lost my "cherry"
Well, it finally happened...the inevitable...went down at the track. I'm a little banged up, but nothing bad. I was coming in pretty hot into a hard left, when I lost the front end and low-sided. Banged my left elbow on the asphalt pretty good, but nothing broken. Had I not run up on a much slower rider, I carve through like I had done several dozen times already that day. Late day tire wear and the fact that the tires were seeing their second track day (and about a thousand street miles!) also contributed! Hey...I'm frugal!! I was probably getting a bit tired...I should have maintained more distance to the rider in front of me. One thing I must say....Thank God for those frame sliders! They got ground down and bent...but they did the job! I didn't really like the sound of my bike sliding across all that pavement...think I'll try to keep from doing that again...........yea....right!!
