to the pits under the unapologetic sun
