M, sorry to hear about your wreck. i cant help but notice the terrible irony that i was speeding on the street and wrecked, taking minimal damage to myself and my bike, and you were fully leathered up and on a track and got more damage, and didnt you say that you got pretty beaten up?
kinda makes me feel like an

also, i totally support racing on the track vs on the street. im a bit too constantly broke to enjoy trackdays.

for the aluminium, there was a very lightly abrasive cloth(kind of like emery cloth or something) that I got for a friend w an old honda cruiser and it cleaned off all the oxydation on his parts. I found it at Suzuki of Conroe but Im sure any of our sponsors would have an idea.

Glad you aren't seriously hurt or killed, loosenoose.

For anyone that rides the street like a racetrack, please attend trackdays to get all your braking, leaning and learn all that skills. I agreed with trackheads/racers, even if you don't know how to trail brake, front brake will/is safer then rear brake. Just treat it like you are on an overpass and coming in too hot, you better get off the bike and lean and brake as much as you can OR you can stand the bike up to brake and hope that you don't fall off the bridge.

yeah, i probably could have leaned more, i was scared and i guess just in a competition mindset and not thinking calmly.

im really happy with how my crash went though. . i know i was very lucky, but i dont think it was only luck. i knew it was coming and prepared for the dump as best as i could, since i didnt know of any way i could save it.

Wise asian guy once told me......" if you think you are too hot, turn the bike harder. DO NOT STAND IT UP AND RUN OFF." To this day I see his face when I get in too hot saying turn MDF! Turnd MDF!. You'd have to hear the accent for the full effect.

Moral of the story is a low side beats any alternative when a crash looks likely in your imediate future. If you actually choose to ride like an idiot on public roads you deserve what ever "happens" to you. Triple digits, and twice posted recommended turn speeds = idiot. Chasing down riders haulin' from a stand still on the side of the road = idiot. Go ahead and do us the favor and write you own RIP thread. This thread is classic MH, seems the off season cycle has begun, keep all that great advice rollin' ya'll..........you'll get faster or die trying.

I remember you saying that at my first track day. And it seems to be one of the biggest pieces of riding advice that I remember. I have gone into a corner or two a little hotter than normal and it really works.

I have not read every post in this thread, but what I have read is great advice to learn and practice.

wow... how long have you been riding?? you're not invincible... and it really doesnt even matter how fast you're going, 149 is a very dangerous road.

i was going at or under the speed limit, crested a hill and t-boned a car left turning in front of me. he didn't see me... at all... because he was drunk. some things are out of your control, but your speed is under your control. please don't join the ranks of idiots that give sport bikers a bad reputation.

i was looking at an r6, tl1000s or r, and some other supersports, but i think i might benefit from practicing on my sv for a while longer
i would say that is a good idea. good luck. glad to see you made it out alive and well.

yaaaay! bike is up and running great now!
the rad is fine. i wasnt able to get the mount professionally re-applied, so my dad used this adhesive compound stuff that you knead and smush it onto wherever it needs to go. billy mays sells the stuff, so you know it's good! lol
we put a very thick zip tie around that and i think the rad will be held pretty snugly by it's 2 other connections if that one fails.
