Definately not the best BHF weekend, way too hot, too many people crashing out especially given how small our grid sizes were.
Worst crashes were like Ken said, that girl Linda that crashed in T1 and got airlifted on her first outing on the track (she was an Intro rider apparently but allowed to ride in a later session) Not cool at all to see a chopper come in, but at least she seemed OK, I heard Garth talking to her on his phone and she is staying overnite at the hospital but should be released by tommorow.
And Ronhix's crash was pretty bad too... Hopefully you're OK Ron, sucks that you earned a trip to the hospital crashing out in T6, but from the sound of it you are gonna be one angry and sore but 100% in tact mofo
I crashed too in the same corner Ron did at the last session Saturday. Didn't feel right the whole day, rear end was sliding a lot, and that time around I was pushing hard because it started feeling better after I messed with suspension a bit. I guess the bike didn't feel as good as I did and the rear finally just gave up right at the apex of the first part of T6 and I'm just glad the fucker didn't catch again and highside me.
I'm sore as hell, but no real damage to myself. Bike wasn't too bad, fairing bracket broke, fairings are shit now, dented tank, broke the master brake cylinder, bent clipons, ground down footpegs, just the usual damage. I'm such a shitty mechanic that it took me like 6 hours today (in the heat) to make it rideable again when I bet anyone else coulda done it in 2
Thanks to CR Tony for all the help and loaning me your brake cylinder.
But damn it was still fun, I finally hit a 1:23 the lap before I crashed, and I was certain I was on my way to a 1:22 until T6 bit me. One of the CR's (Chris I think) told me that was pretty good considering how gutless he thought my old SRAD was down the straights
I need to get a real shock instead of running that stock shock that isn't even valved to my weight
Great meeting all the CLSB'ers at the track... better luck next time, hopefully it won't be so goddamn hot next outing
