Crashed @ School

Sat. Race School @ Willow Springs Motorcycle Club. Riding Kawi 636. Turning low 1:30s during practice sessions. WOT turn eight. Went wide into the marbles @ the edge of the track, and tucked the front. Injuries include torn ligaments and burns to my forearm and finger tips. Good equipment saved me considering I was travelling @ 150 MPH. Not sure if bike is a total. Would have finished in the top of novice middleweight race today.

I clearly failed to coordinate the speed with body position, steering and throttle inputs. Sounds silly but, the faster I get, the less time I have. Still learning...

WSMC #644

Crashing sucks. Heal up and also hope the ride survived this ordeal.

W.F.O.ing with style will bring life back into focus

Wow, glad to see you came out of a Turn 8 incident with only those injuries. But unfortunately, as im sure you know, bikes generally dont survive turns 8 and 9 too well in crashes. Seen a fair share splt in half.

Wow! Turn 8 is a bad place to go off! Very lucky indeed...
The bikes usually end up way out in the desert!
