I do not know where the oil was. What i do know is that Ride Smart has a policy about safe riding and if you get out of line they will send you home. Neither you nor I saw this for ourselves, and opinions in general tend to flow with who someone likes... so IMO the official opinion on whether or not he was being an would be Ride Smart, if they let him continue riding, the official opinion says he was not being an ... no matter who our friends are. If they ended his day and sent him home that makes it a whole nuther story.

SR, Is there really a point to this or are you just trolling? There is already a thread about Umayr's actions and he already spoke his peace about it. If you have issues with a rider, don't ride with them, simple as that. happens and we move on, well most of us anyways.

Quit being a troll, your not very good at it.

Can we get this thing closed already?

Yea SR- as much as I'd like to vent too (unrelated to this incident) you should drop it. I feel like most guys have the same idea of what happened, and why, and that- in at least one point he admitted the fault- regardless of related excuses.

not trolling here, just posted in behalf of a friend..... i have ridden with him before so i know how he is in person, the point of this thread is to hear people's opinion and how they would go about it if it happens to them, some ppl take it personal, i sure dont....

pit lane is part of the track.
Accidents can happen there and have seen many people drop bike on thier own in the pit area. happens. I would think if you totaly messed up by doing something stupid then you might offer some kind of help. But this is a tracday and it is pretty much ride at your own risk. No one can garuntee that soemthing wont happen.

Have seen two ride colide in pit lane. One had stopped at the end of the track to look back after being wave to go ahead and enter the track. Next ride back was waved on to the track and was looking back while accelerating to enter the track.
Stopped rider should have never stopped at the end of the track and second ride could have looked front and back. happens.

If two riders come around the corner and cloide then you both pick up your bikes because you were both going to fast and fix your own stuff.
