I went to the Cycle Options trackday at Putnam Park on the 24th, it was pretty cool, there wasn't alot of control riders, that was a little different. The passing rules were very leaniant (sp) the only real rule was no passing on the inside for the "slow" group. I was having some real fun turning some pretty good laps, until the 2nd session after lunch, I was going into turn 9 and couldn't get it to hook up good (tires might have been cold still), I realized I wasn't going to make the curve, so I stood it up, started to break hard and ran it into the grass, I let off the breaks thought I was doing ok, when the bike spit me off. I am no sure why, I landed on my back, and hit my head pretty hard (saw stars for a sec.) I laid there for a few seconds did my little self check everything felt fine. I stood up and afelt my collarbone give some, I said to myself, "self, you just broke your collarbone". I went to the hospital got some x-rays, sure enough it is broke in 3 places. So here I am sitting here hitting the Lortab, with a "brace" on typing all this with one hand. I really would like to thank the cornerworkers, EMT's, riders and everyone else that helped me, everyone was a real help. My bike is pretty good from what I can tell, will have to replace the front fairing and headlights forsure, but I will have my dealership give it a look over and make sure, I have all winter to get that done(I have my F4 I can still ride on the road if need be). Other then that everything went good.

There was only 5 control riders yesterday and only four today...I saw that it was going to rain so I went shifter kart racing....and brought home a 8.00,3rd place trophy

Up until this spring cycle options had zero control riders ever.

good luck on your collar bone.

Which group were you in? I saw a few 600rrs, guess one of them was you. Except for the first 2 laps of the 1st session, I couldn't really tell there were any control riders on Sat. they really let us roll.

Good job on the 3rd place in the carts.

I was on the 03 gsxr 1000 with just the upper on it.

I was in the street and middle group amostly.

We just watch out for people doing stupid stuff that will get them or someone else hurt...pretty much ride at your own pace.

We had the green shirts on

I knew ya'll were out there, just wasn't a huge presents, I liked it. Most of the green shirts were pitted right next to me, I think I remember your bike. I was the guy they brought back to my pitts in the AMBO.
