I recall thinking I was a little tired before the session, though at the time, I didn't think it was enough to skip the session. Hindsight is 20/20.
    My only highside was T4 at Putnam. All I remember is a brief second of realizing the rear was spinning up. Then I remember seeing candy stripes then sky. I woke back up in the grass wondering were my bike was right before it hit me.

    Glad to hear that you're doing well, Jeff. It was so hot that weekend, I wouldn't rule out tires actually getting greasy from being too hot.

Just a cast on my right arm and taped the two small toes together and prescribed to wear hard soled shoes.

    I also (finally) got the bikes unloaded so I could assess the damage to the R6. At first glance, it's definitely repairable. Time for some upgrades! Pics to follow.

    Thanks to all that helped at the track and reached out since the incident. Overall, all things considered, I'm doing great.
