So far, I've taken a total of two anti-inflammatory pills on schedule and one muscle relaxer. It's two types of the 3 pain meds they gave me which on their schedule could have a patient taking 18 pills already.

Cold rider, cold and in some places damp track, a bad line and wet grass in my case equaled a bad result. I had gotten used to the power of the 675 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) last weekend that the SV suddenly felt really underpowered that I was using all of the gearing and throttle of the SV something I don't do first session out. I was lackadaisical in respecting even a low hp bike that I felt much more familiar with and knowing exactly where my lines were. I'm certainly thankful to learn this painful lesson on a track . . .

For what I saw, it will need a new clutch lever and repair the left front fairing. He took most of the hit.

Crashing sucks! That's why I just run off the track instead

I hate hearing stories like this, hope you heal up quickly. Never met you and your lady but I seen y'all out there at the track. Hopefully you will be riding pain-free next season. See y'all out there
