Hey Patricia,
Why don't you give us a full run down of the gear you had on. It looks like some of your stuff did not take the crash to well and I am curious to know if you had a back protector on. If so, which make and model.

PS - I am suprised you have been hiding those sexy legs from us for so long.

wow, glad to see ur still alive to be on the forum,let us know if you need anything. also since the hat who broke the rules,i think he should be responsible for your bills and fix your bike.after all it was his fault and he admitted to it. but main thing you're o.k., can always replace a bike not a person.

"I hope the rider learnt what his total disregard of rules and making a mistake while doing so cost another rider who was out there to have a good time just like he did. If it had been my mistake or an accident, it was one thing but it was his first time out on a track and he needs to know that there is something such as rules and sportmanship, even on a trackday. "

...personally I'd be out for a little blood and $. Sounds like he clean took you out with his own stupidity and he should be coughing up some assitance.

Your injuries should heal up nicely... so no big worries there! But still curses at the guy who was so impatient...

The leathers were borrowed from a friend (whom I owe a new set of leathers now). The jacket is a Joe Rocket woman, not sure what model, with CE rated padding. No back protector. I felt the jacket fit good but now I know why they recommend that the leathers fit as tight as a wetsuit. It is possible the arm shifted in the slide.

The pants are Fieldsheer pants, not sure of model. I think the rash on the knee is a carpet burn (it has black stuff around it).

Overall, I think the leathers held up really good considering that I fell in front of my bike and was pushed across asphalt while being totally unconscious. The main doctor at the hospital told me that the helmet and the leathers saved my life.

The leathers are all cut up from the EMTs, so the pictures aren't really good:

Here are the pics:

Shoulder on the back:
Crash022 web

The pants:
Crash024 web

The one leg:

Crash023 web


The boots are regular Sidi women boots, summer, water proof. I already wished I had worn real racing boots. Then I didn't have the injury I have now.

Lessons learnt: Even if it is a group C class and the pace is supposed to be moderate to slow, a crash is a crash. I would highly recommend a back protector now and racing boots. Definitely leathers. I know some organizations allow textiles in group C, which I strongly oppose now. It will not be safe.

Remember that for the street as well. Gear is only as good as get it and wear it. It could've been a car t-boning me out there on some road.

woman, I'm sorry to hear about this. Hope that you heal up quick and proper. If you need anything at all give me shout. This is the perfect example of what I was telling yankee about why I'm not sure of taking the bike to the track. There's always a chance some moron won't follow the rules and who gets punished for it unfortunatly . Anyways chica, I'm certainly glad things weren't much worse. Rest up, heal up, then saddle back up.

Not a strange question at all.

The ankle and the fleshwound hurt the most. The foot is really swollen. On the way home, it was just throbbing and even putting the foot up on the dash didn't help. The hydrocodone didn't do a dang thing either. Nights are bad because it causes my calf to cramp up and then I want to walk around. Walking feels a bit better after icing it and doing a hydrotherapy session. I'll have to keep doing that. I can't use crutches because of the broken collar bone.

Surprisingly, the collar bone doesn't hurt bad at all, at least not in relation. Once in a while, I pop the shoulder weird and it pinches but overall, it is not too bad.

3rd is the back pain coming from the chipped back bone.

Hi stranger! Yeah, this was my worst fear, getting hit by someone else. :confused1

Thanks for the well-wishes!

See if the fool had insurance and get your insurance company after them. If insurance is going to pay for track day wrecks then they should be responsible for the people that they insure and most folks in C group are riding their street bikes and may have insurance. But whatever you do make sure that you get yourself fixed up.

All things considering, I think your injuries overall are not too terrible and like most have said, it could have been way worse. As far as who you are as a person, your attitude is certainly commendable. I know for a fact that if some asshat were to totally disregard the "rules" I would not be so calm about the situation. I feel really bad and I wasn't even involved. All of the you will have to deal with because of someone else's lack of concern. If the group was too slow for him, he should have either 1.) pitted and went and asked to be bumped for the next session or 2.) rode like a level headed person does in the 1st session knowing the track was still "green" and that he was in the C group with fairly new riders until that session was over. I'm still pretty upset to hear that he was bumped into the "B" group after this mishap. Everyone makes mistakes, but to disregard rules and then not be "punished" for your actions makes absolutely no sense to me. I thought I recalled Ronnie saying that the C group would allow no passing on the inside AT ALL and that not following rules would result in not being allowed to ride the next session/or the rest of the day. At any rate, as for your attitude and outlook on this accident.... you, my friend, are totally cool in my book.:notworthy

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY NO NAMES NEED TO BE MENTIONED TO THE PUBLIC.

all involved parties should keep it between themselves.

"He said he passed a couple of riders, came in too hot, blew the turn..."

So basically he was riding over his limit. This is what is turning me off about trackdays lately. These idiots that think they're in a race. YOU CAN'T WIN AT PRACTICE!!!
