I'm sure that duct tape will come in handy now.

play hard, pay hard.

Hate to knock a brother when he's down, but those be the facts.

Hope your feeling better.

Ah, the bike did real well. Looks like cosmetics only.

Bodily injuries look ok too. How long for the collar bone to heal up?

Get well!

Yeah, but I don't even remember day 1 and day 2 and the next two weeks (especially the first week) were pretty f'n hazy too. :)

I do remember someone in the ER asking me "Do you remember what movie you saw?" and I said, "Don't you dare fucking tell me it was that Biker Boyz shit." and they laughed and showed me the ticket that was in my pocket. :D

Some duct tape and a large hammer will fix that right up... Not sure what to tell you about the bike though. :nanana

:crackup I have some fresh cast shots to post. Might be a couple of days though because I'm looking for a silver marker to write "428" on it. :laughing

That looks like a hobbitt's foot. Sorry about your crash, black frames suck for reasons like this.
I thought it was supposed to explode on impact. Aren't all K5 frames supposed to do that? :laughing

Yep:laughing What else is amazing is that you still have all the warning stickers on there.

Just wait until that band-aid sticker I ordered for the tank gets here. :D

Pilot Powers are fine for track days when the temps are above 60. They were working just fine, but I think that I took them to their limit. Hindsight says that I could've probably been much smoother and made them stick, but I'm not so sure.

Up until the crash, they were steady as a rock and very predictable. I like them immensely and feel they are a great all around tire. But I'm not convinced that they no longer suit my riding style or the speeds that I'm now approaching.

I'm going to switch to Pilot Race and get a set of warmers.
