AFM 2014 Round 2 Race Report

This race report actually starts three weeks before this AFM round. Three weeks before this round I took my GSXR 450 to Sonoma raceway to get some much needed practice in.

Unfortunately, I failed to respect the track as I should have and had an impressive slide as I was exiting turn 6. The slide itself was not that exciting but when my bike touched the dirt on the edge of the drag strip she decided to tumble up the hill. That tumble did extensive damage to her. The subframe was destroyed, the fairing stay was destroyed, all of the plastics were destroyed.

After the track day, the first stop was Gerry at GP Frame And Wheel. Gerry was able to put her forks, swing arm and frame back into alignment for me. He was also able to save the front rim but the rear rim was just too far gone. Pretty impressive list for just one crash!
