I'm assuming you meant you were glad I wasn't hurt....Overall, minor bruises and sore back, but I'm sure I'll be alright. Did you get to see the whole thing? I wish I could have had it on video

I was looking back until I heard your tires chirping so I didn't see what induced the crash. It looked like you low sided, then the bike stood up and flipped you while it went into a high side. My attention was on you sliding but I'm pretty sure your bike did a complete barrel roll before it started sliding.

Some peeps just like to talk . Ride the forest they talk . Ride the track they talk . Were u postin between sessions? Lol
FYI, Corey reports stuff like thie every trackday... hes just telling everyone whats going on at the track.

Here is another SR #1 example: Say the rider drags some part of his bike,
then shuts off the gas in surprise or alarm; instantly the bike is dragging
even more, maybe even lifting one or both wheels off the pavement. SR #1
has struck again.
What is the basic rule of throttle control?
Once the throttle is cracked on, it is rolled on evenly, smoothly,
and constantly throughout the remainder of the turn. (Say it to yourself
1000 or 2000 times)."

i am guilty of this! when my knee touched it was unexpecting and I immediately chopped the throttle. that could have been scary. if i had knee puck i prolly wouldnt have minded it. Thanks for the awesome info. maybe i need to read this book!

I didn't get there till 3:30, hung out talked with a few people.

decided to suit up and do a session.

By the time I was suited up, I was beat. ROFL

not only was it blistering hot, but I'm REALLY out of shape and have a upper respiratory infection(I shouldn't have even gone out)

anyhow, Bike felt great(Thanx Patrick/Brandon) but by the 6th lap or so, I had to just coast in the last mile or so.... I think that was about the time that Martin decided to to do the same...lol

Thanx to Tim(Bubby) for bringing my bike down from Motorcycles Unlimited to the track and home for me!

No problem! Glad you were able to go out and experience the heat for a few laps! I was pretty much dehydrated and exhausted by the end of the day! I'm ready for fall to get here!
