PSA for the accident prone

All those days sweating and suffering with my head-oven on paid off today. I literally face planted when my front tire slid out on the steep rock at the top of 7 at RR tonight. I've been over that rock a hundred times, but was going extra slow today because it was wet :lol: . The gel coat over the fiberglass face guard chipped, and my bell was rung for awhile like after any crash, but that was it. At least some parts of my face/teeth would be broken if not for the full face helmet.

Glad to know. I've been thinking about a full face for a few months now

Glad you are ok!

Most of us just adjust our riding style to be more timid :)
