Rough break!Racing my 85 GPz550 at Thunderhill Raceway in 2013, and it threw a rod. The rest is history. Pulled way off course in turn 2 just to be nice, but the workers at Turn 1 couldn’t get there in time. Camera melted, but the memory card obviously survived.

Yes, there is a first place trophy on the melted seat, because I had won the Vintage Race just before this one. When things don’t sound right, pull off track instead of trying to nurse it back to the pits.
At least it makes a good war story though. And pics...
