04 bites the dust at Little Talladega

Well the first trackday of the year for me did not go very well lost the front at about 65mph figured out that the front will lose traction once you get to about 60 degree lean angle.

That sucks. Hopefully the damage isn't to bad.

Talladega GP isn't exactly known for it's traction anyway.

Wrenching is fun until your wrench uncovers things you wish weren't there.
