It was bad, I thought it was totalled. I lowsided at about 90mph from what I can gather. The runs before I was doing about 80-85 and that next session I was pushing hard.

Hard to tell in the pics with my bad eyes and all. But it looks like the bike had frame sliders on it? That blue round puck on the side with the black piece on it. If so, looks like it did it's job on that slide and saved your frame and engine. If that isn't a slider, then you got really lucky your frame didn't grind away to nothing. :) Glad to see you're still alright and your bike is still going strong.

Defiantly a slider. It should have been fine but the long grass I think threw the bike around a bit.

On the track as long as 3 things are left in good shape at the end of the crash you're good. The rider, frame, engine. Everything else in one piece is just gravy. Glad to see you're still tracking that bike.

It's a bit hard on that pic to see depth, how far are those sliders sticking out and what brand are they?

Those are some heavy damage lowsides. When my bike has gone down its usually just a big of fairing damage, clipon/barend, slider and foot peg.
