It may not look like it but on a scale of 1-10 on the butt pucker factor, that was about a 7.

I'll give a little context here...

So there was this water bottle just sitting on the track, right on the straight as you left the bus stop. I see it and think to myself, "someone should really pick up or move that water bottle". Next lap comes around and it's still there and I'm thinking to myself, "dude you should just kick it onto the dirt the next time you come around". So the next time I come around I aim for the water bottle and try to kick it. Next thing I know, I'm aimed for the dirt/construction area between the drag strip and the front straight. Kept my body as loose as possible, stood up on my pegs, pulled in the clutch, and didn't dare use my front brake. Where you see me in Jared's video is after I had gone over the paved section and it kinda bucked me out of my seat.

I think I went off track because I didn't realize that the water bottle was actually getting pushed towards the left as people rode by. So by the time I actually went to kick it, it kinda put me on a trajectory towards the dirt (instead of continuing down the straight).

Oh, and I think I totally missed the water bottle.

I thought you were going down for sure. Nice job keeping it up.

I didn't see the water bottle the next time around, so I think you got it!

You can see his green instructor vest, while he is off the track, and his feet are in the air behind him. Awesome.

So yesterday I was helping out a little bit with registration. Guy comes up and we start talking. He says, "I remember you from the Aprilia forums". I say, "oh yeah, I remember you too. Do you still have your Aprilia?" He says no (moved onto a Ducati) but then goes on to mention that the last time he was at the track was when I highsided in the pits.

Shit happens and I will never live that down.

And I think I may have been going about 5 mph...

Oh you were doing 5 mph.
That explains a highside in the pits, by one of the track day instructors perfectly.
My bad.
