I know i have Been MIA for almost 2 months.. Work has been kicking my ass.. 6 days a week..I got a chance to go out and ride last Friday. was up on the snake pushing my self all day to learn my lines and getting better body positioning. I Was follwing a fellow forum member through his lines and getting my self accustom to the canyon, had about 3 hours of practice and started to get cocky. I came in to hot on a down hill right hand sweeping apex, and scraped my pegs and the rear end just came out from underneath me. bike went across the lanes with me right behind it.. slid about 50ft and came to a stop. Frame sliders saved the bike but not without about 300 dollars worth of damage. and my suit has some tears and my new boots got all scraped up :rant

all in all the gear literally saved my ass, besides some bruises to my thighs and my ego. I got right back up and made some passes and decided to call it a day..still kinda spooked from my experience, but im hoping ill shake it off and get right back out there.

and for you guys out there that know me... my bike literally has NO chicken strips!!

my inbox was emptied so if anyone has to get ahold of me, please feel free.

hope everyone is good and well.. ill be on here as much as possible.

:love

Corey

Stock rearsets...I think i was going down no matter what.. all i remember is my pegs scraping and snapping up and my foot hitting the ground...then i was on my side going for a slide.
