lowsided on the weekend

i had back to back trackdays on sunday and monday this past weekend. i had signed up for intermediate but got bumped up into advanced at lunch time on the sunday.

2nd session in advanced, i tucked the front end in a tight right hander. landed on my shoulder and hit my helmet off my forearm. both the bike and myself stayed on the pavement, i've got some new holes in my jacket and marks on my pants but not too bad. the bike slid really nice, the champs slider and vortex footpeg are both a little smaller now but they did their job. i bent my brake lever and pedal and scuffed the belly pan and that was it. the Akra, upper and tail never touched. so after unbending the pedal, and replacing the lever she was back in racing shape and i was out in the next session. only missed about 10 laps in total. the monday was fantastic, a few get-offs but nothing major. the ambulance stayed put all day.

my body is pretty angry with me now, but it was a great weekend. i ran all day monday in advanced and got into a good groove. im working on this whole "braking" thing, and cayuga is a pretty technical track so theres a lot of hard braking and my arms are like jello! shoulder is still buggin me a bit, cant really lift it past horizontal but its getting better.

My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.

Iím all for gun control, I just define it a little differently. If you can put 2 rounds into the same hole from 25 meters, thatís gun control!
