ragdoll -

Crap, dude! Down at 100+, still able to tell us about it - that's worth a lot. And major endorsements for any gear that held up for that long a scrape.

I'm local to you. Send me a PM, and let me know what all I can bring by, from chicken soup to DVDs, and I can courier whatever bike parts outside of work hours. Just say the word.

turn 2

will greatly appreciate spare parts. all damage to left side. dont know all damage, bike is at evad101's house(dave). I know I need, radiator, clipon, shift liknage, engine cover... anyone have clean or rashed plastics?

I scubbed a lot of speed with the brakes, dont know actual speed. based on the gear I was in, came up to it at 145ish. but then lots of braking, my ass slowed me down a lot, too hit the wall much slower but came up to it on my ass/side. ha

hand surgery tomoorow? will see. most injury is to left hand. Most impact was in my leathers.

gear worn. dainese leathers, veloce gloves, sidi boots, shoei x-11,

will be sore tomorrow for sure. getting harder to walk as day goes. bruising is turning up substantially

I have pics but the photosite is down

went from 90words per minute clean to 9 wpm sloppy. this blows.

i miss using the shift key

You made the triple digit launch club and already blogging about it?! Sorry you are enduring that! Get more expert opinions on the hand procedure (Seahawk's sports doc?) and get well soon!

Sorry to hear about your accident but glad you are walking and talking about it given the extreme speed. Hope you and the bike heal up quickly.

Damn rag, don't tell me, Evad got pissed that you were passing him on the outside (Lorenzo style) and he T-bone your skinny a$$?

Go to the Rogue site or shoot LDH an e-mail, I am sure you'll find a few guys there who still have spare parts for the wallory Pig

Let me know if I can help you with any other aftermarket part that you need... I'll send some KY along with it

I mistakenly thought track riding was as safe as a video game with big quarters.
Wasn't the motivation moving to WA chasing fit women not guys?
