Thought you guys might get a kick out of this

Early apex = death



I was incredibly lucky. I was literally a few feet away from the armco.

I don't know, sure you messed up a bit, but I thought that was a pretty decent save. Rule #1, don't panic. It was hard to tell, but it looks like you didn't.

Very soft. I'm running stock suspension right now. Going to do maybe five more weekends on it, then upgrade to TC Kline S/A 500/700. I might add some sways soon.

Ah so this clearly illustrates why all my instructors have said to go straight (if possible) and not fight it if I drop a couple. Exciting ride. Glad everything was ok.

WOW. That would have scared the crap out of me. Very nice save there. My instructors always tell me, if you go off the track, act like you did it on purpose.
