Very true, I think i was shaking my head as I was still sitting on my waiting to stop sliding. Just made a dumb and easy to avoid mistake, but I suppose thats a part of the learning curve to some degree.


Bike felt awesome the few laps before hand once Brandon adjusted it a bit. Wish I could have had more seat time on it that way.

Looks like the bike took a pretty good whack, still totally fixable. Glad you came out unharmed.

Well, I had a close personal relationship estabilished with the pavement today as well. I would give are really great update as to my crash and what happened but......... Since I really have very little memory as to what happened or for that matter what corner I was in when I decided that riding throught the corner without a bike sounded like a good idea. Anyway, I know that there were lots of people payin attention to me and helping me out.... THANK YOU... I would say who all you were but I can't remember anyone but Walter talking to me.

Well, when the cobwebs finally cleared out of my head I was able to load up and see that the bike crashed super well and I will be ready to go once the soreness actually goes away and let my arms and chest move comfortably.

Once again, thanks to all of the LSTD staff and the cornerworkers for all that you did to help me out.

See you at the next one,

Jerrel

To me it was a good packed. I think 22 or so people in the Street group riding plus the control riders. I can't comment on the other groups and racers practice sessions.

It was a long ways away from my previous trackdays where just about everyone fit under the covered paddock. Instead today people were spread out all any area that was paved and not marked off in front of garages. I'm sure that may have increased as the day went on depending on the rain.

Good to hear you came out relatively alright as well. I am more that I wrecked in the 2nd or third session and missed out on all the valuable track time i had paid for. I'll surely have spares all ready to go next time I'm out.

No it's not bad. A few dinged up items like the cooling return pipe and so on that I am going to try and pull from other peoples totaled bikes if I can find them.

The bodywork is Sharkskinz. It held up well, but the frame sliders went a long ways to save it too I think.
