    Yes, that was John, and yes he finished a race with a quickly deflating tire, and a bent rim.

    Yes, wide in 3, hit the beach/ditch, and limped it to 2nd place....

    By the way, it was awesome mixing it up with Duncan...he's a great rider!!

    Front lost all air pressure, rear is holding but bent also...

    Almost lost it about 100 times after that...I went a lap and a half after I hit.

    Actually I couldn't believe going thru tech was so easy...they check brake levers and throttle tube and said you're all set....I was surprised.

    I had a couple wheels fixed by him before one of them looked like your rear wheel and I couldn't tell it was ever damaged when I got it back I thought he sent me a new wheel! He should be able to fix them both.

    come to NJMP this weekend and do a CCS race with us. Tech makes you bring ALL your gear. it's fun trying to balance everything on your bike.

    There must be a Ducati or 848 specific forum out there on the interwebs, right?
