Fist of all the people at Nola are super.

But to make a long story short. It was sunny but cold at Nola. I went out after lunch but by pit end my bike starts to loose power. Came out turn off and on the bike to recycle. After four laps of the same I park the bike.

One of the instructors helpins me and I conclude that the self mapping unit or either the Bazzaz fuel control unit had a poor connection. After tinkering with the wires he, the instructor, suggest that I try the bike out but in the parking lot along the pit end.

Not his fault, but hindsight that was a bad suggestion. By then my slicks were completely cold, that particular parking area is unused dusty and has a dip.

I got on the bike put helmet on and no need for gloves, right. Just riding up and down. The bike seems to run ok shift to second and then hit that dip and on the exit the bike wheelies. I though okay no problem but when the tire came down it just lowside.

I agree, but the wheelie wasn't on purpose. Coming out of the deep the bike wheelie. The bike power was erratic.

The bike only suffer body work. The doc in New Orleans wanted me to stay overnight to see a hand surgeon for a hole on my left hand but luckily he was able to sent photos to a top hand guy and he said it won't need surgery just debridment.

So, they got antibiotics i.m. and I put my big boy pants on and got my wounds debridement with no painkillers so I could drive back.

Basically scrape the tissue that is hanging and the remove dirt and gravel. Plastic brush with iodine and rinsing. They used some local anesthesia but doesn't help much. And since I told them I was driving back they didn't give me any of the good stuff. They did give me a prescription for the pharmacy.
