Glad your ok! I own an 06 and last week I came within inches of downing it on a giant oil slick turning left. Lucky I was taking off from a red light. If it was green and I woulda taken that turn at any kind of speed, I dont think i could have saved it from washing out

#That'sWhyINeverRideStreet Oh please, give me a fucking break. Why the fuck would you turn like that? To me it just makes no sense.

#ATGATTBRO Ok. Really does not matter. I mean, honestly. If you are doing the speeds I do. You're going to die anyways. A full suit will just mostly keep all your body parts together. But you will die. Shit happens.


#takeittothetrack The world is your track. Anyone can die anywhere. Zero proof it is safer on the street Vs. the track. Such bullshit that is spewed over and over.

Yup. Blame the tires and gravel.


Glad you are ok. Seriously. Get her fixed up all pretty and stuff and never take a turn like that on a dirty road.

Glad ur ok bro, but track versus street safety..... Um, the track is much, much safer.....those in the know....know....way safer.

Most racers don't even ride the street, Kurt Roberts didn't even have a street license, too risky! Controlled, closed circuit environment is the best place for us.

When you are at the track;

We sweep the track, clear any debris, oil, use airfence for fixed objects for added safety
We have much more run off than streets, less curbs, no telephone poles, less trees, etc.
We have stand by ALS units (medics)
We have corner workers looking out for riders
We are all going the same direction (most of the time)
We don't have cross overs, lights or stop signs....dare I say no police officers!

At our events, and many others, we have professionals like Jason Farrell, Jason Pridmore, Corey Alexander to assist our riders improve performance and learn without trial by fire, which usually hurts.....sometimes really bad. Don't kid yourself though, stuff can happen at the track as well.... The goal is to mitigate risk.

Again, glad ur ok, but as many other seasoned racers here know, the track is far safer for what we do..... Try it and you will see. Still, high risk business and anything can happen, including death.....

Be cool, ride safe and ride the street with more precaution, wide open throttle, blind turns and late braking sequences are really best suited in the race track environment.

You gotta finish your period before you get all worked up. Sorry you missed the jokes.

I ride street all the time, this won't stop me, and the only thing I blame is me not seeing the gravel.

Seriously, you think I'd blame tire pressure? I don't drive a BMW.

Next time I'll include /sarcasm tags. Rubber side down, man. No hard feelings.
