Nevada Track Day Ooops

I went and did it.

Track day, wonderful weather, everything was going great…
Coming out of a left high speed corner. Slower rider goes way wide. I slip inside. Nail the throttle. Textbook pass. He decides that he is in the wrong line and cuts to the left all of a sudden. Smack! Right into my handlebar. I lose that one. Next thing I know I’m the ground racing my own bike down the straightaway. My own bike wins that one. I loose twice in one section, I wonder if that’s a record?

One week in the hospital (3 days in a trauma unit). 5 broken ribs, punctured & collapsed lung, broken collar bone, broken Scapula.

I have no “post” pictures yet. Still screwed up pretty good. Bike looks great considering what happened. Champs no-cut sliders worked like a charm. I only lost a tad of plastic and of course the case cover. My only wish is that I had the champs mounted to me instead of the bike. Thanks Champ91 !!!

This is the same day about ½ hour prior to the boom.

If he went wide exiting a left hander and changed direction he would have cut right- no?

A newbie's bonehead move took me out last June during a cool down lap.

Heal up brother!

I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.
