Similar to the "Official CLSB Crash Club", except to be eligible, these "get-offs" must have taken place on a race track or other controlled environment.

Had a minor Crash last season at Putnam. If you can count it from last year.

Occurred on the last turn of the warm up lap no less. Just ran off instead of dippin her down. Into the grass, hit a bump and the front stuck. I didn't. Probably only 10-15 mph at that point. Minor plastic damage. Was pissed and had no problem pickin up the beast. Man adrenaline is nice at times.

I'm a member unfortunately. Outside of Turn 5 I think it was at Blackhawk.

Made a major mistake I looked off the track, and guess what that is where I went. Lost it once in the grass lowsided.

Me too. Turn 1 at BHF. Too hot, got messed up on the ripples at the far left while braking and ran out of room. Minimal damage to the bike and none to me.

Better the track than the street.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

VTR...um...are we forgetting the two missed turn ones at BHF?
I think there was another one somewhere Im forgetting.

I went in a little too hot and a little too sharp into turn 6 at BHF on 7-6-02. Nice smooth lowside...minimal damage.

This is the off-street CRASH club. And I've never crashed at BHF at all. It was one time that I took an ALTERNATE LINE in turn one. The paved line is faster IMHO. LMAO

And NEVER in my 9years of street riding have I crashed a motorcycle on dry pavement. Both (2) crashes were in the rain.

Does letting the stupid bike roll backwards down a driveway count as a "controlled environment"?

July 6th at BHF... my exhaust can hit the apron and I lowsided off the track. I hate to say it, but the pictures that are burned in my memory are pretty funny.

Had mine last weekend, 8/4.

Road America, NRRS Open Supersport. Lap 3, came down into turn 8 trying to get around Shallcross, grabbed a handful of brake, lever hit my knuckles and I wasn't slowing down enough. Avoided tagging Mike by about 2mm, went off into the gravel trap. Bike stopped, I kept going another 10'. Minimal damage to bike (some scuffs and scrapes) and a sore elbow were the worst of the results of the crash

Turn 1 @ BHF, peg feeler hit the deck, I was shocked by it, wobbled the bike, bike went to edge of track so I stood it up, rode the gravel, rode the grass, tried to stop on grass...bad idea...fell over.

Oh how harrowing!

Oooooh, look at the pretty colors

OKOK Repeat performance. Did a little offroad high side in turn 2 again at Putnam. No good reason. Got spooked by another bike and I went off. Minor skin damage, bent right rear set, and a broken rear master cylinder. Good thing I dont use the rear brake much.

How you found us: My psychic advisor told me about it
 
On-track crash #2 happened for me some time at the end of August or early September at BHF. Rosno school. First session of the day, bike kept running wide and wanting to tuck the front. Consulted Brian Baker, he gave me some suspension settings. Go out next session, bike was better, but not by much. Somewhere around lap 4 or so of the 2nd session, front end tucked in 4, wouldn't recover. Bike came down on my foot and pinned it to the ground. The ground managed to grind away the top of my boot, the top of my sock, and the top of one of my toes Did a good number on the bike too - she's still not back together!

I later realized that I had not checked my tire pressure that morning... the last time it was checked was at RA a few weeks prior. I'd bet a paycheck that my tires were low. Hard lesson learned... I tell ya I'm never riding the bike without checking that again!

Do you actually have to hit the ground to be a member?

I bent dented both rims on a offroadsing excursion at BHF in Sept, but I rode it out.
