Looks good. After a violent crash like that how do you check Crucial Area's and Componants for cracks and things of concern?

hahah, that's a good question. In my crash, it was pretty obvious the areas that took most of the impact. The Swingarm, gas tank, and front fairing stay. Because these areas took the impact and crumpled basically, I was fairly confident that the frame and other structural areas were pretty intact.

As for the frame, I just did a close inspection on it. Anywhere I saw that there was a scratch or mark was an area I paid close attention too.

Then I rode it. Went out around the neighborhood and just kinda went thru the motions. Checking the travel on the front forks, getting up to like 40 mph and putting it in neutral, removing hands from the bars and coasting. Trying to see if it wanted to track to the left or right, etc.

I'm sure that something is a little bent somewhere??? but who knows. I am confident that its safe to ride.

that's who I'm riding with too, but its the south Course.

H_Ryder, I have Sharkskinz on it and its an 03. For a track bike having your suspension set up first is probably top priority.

I'll comment more later, kinda busy.
