Had a small off...

Hey guys, this is a post I hoped I wouldn't ever make.

Had a highside at a trackday at Queensland Raceway on Monday. Simple case of too much throttle too soon out of the last turn onto the straight. To use a Stonerism, my ambition outweighed my talent!

The guys at Champion Ridedays were great, medics got me sorted pretty quick, and apart from being a bit sore I spent the rest of the day hanging around at the track. The guys at QR were great too, let me lock my bike up there and went above and beyond their duty.

That evening the pain kicked in and now I am friggin crippled. Had x-rays late yesterday, and have to have an ultrasound on my shoulder tomorrow. Got some deadly pain killers though!

Bike faired pretty well, a fair bit of cosmetic damage, broke the left bar and front brake master cylinder. Destroyed my new rearsets but I think they saved the cases. Bit of damage to the rear axle too. The next mission is to get it back home and start getting her back together.

Big shout out to Rob (Rob b). He was an awesome help and even offered for me to take his bike out for a session. He pushed my bike around and helped me pack stuff up, and was generally just a good guy to have around after the event. Thanks Mate!

Sorry to hear about the off but sounds like things are about as good as you could get with a highside. Hope X-rays, etc show nothing problematic!

It's sort of like setting the long jump world record without the sand.
Sorry to hear of this. Several of our Aussie brothers have had a spill recently - take care and heal well.

Bummer - rest up, and we can compare stories!

Good to be walking...and keeping a sense of humour about it all!

Get better soon.

It still frightens me to even "think" about taking my MV to the track...
Prolly would take like a bater R1 or R6..
