went down at turn 1 at NJMP Lighting. Good 100+ mph and everything did its job. I ended up with a mild concussion, brusing and at this point possible ligament issues but we'll see once i can get an MIR on my shoulder.

already ordered a new slider puck, woodcraft right engine cover and liked up with KNL to shorty my cf can up under the frame and tucked away like Ryan's R1. had a set of vortex rearsets waiting in the garage so the stockers are gone too lol.

yeh i low-sided. i over cooked the straight and lost concentration, braked too late and tried to let the front tire scrub some speed as i leaned in for turn 1, washed out from under me.

i was wide-eyed during the whole thing but blacked out in the abulance for a few seconds, most likely ebcause i got up a lil quick and all

Wow, 100+ in turn 1, do you ride with the Race/Advanced group or just forgot to use the brake? It's been awhile since I rode Lightning, hope to go this spring. Good luck with the recovery and buying some new gear, that helmet looks like a good display piece to tell tale of your accident.

Funny you mention that. When I dropped his bike off at his house last week, there were two things I mentioned....

1) Change your front brake lines for the SS

2) Keep the stock rearsets on. Just. In. Case.


Lou, glad you had fun, your protective gear did it's job, and didn't suffer any more serious injuries.

I didn't know they called the ambalamps. damn man, must have been a rough one. get a gopro. better yet, buy my helmut cam

edit: gotta say I'm amazed at how well gear works. just a little sore shoulder after sliding on the ground at 100mph? technology is amazing

oh i hit the 3rd marker fine, issue was I was thinking about the rider that didnt give me a clean pass forcing me to stay inside and out of the race line that had me lose concentration. i was hittig turn 1 hard all day. only holding the binders from 3 to 1 marker then carrying my speed up and over the hill into turn 3. in the inside line, that wasn't possible....clearly lol.

neither, all i know is that i was at around 10-11k in 4th before i hit the binders at marker 3. so i figure i scrubbed down speed. i was hitting turn one fast all day, it really sets u up for turn 3 when i smackit down to 3rd and redine it before getting into the turn.

haha i listened! ss lines were on with new fluid.

i actually think my pads crapped out on me too. i was still getting the shakes when i went hard on them. i ordered a set of vesrah's along with my replacement parts for the bike to see if that solves it.
