No doubt. When you do a track day, you're putting yourself in a high risk situation -- nonracers riding their bikes as fast as they dare -- with the knowledge that someone could lose control and nail your bike.

Any good writer knows that "sending the bike and I flying and into a nasty wobble", should read "the bike & me", NOT I!

Most insurance companies only have the "no competition" clause... trackdays aren't competition, no more than riding your bike through a private parking lot

Awww, dammit... That always screws me up! I can't believe someone actually caught that- you win, ummm, nothing, but thanks for pointing that out.

I bought my Ohlins from Wim Kroon just under a year ago and had no problems shipping it to the U.S. The purchasing instructions are the same, so I can't see what the problem would be. I saved over $300 over the cheapest U.S. price....

I can't resist my comment. Sounds like a fun day at the track, and your layman's description of the modifications was very good, and encouraging. But what I can't resist is.. from what I read you were out of shape, way slow, and maybe sideways on the track when the perhaps equally inexperienced R1 pilot rammed you. Maybe you were a contributing factor and not just an innocent victim. Good to hear there were no injuries and maybe not too much damage all around.

By that same logic, when I got broad sided by a car that didn't obey a stop sign, it was also partially my fault for being in the intersection when it was my right of way.



Oh well. Just don't tell my insurance company that.
