im ok, limpin aroung a little just because bruised heel.
bruised , and jammed right thumb. thats it, for the way the crash looked you would have thought worse seeing me fly through the air.
as for the bike, its not too bad, some body work, gas tank, and new vortext peg, and clip on bar.
nothing to serious, a quick fix, i was fortunate, the outcome could have been worse

yeah it happens, i know it more than likely wont slow me down, i have wrecked on the street plenty, got right back up and ripped it, same with motocross, you cant let a wreck get you down, or mess with your head.

only thing that would slow me down is physical illness from a wreck, that you can't control, and is the biggest drawback from wrecking.

What's the scoop on T11 (trackday)? I've come close to HS'd on occasion... is there a dip, depression on the track surface that causes this? Not counting rider error ...

Good to hear you'll be alright...

11, if it's a problem, is that it can be slick for some reason if you hammer the throttle on the wrong line. I've had a pretty nasty crash there and dang near high sided. Luckily for me, the rear kept spinning and came all the way around low-siding me without re-gripping.

I've also clipped the curbing with my rear set peg that made the back step out, but that's not the corner.

As near as I can tell from walking that corner and riding it hundreds of times, is that it's a pavement thing, there's no "dip" or "depression" that I could really find.

I think the problem is that the cars have really polished the concrete in that corner. Add the fact that you typically are hard on the gas there to get a good drive to the next corner (short staright away). It all adds up to a corner that is very well know for highsides.

^^^ thanks for the tires bro

and as for riding that turn, ima be more careful around it, because i didn't feel that i was REALLY to hard on the gas out of it, but hey who knows, ill just watch my back.

like tom said, he slid all the way around, i wish that happened to me, i should have just tried to spin it out and slide but it happens so fast you dont have time to really act on that.
