Good news and bad news....

rode A group and was fine....could almost keep up...I think the difference was race slicks vs my street tires...I was definitely holding my own...everyone was cheering a 66 year old guy in A group....

Bad news....went down and broke collar bone and maybe a rib...

Bike is rashed...insurance claim....fixable

Hit some dirt coming in to the pits too hot and when the bike went down hit the bars and tank with my body...

Will definitely be riding A group in the future....

Hope you recover soon man, and it's a good thing insurance is taking care of it. Hope you get back to riding soon.

The good news is great but the bad news sucks. Hate to hear it OG. Heal up fast man. Congrats on successfully navigating A group. Now if we can get you in and out of the pits...

Heal up quick youngster, good to see you representing the wiser age bracket with the A listers. You'll be back showing them whippersnappers your rear tire in no time.
