Heavy-Dee crashes and gets wood

I'll write more later but the short story is this:

1. Sucky morning. Nothing went my way. I've been sooooo busy w/ work and school that I'd forgotten that my leathers were at the leather repair place getting the LP patch sewn on. Of course they are closed on Sunday so I had to rent leathers. Also, I get to the track and realize that I've forgotten my transponder so I had to rent that as well. So far I haven't even gotten on the track and I'm 100 bucks in the hole due to forgetfullness.

2. Old tires + new suspension = lowside. I "slid into home" in turn 13 going at a VERY moderate pace. Wasn't dragging a knee or anything and the front washed out. No damage to me. Minimal damage to the bike. The rented leathers were scuffed. There goes anothe 75 bucks!

3. Race went okay. I got third...out of 3 riders. Father's day...but I'll take it.

Re: Heavy-Dee crashes and gets wood

You're still doing better than I did when I qualified for the regionals of the national AFLA fencing tournament in 1978. I thought they were at MSU. Everybody else thought they were at Wayne State.They weren't giving medals away in the empty parking lot, either.

Re: Heavy-Dee crashes and gets wood

Sorry and congratulations at the same time. Maybe we should start a lowsiders forum here.

At least there's no plaster to talk about. Glad you're alright.

Isn't fencing illegal?

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

No kidding. I've only done that twice. Once was a low-speed baseball slide; the other time I actually highsided and landed in someone's front yard but walked away without a scratch.

Otherwise, tb don't bounce good.
