When I got the insurance I made sure my policy covered the track, and they will cover non-timed events only. I guess I'm about to find out.

Good luck. I hope you had that noted on your policy when you called and have it documented.

Happened in 14 on Saturday. I had this asshat on a liter dragging me all day. I would make a clean pass just to have him drag me in the straights. I passed him no less than 12 times that day.

On the last set he started in on the second lap, and I was not having any of it.

I got up to him in turn 4, and followed to turn 6 with a clean beautiful pass.
He blew by me in the 6-8 bump I followed him through 9 passed him on the inside in 10. Then I had him through 11,12,13, but the ass passed me again to 14.

By now I'm F-ing pissed and no way am I going to let him beat me to S/F!

I out-brake the hell out of him into 14 and get on the throttle to stomp him through 14/15 double apex trying to get a good hell of a running start. I just knew if I could get to S/F before him I wouldn't see him for the rest of the day.

I had a great line, but I was in second gear trying to get good speed through 15. Just as I was about to pick her up the tire started to go.

I held on to the throttle and started to lift the bike while keeping low, but it was too late.

I fell one foot to the ground, and she went for a tumble.

To make matters worse, the battery died on my camera in turn 5 that lap....

ouch... one of the guys I did a track day earlier this year crashed at the same turn... he was blistering fast down the straight, caught everyone off guard, he just had an awesome jump on the 14/15 turn... one time he gunned it a little too early trying to get WOT eariler and pretty much the same thing happened to him... totalled his street triple...

his bike 1/2 way through the day :(

Looks good man! I have a spare of one of those bolts somewhere, just finding out where is the hard part
