1199r 90 MPH Crash Calabogie

Well - wasnt my fault but here is the story- Running my second day in expert class - was on turn 15 right on Apex `90MPH area. nothing but the grass to the right of me. I see a white bike - im down slidding look up, dude looks behind him keeps riding.

The dent in the tank is from my arm impacting the tank when he hit me, fell back when i went down, helmet hit dragged my back thighs and shoulders. Minor bruised back and blood vessel on my hip. No injuries to speak of. My guardian angles where there for sure.

The guy never went to find me in the paddock - i came and found him. He was more afraid of getting his ass kicked than to come see how bad i was hurt. He didn't speak English. I had a translator explain how disappointed in his inability to act like a human. I teetered on beating the ever living life out of the guy all day, or hammering his truck, bikes and body to my liking. As an adult i let it be, but let him know what a pos he was for not. If i even startle someone i find them and apologize , never mind T-bone them at such high speeds.

A guy and i were going back and forth saw it all, he went around him on the outside then dove down and tried to beat me to the apex, there was no room and instead of staying on the grass and crashing himself he decided to save himself and wreck me. Karma will get him.

As far as the bike - tank - hopefully can be pulled back to shape that is ridable - front fairing stay, minor pieces on the rear sets, new throttle tube and set - clip on - bar ends- front fairing stay - front fort outer is dented - helmet is gone - leathers need repairs - boots need repairs - gloves need repairs.

Shit! Glad you're ok, and a very depressing story. I can't even imagine your frustration level.

When I was racing back in the day (early 80s) I got run into on the warmup lap! I was fortunate that we were not on the gas at all, trundling along about 45 mph. I got knocked of the track and down a short hill, but fortunately did not go down.

Definitely a pisser, sorry to see what happened to you. It’s easy to say “that’s racing”. But an apology was definitely in order.

Glad you came away ok.
I just don’t get those type of people at a trackday.
Takes a lot of self restraint not to beat on them.
Unfortunately if you did, you’d be the one not able to go back to the track.

Not to be morbid, but you got some good crash data there. I see you have front axle sliders and case savers....anything else that helped stave off any damage?

The rear sets and the body deff helpwd take the hit. The OEM rear tail smashed to pieces. Dont put frame sluders on race bikes. They tend to cartwheel once they reach the grass
