shit, that tree is damn close. an aquaintance was riding, hit some gravel or something, went flying into a tree, leg caught the tree, body kept going. only has 1 leg now real bummer


this guy in the pics should be at the track though, if he's going to ride like that.

Suckage... I hope the rider was OK

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

Yep....showing off for the camera Maybe that's why with riding with this group for almost 4 years, no one has a picture of me railing thru corners, because in I would end up doing the same thing, pushing it hard to get that "perfect picture" and doing the same as this smuck did

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

From the second pic it looks like he is completely off the throttle which is putting all the weight on that front tire. Also, needed to get his ass of that seat more so he wouldn't have to lean that bike so far over. And of course, GET ON THE TRACK!

Yeah, in that pic you can see sparks so he's already dragging hard parts.
