I came out ok, bike slammed me down onto my right shoulder pretty hard so my right collar bone was sore for about a month and couldn't put much weight on that arm.

Honestly I was almost more pissed about the helmet haha. I bought that helmet two days before I crashed. Since its a hard to find limited edition it was pretty pricy, luckily I found another one…so now I have 2 of ~250 released in the US hahaha.

Crashing the bike sucked but **** happens on the track so I can't whine about it too much. What really sucked was the 16 months it took to fix it!

Nice CBR! I've got one as well, 2009 CBR600RR.

Still stock for now, except for EBC HH pads because the stock pads were terrible. Hotbodies exhaust and rear fender delete will be on order soon enough.

Well, CBR is sold. Sad to see her go! On the bright side, I picked up a brand new Yamaha FZ-09. 850cc triple with an absolute ton of torque (~105 hp ~65 tq).

I've already purchased an exhaust and fuel controller for it, so hopefully I'll have it all installed by Friday!

I put 250 miles on it already and I'm completely in love.
