Are you ok after the wreck?

I hear ya about the messin with your head part.

I was in an accident on oct 22, and since then I've been without a bike. I was hoping to get mine repaired, that's why I waited so log. But that's a log story. But it has kinda messed with my head a little. Like I ask myself if I k ow how to ride or not??

But I think having this accident is going to make me a better rider. It's going to make me be more aware and alert than before. I can't wait to get back on two wheels, but there is still some doubt. But I wanna come back a better rider than before.

It may not have been AMA, I can't remember 100%.

Yeah I'm fine, I rode the bike afterwards. Just mental block that's all.

Yeah, but the best thing to do is get back on it. The sooner you can ride again the easier it will be to overcome the mental block.

Definitely, the best thing to do is to figure out what made you crash. Like I know I crashed from too much trail braking at heavy lean. That way, I know I need to practice on front tire feedback and watch out for it.

Either way, still cool to get to race.

Sh*t good info. I might as well get a cheap 250 already made track bike then huh? I was thinking it'll be good to have the 300 to ride both streets and track. Maybe I'll just get separate bikes for track use and street then.....

I already have a cruiser but can't stay away from sports handling!

Yeah, I'm not sure how they're considering it, really. It may be fine, like I know my 636 can race in 600 classes. Just do your research.
