Anyone catch my crash at MSRH on 08/09 in lvl2?

Anyone catch my crash at MSRH on 08/09 on video? It was the first lap of the second session in lvl2 on the carousel. I had just passed two riders on the exit of Diamond's Edge so maybe one of them had a camera. All the broken parts are on the left side of the bike, but it ended up on its right side.

Or any witnesses. I'm curious how much it and me tumbled. Other than not crashing, my biggest regret is that I had not yet mounted my cameras. I had the mounts all set for one facing forward and one rearward.

This was my first crash.

It all happened so fast. Before I even hit the ground, I was thinking what an idiot I was and how I was going to delay everyone by needing the crash truck, my second thought was amazement that this old man wasn't hurt, and my third thought was , this is only the first lap and now I have to stand here in the heat for 19 minutes until the session is over.

The bike fared pretty well with one exception:

b and c

Just plain stupidity. Hit the carousel too fast for my skill level, ran out of track, and tried to straighten up and ride it out through the grass - didn't work.

Dang that sucks. Glad you're ok, but that frame is toast! You might be able to find a used one over on zx6r.com though...
