Here's the tally for the year kids. The numbers are a little off... [laugh] Somehow I ended up with 377 days in there and I'm too lazy to track down the error. Besides, it's a new year, so who cares. [cheeky]

M.O.B. 2006 CRASH-TICKER
Crash-free on the street for
3.18: 76
3.29: 11
4.22: 24
5.19: 27
6.11: 23
6.27: 16
8.29: 79 SF Spree
9.16: 18
10.21: 35
11.05: 15
11.23: 18
11.30: 7
12.29: 27
12.31: 1 days so far

The stats:

We had 14 crashes total
We had one guy get mowed down by a crazy dude in an SUV and walk away from it. [thumbsup]
We had two guys crash twice
We had one bike get crashed twice in one week, by the same guy who crashed twice this year [laugh]
We had a number of folks new to the sport have minor crashes
We had one veteran to the sport have a minor crash
We had one bike completely wadded by a still unknown rider
We had one major injury-accident :(
We had no fatalities :)

I believe two of these crashes were p.m.'ed to me. I did not post the details at the time and will not do so here. It would be interesting for people to step up and claim their crashes, however. ...maybe link to the thread where they talked about it or use this as an opportunity to finally 'fess up? [cheeky] (It might be cathartic!) It would also be nice to get my ticker a bit more accurate if it's off, so please correct me if you note an error. Note any other interesting stats in your replies if you like.

Happy New Year! Here's to keeping the shiny side up and a safe 2007. [thumbsup]

Unless some other nub crashed twice and bella forgot I did.
Well apparently some of us need to learn the hard way...
Sigh, well here is to a crash free new year!

Don't feel bad, Cynic. This year, I crashed leading a group ride about 1/4 mile from Starbucks and only about 5 minutes after giving the safety lecture. I was riding at about a 4-5 out of 10. Conditions, as it turned out, called for about a 3.

On the track, I got run over by a Buell. And another time during a race, I locked up the front brake while still up and down, and my front just tucked.

Damn, quattro...I think you're gonna steal the "Most Crashinest Mo-fo" award from Spidey this year. [cheeky] Cynic--I'm afraid you need to toss it away a couple times more before you can give quattro a run for his money. (Please don't...) ;D

Track crashes are a completely different ballgame. I'm not going to get into the middle of it since apparently there is some question as to the definition of "crash" among different people. :p

I am going to do my best to not be that guy who crashes all the time. I really can't afford it.
Emotionally or Financially!

Wouldn't the precursor to getting run over by said Buell, be a crash?

Or did you just get torpedoed by the Buell?

The former. And then the latter. It wasn't a particularly good day for me.

That's the best picture evarrrrr... [laugh]

What did I tell you about falling down, Spidey: Stay down or the Buells come for you!

Oh man... well, here's good thoughts out to your latest fallen comrade.

Hope that's the last one for the year.

Well, depending on how long Spidey's off the road... [cheeky]
