Bad day...

Went off a jump with my front tire in one rut and the back in another and swapped big time to where I was almost fully sideways. When I landed the rear swapped twice before finally throwing me off. Got some great whiplash and scrapped my back, nothing big. However where I crashed was a blind spot, so no one on the other side could see me, so I rushed to the top of the landing and waved my arms to warn everyone. I got one guy to start waving for me and ran back to my bike to push it off the track. Except one idiot didn't slow down and took me out when I was picking my bike up. His rear tire somehow hit my left leg and threw me back on the ground. I swore my leg was broken. I managed to get up and push my bike off the track using just my right leg before collapsing on the ground in pain. After deciding that it wasn't broken I rode back to the truck to relax for awhile and walk it off. I went back to the track about forty-five minutes later (riding in pain after four aspirin) only to wreck again on the second lap. At that point I figured that I should just call it a day and come back next week. Who else has had a bad day? I know this probably won't sound like much to a lot of you, but I'm just curious to hear about other people’s bad days at the track or riding in general.

that sucks, i wouldnt have gone back out.

Sounds like a bad one. On those kind of days, you pack it up early and go home. The Moto Gods are warning you to take the rest of the day off.

Lets see, I am now on bad day 125...I guess that covers every day of winter where we cant ride because of the snow. Maybe next week things will start warming up, its been a LONG, LONG winter!

That's exactly how I felt.

      Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Star battles Through All-New Format Hell’s Gate to Finish Second
      February 11, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Graham Jarvis has earned a strong second place at the 2018 Hell’s Gate extreme enduro. With an all-new format for this year, concluding in a 20-minute sprint race, the event posed a fresh challenge for the five-time winner.
      For the first time ever, the event kicked off with a Prologue race on the Friday night. Designed to set the starting order for Saturday’s race, the Prologue was an endurocross style event held close to the hosting Il Ciocco Hotel. Although it provided a great spectacle for the fans, the race results were eventually scrapped due to issues with the course.
      Saturday’s heat race went well for Jarvis. An expert at managing his pace, the Brit did exactly what he had to do over the five-laps, finishing fourth aboard his Husqvarna FE 250 in the cold conditions of the Tuscan hills. The position gave him a good start for the night race, which saw riders set off at 3.30pm for a tough three-hour multi-lap event.
      At the conclusion of the night race, the top-10 riders were given a 15-minute break before contesting the new 20-minute endurocross in the arena area of the venue. In freezing conditions, the riders fought bar-to-bar in front of the record-crowd of spectators to decide the overall winner. With the final results calculated on the sum of the previous legs, Jarvis was announced as runner-up, just a few minutes behind eventual winner Mario Roman.
      Graham Jarvis: “I really enjoyed the racing today, I always do here at Hell’s Gate. It’s been a tough couple of days and I’m still getting used to riding the 4-stroke, but the bike has been absolutely faultless over the entire weekend. It has been pretty close between the top-four all day and it’s all come down to the final 20-minute race off. It would have been nice to take my sixth win at the event, but I’m happy with second.”

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.
