Clearly it's a Suzuki thing and the suspension is to blame.

(sarcasm for those who don't get it)

On a serious note, the new suzi is gorgeous, but I think I like last year's design better than the new one.

I really like the new look, but I absolutely hate how big the stupid pipe is! Especially the Yosh on Peicks 18. Looks like someone strapped a damn diesel stack onto the bike.

I'm back at the hotel, sore, and I can't turn my neck left. I was asking Coy Gibbs if the team massage therapist was on duty today. laughing I'm seriously a bit thankful, I was in a full stoppie from a prior mistake with a b-line off the track when I saw the swamp, I couldn't grab anymore front brake without faceplanting, so I gave up and tried to get away from the bike. When the front hit the mud I was stepping of but it launched me another 20 feet and I landed full scorpion on my head. I got up, turned around and I was seriously over 20 feet from my bike. I missed the swamp because I flew so far. Spencer had to get my bike out with a tractor and afterwards he made me feel a bit better by saying Nick Gaines had ended up in the same spot about a month prior and someone else shortly before him too. We had three other media guys crash today, so it was a rough go. laughing

So were you the first person to crash a 2018 production suzuki 450 in the US? In the world?

At least you did it right man.

That's pretty gnarly!! Glad you're ok, minus the neck being so sore. Hope you enjoy the rest of the trip and can't wait to see what you say about the new bike!

Glad it wasn't serious. Get the neck checked out anyway, as a precautionary.
