    update: back and neck are fine. The stiffness was probably just the result of 3000 miles of travel the day before, and another 3.5 hours of driving that day, plus a shitload of stress.

    The hand is already vastly improved. Still bugs me a bit when I clench my fist but its mostly back to normal so I'm hopeful it will be fine in the next day or two.

    Still rippin pissed about the whole thing but not much I can do about it except try to get my head in the game for june. One thing is for DAMN sure, I need to get some better footpegs between now and then. A lot of my lost focus in my second session was my total and complete lack of grip in the wet. Thank god I put those stompgrips on and was able to dig my knee in or I would have gone down a whole bunch of times when my foot flew off the peg mid turn. And yes I realize I should be gripping with my knee anyway but tank grips are a new thing to me so I'm still adjusting to using my legs more and my feet less.

    Shit happens, heal up, fix the bike and get back on that horse. Everybody does something they think is dumb and that they end up laughing about down the line, at least you'll have a funny story to tell one day

    Actually the crash didn't bother me all that much except that it happened during the warm up session. The second session out I don't recall ever really thinking about the crash except coming out of 2 where I tried to stay tight to avoid that pavement transition. It was all the other crap running through my head that broke my focus. I was so distracted that after I decided to get off the track I ran a complete lap before I realized I had forgotten to get off the track.

    Ian, you went out in the rain on slicks! That takes balls... it's unfortunate what happened though. Everyone was having problems with grip in T2...

    By the way, nice to finally meet you in person. Glad we were able to get the Snap-On thing settled

    Could have been worse...like pulling out on the follow the leader run in red group and dropping bike in turn 3 due to me ignoring the fact that i had a brand new, cold ass tire...
