now if his bike fell apart and he/she wrecked because of that. then ok.

it would be like me hoping on the stunt bike, and without warming up just going straight to a highchair... i dont know if my tires are going to grab, if my handbrake is going to work, if my reactions are even on point on that day........

ya feel me....??? very silly to wreck in the first session.

Glad to see you were ok, that was a nasty spill you took. You were going good out there too, the corner you went off is known for high sides. Little less gas laddie. Ye took that crash like a champ Hope ye get the bike fixed up soon.

You can post em up. Won't bother me any. Thanks for taking them Steve, your rock for sure.

Special thanks to Irish, Bossman, Bubby and the other instructors who were helping me out this afternoon. I was feeling really good untill I ran out of talent out there. I'm gonna have the 6 hooked up soon so I'll be on the road ripping it up with you guys soon enough.
