Who do you race with? I bet we have some friends in common. Have you ridden at any Canadian tracks?Stormfish, we have something in common!

I just do my little chickenshit novice level TDs because every time I start feeling confident, I crash again. Thursday was my first TD of this season. My last TD last year resulted in a crash. D'oh! According to my bf, I bounce well. :|
My first crash was on my warm-up lap at Cayuga. I'd already run a set of BT016's for far too long, and they'd been heat cycled too much. I ran them at Calabogie for 2 days already and they were toast. Lowsided on a hairpin on cold, hard tires, on cold asphalt. My first ever down in 5 years riding. The only thing that hurt was my hip, which I landed on. Dented in my shoulder plate on my suit, rashed it and my boots up, but felt fine otherwise.Unfortunately, I haven't made it up to Canada. I mostly stay local to me here at a couple tracks, ocassionally I'll travel as far as 13 hours for a couple nicer tracks I like.
I have my race Lic. through CCS, but I don't race. I just do trackdays.(I'm about a mid-pack in advanced group now, but it took a LOT of trackdays to get there)
Nothing wrong with novice at all, we all had to start there!
What kind of crashes are you having? Just run offs?
(Lol @ Bounce well) it's amazing how well these suits do for us. I had a 100+ mph highside and all I got was my bell rung and a broken hand.
