    Why? I scuffed up some dust and dirt once in NJ... You tore up pavement and sent your bike through the mud, your ratio is worse than mine

    No, I didn't. You saw a couple facebook photos and some comments and act like you were there and saw everything first hand. I "tore up" exactly zero pavement and fell over after nearly coming to a complete stop from running wide into the grass/mud. Don't talk shit about things you know nothing about Actin' real hard for someone who hasn't even been to the track yet this year. At least I didn't blame my crashes on everyone else.

    christ, relax... You are easier to get defensive than I am... Just breakin your balls, not claiming to have witnessed anything.

    And I was talkin about your z @ thompson incident in reference to the pavement.


    I thought I was your friend

    Oh, yeah. That did happen. Sorry

    I don't mind getting shit about crashing. It's happened, it's going to happen some more and I'll probably never stop doing it (on the track at least, I could go without ever crashing on the street again, it sucks). Just pisses me off when people start pretending like they've never wadded their shit and act like my crashes were so spectacular and off-the-charts 'noobful'. Not that you were doing that, per se...

    Don't get complacent about crashing on the track.......crashing is crashing no matter where it happens, and one is no better than the other.
