Hi gang! First I'd like to say THANKS for all the good wishes my, Ryan's, and Jolly's (sorry I don't remember your first name) speedy recovery For once in my life I seem to be at a loss for words right now. Went to get my bike yesterday, got there, started to do quick look-over and thought, "Oh, well, not to bad.......". That is until I noticed that the front fender was hitting the new rad protector I just put on the day before, because there seemed to be about a 1/4" gap between the frame tubes up by the steering head .
I feel like shit, I hurt another rider. I've crashed a bunch of times, but I never hurt anybody else. Worst part is I don't remember a fucking thing from the crash, zip, zero, nada. This sucks, I'll talk to you guy's later.

Well I finally made it home today! THanks for all the comments guys! I hope for a speedy recovery so I can be out there with everyone! I wish the best of luck to the other two guys who went down as well. Man I have crashed a few times in my day (track) but nothing compares to this!! OUCH... I posted a full report in the face plant section.
I can't wait for next time I can actually make it out there!

Quick steering is a good thing. Sounds like the KTM may need a slight "adjustment" Possibly these guys can help out-http://www.gmdcomputrack.com/
