Need a new tail.

I went down at the top of the 1/8 mile earlier. I am OK save for some missing skin and a sprained ankle. I slid through the traps at 94 MPH. The bike got chewed up. First thing I need is a tail. Where do I get one?

Cheers,
Jon

I knew someone who crashed well down the track. The front tire was cold, barely touched the track during acceleration and then let loose at the end under braking. Stuff happens...

No skin grafts. Was geared head to toe, a thousand bucks worth destroyed.

Yeah I was at Kennedale. Apparently there is a bump on the left side of the left lane. A couple of old bike drag racers told me to stick to the right lane on a bike (after I wrecked). It hit and the bars started shaking violently and it ejected me. Track tech said "I dunno why they don't fix that".

Hope you're ok. Used to live in FT.Worth. Left there about 32 years ago. How's the weather? Hate the humidity up here!

On my 2nd niner! 2wheels are better than 4
