    Ouch! Pity about the bike. Glad to hear you're OK, though.

    so no medical personal on the track to check you out?

    Wow, that is pretty terrible. I once dropped a 2 stroke scooter going 50km on a city street in downtown Toronto so I can't imagine what it would be like going twice that speed riding something weighing more than twice as much. How are you healing up a few weeks later?

    Great post, Mark - so sorry about the crash. Best wishes to you for healing! Good on you for already starting repair and planning on going back out.

    That's too bad, Mark. My dad is a long-time rider and I've heard about his many crashes. They're never fun, but at least you're doing better and got away without any serious injuries. Hopefully you'll have the Yamaha running soon!

    Get well soon. I remember the last time I dumped a bike, ouch. One of the reasons it's been 25 years since I rode.

    Yes that seems a bit weird.

    Heal quickly Mark, the bike is just 'stuff''.

  • Thanks for the well wishes/condolences! There was an ambulance on site and they gave me the initial exam and made sure to inspect the helmet for any marks. Fortunately, the brain bucket never touched the ground.

    Heal fast Mr Takahashi!

    Thanks for being transparent enough to show your crash video. The positive report on the truck while in your condition is meaningful, too, as it applies to a real-world scenario.
    Get well soon!

    Splinting your fingers with mini wrenches and electrical tape then waiting till you got home to get checked out was bad a$$.

    The ER nurse said I was a cross between Evel Kneivel and McGyver. That is perhaps the highest compliment I've ever received. She was also quite attractive, as were pretty much the entire staff at Cedars-Sinai. I may become a hypochondriac just to hang out there.
