Awesome dude...have fun!

I was actually thinking about going up the same day, but my damn boss is going to be on vacation and we can't both be out of the office at the same time.

She deserves one though, as she very rarely takes any time off at all.

At any rate, enjoy! Shred some puck in the bowl for me!!!!!

Streets of Willow was awesome! Unfortunately, I crash tested my bike, along with my gear Only got 3 sessions out of 7 possible, there were crashes everywhere. My bike isn't too bad, a pretty banged up tank cover, and tail fairings. But only things I have to replace is my left footpeg and a new clip-on for my left handle bar.
My Shoei helmet did its job, I had a high-side and fell head first and cushioned it a bit with my hands, started tumbling. Love my suit (Speed and Strength) it took damage, but just scuffs, MotoGP gloves took up a nice portion of knuckle damage along with my palms. Sidi boots saved my ankle and lost both vent switches haha.
All in all, I'll be back for the track in notime! couldn't get enough while it lasted.

Thanks a lot guys!!! I LOVED the track while it lasted, and this was my FIRST time ever crashing, laying my bike down, and high-siding! Haha :)
I was passing wide on turn 4 (Group C) and I was dragging my knee the whole turn, but unfortunately I totally forgot it's an indication of how low you're leaning. So I passed the guy up, and I accelerated out of the turn way too fast while I was still at the same lean angle. Rear tire lost contact, and I tried to straighten it out, then my front tire moved to the right, well my rear caught on again which threw me over my handle bars.
I think I can say I have some battle scars on my bike and my gear now :)
And as for next season! We're trying to come back within the next 2 months!!!!

No I wasn't. I've only been riding for about 8 months, I'm not too sure how it really functions and if it would really benefit my exp. level. I was out there having fun though :) Would the steering damper help prevent a crash like that? I'd def. buy one before next time, I had no idea that was coming until I was flying in the air.
