Cold morning, cold tires. I thought I was taking it easy on the out lap, the track thought otherwise, haha. Total rookie mistake, but hey, it was a learning experience and my first crash on a track.
Snapped the clip-on; broke the cowl and tail; cracked all the farings on the left; tore off the footpeg; and snapped the cowl bracket. All the woodcraft parts saved all the important pieces. Thanks @woodcrafttechnologies
Gonna pick me up some rearsets, lol
I also learned that the track day community is awesome. I was ready to call it a day and the guys next to me excitedly suggested I fix it and gave me some tips to mentally recover. Jumped around the paddock and was able to find some kawi clipons, retrofitted a buddy's passenger peg to my rearset, borrowed a couple tools, got some help from the OGs, literally duct taped and zip tied all the farings together enough to pass tech and got out for the rest of the day. It's crazy that you can just slap things together and get back out.
Followed some advice I got and took it slow for a lap and slowly pushed lap by lap until I wasn't timid anymore. Ended up having a great day and made some new track buddies.
Anyone have '13 oem farings for sale? Red/white preferably, lol.
