1st Track Crash (2nd ever bike crash)

Highsided coming out of turn 6, perfect day and weather, idiotic use of throttle (best I can tell) for no reason at all (probably just hot and fatigued)

You are sooooo good that I somehow must have missed the first 2 so called "verbal ass whippings" - I must be slipping on my game - From 12 to 11 on the 1 to 10 scale of course......

Yep.
Twice.
ACC - N and Gingerman.
ACC - T7 - in rain hit something slick (later found out from Ken it was antifreeze) and gone in an instant - very low speed not even a scratch.

Gman - Dry - T1 - tucked the front.. Really not sure what happened on that one and it's slowed me down quite a bit since. I just don't trust the front like I used to. I think there is a slight dip in T1 and or I hit a seam wrong? I leaned in and right before apex is just washed out... I know I had gone though it quite a bit faster before without issue.. So .. I don't know.. Really kind of bugs you when you can't figure out what you did wrong to learn from your mistake. -- I have a crappy video of it from the rear.
Medium speed - again not a scratch.

My crash was in Moto1 - Raced Moto2 that day as well - All I did was bend my Rear Slider Rod - Took it off, bent it back - BLAMMO - Off and running
