Hey all... Thanks for the thoughts... I'm fine. More sore from all weekend riding than the wreck.

It was a combination of cold street tires and too much twist of the right hand! I knew as I started accelerating that I was too aggressive too soon. This was my fifth track day and I learned a great deal!

I bent the right rear set pretty bad to the point that I didn't feel comfortable riding it. I tried to bend it back but that stuff is tough! Ended up taking the rear set apart and with the help of the local Suzuki shops hydraulic press, we were able to get things straightened out. The rest is cosmetic but boy does that stuff cost alot! LOL... Oh well!

All in all it was a great weekend. Thanks Tim for helping me make more great memories! We'll see you all next track day for sure...

Tom

Some days are like that but most of them walk away. No curbs, no trees, no cars to run you over...
