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.

I am surprised I did not break my collar bone I hit both shoulders pretty hard when I quit sliding and started tumbling I have already had 5 broken collar bones. How much you want for the stock clipon?

Hey hangman let me know if 30 bucks shipped sounds fair.
How long did it take to heal/get back on the bike from the collar bone?
I'm hopping to get back on the bike in 2 more weeks :thumbsup:

All but one of the times I broke it I was pretty much back to normal after about 5 weeks the one time it wasn't it took about 3 months but it was broke in 2 places and they thought about doing surgery but it finally healed.

30 sounds fair

No I did not have frame sliders do not know if they would have helped since it sorta went in nose first. Will probally put some on when I get the race body on it though
