I'm still around... just winterized the R6. I did go to two track days at Brainerd (one with ZARS, one with Road Closed).

Re: Minnesota!!

I got to do a few track days at Road America and BIR. But after a deer head-butted me off of my Triumph Daytona 675R in july I had to cancel a bunch more.
Still can't ride a sport bike. Been a tough rehab for my broken bones...

Re: Minnesota!!

Yikes I had rotator cuff surgery last December... hasn't been a fun recovery. My first track day back in June wasn't exactly my best. My shoulder was a bit weak, so I had to ride pretty conservatively, but it lifted my spirits after a long winter and recovery. I still don't have 100% range of motion back, but it was close and strong enough to ride harder at BIR in September.

Heal up soon! Hope to see you at BIR or RA in the spring.

Re: Minnesota!!

Ouch to you to.
The deer's head broke my collar bone and 3 ribs, and bruised my lung.
The collar bone was lined up so the surgeon said lets let it heal and we'll x-ray in 3 weeks. Well once the damaged muscles started healing themselves that shoved the bones apart.
So they say ok...surgery next week. So that was 4 weeks of bad healing.
So that and being in a sling for 6+ weeks really shut down my muscles.
Therapy has helped (19 sessions so far) but still a long way to go to get my full range of motion back.
