I hit a big nasty patch of oil slowing to stop at a light in town and it scared the shit out of me. I didn't go down but i almost did. I can't even imagine in a turn like that

Yeah and that track is known for not having a lot of run off room before you hit a wall, so I could just imagine how it must feel when you are getting close to hitting a wall.

That's messed up, I don't know how quick this all happened, but the track workers should have red flagged that after the first couple riders went down.

Damn that sucks! Deffinately not expecting that when rideing around on a track. It sounded like atleast one guy got hurt toward the end there.

Have any more details about it?

Yeah that was at Louden and I don't have any other details about the accidents. I have heard a lot of negative things about the safety at Louden and that's why I question going to that track.

Obviously I would be riding within my abilities if I did, but if for some unforeseen reason something occurs that causes me to wreck I know that people have died because of the lack of run off room and I don't want to risk becoming one of those people.
