Home track indeed..............I also think it has something to do with the track layout and run off areas. Now if we are counting run offs.........that's another story all together.

All this is why I am afraid to take mine to the track, if I go down it's not plastics that get toasted it's the whole bike, but I think it'd be entirely too much fun, soon as I get leather lowers I'm thinking it's on!

MSRH - Ran off today and couldn't keep the bike upstraight. Bike is not that bad and I ain't either.

BTW, Thanks a lot Tony and Sunny for the help fixing the brake reservoir.

ECR - 1 small dump after an off road adventure, the run off there is wicked
OHR - 1 stupidity! after the school house don't know what corner you call it, last turn before the front strait. I was already down the front straight in my mind, but then tucked the front... just dumb, especially when you consider I was getting my CMRA license that day! See avitar!
TWS (Texas World Speedway) - 3 off road adventures and 1 knee plant from chopping the throttle in the carousel Was my first time on the track (don't know how I saved it just dumb luck) but no crashes

Agreed some tracks are more prone to crashing then others. I don't think I will ever ride oakhill from all the negatives I have heard about it. MSRH is reletatively safe so is Harris Hill. TWS (Texas World Speedway) is just plain EVIL!!!
