LOL! 2! But I've done about a dozen total and haven't crashed since, just ran off a few times What did I learn? From my crash, nothing. I think I was on bad tires. What did I learn from running off in two particular incidents?? LOOK THROUGH YOUR TURNS!!!

I went down for the first time yesterday on my 11th track day.

I did 6 track days on my R1 which is my street bike. Then I bought my track bike and crashed on the 5th track day ridden on that one.

No I think I did pretty good today. It was my 5th trackday and I haven't crashed at any of them (knock on wood obviously). I had a runoff at TWS (Texas World Speedway) my 2nd day but been pretty solid since then.

I was just thinkin about a friend that crashed 2 times in the last 3 TD's, plus I always see people crash out in novice with zero-two trackdays under their belt. Just curious.

Smooth riding is your friend.

Crashed on my first. You know what they say, if you haven't crashed you are not pushing it.

I laid it down today.

Or perhaps, if your not about to crash, your not pushing it hard enough

That's a pretty impressive noobie run!

I think so far on motohouston the best run I've seen without a crash was from a thread nutmegchoi posted at the end of last season. I think she said it was her 26th or so trackday and she posted a nice series of pics someone snapped of her tumbling through the dirt.

edit: just used the search function and she was at 20 years and 32 trackdays without a crash!!! http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=64064

and a few after that, the most recent one resulting in you having to ride at MSR-H in a really pretty butterfly helmet!!!
