call me a *****, but i love having traction control... everyone makes mistakes. most of the time my bike compensates for my issues...

imo our bike would of stopped that from happening.

/agree - "call me a b**** but I like having a power saw to cut wood in half" do you need a power saw... nope but I'm happy to have it

use the tools available, can someone like rossi or hayden use the slip to their advantage yea sure, but I'm not them and it helps me from gettin f'd up on my path to knee draggin greatness. sure woulda helped this guy

I believe that he was leaning the bike way to much, and with the current set of worn tires on. His body position did not help at all either, it was so bad that it probably worked the suspension even harder than it already had to.

I don't know how these guys have the confidence to go ripping around "trying" to just get there knee's down on these public roads. Only asphalt I trust is the track.

Notice a few other things, his leather top & bottoms seemed to not be zipped together, or maybe they just don't fit him well. The previous corners was a complete and utter failure.

Had he had a bike with traction control it may of been a different story.

Agree with all of it

Maybe it's the popularity of that corner for this photographer to create this amount of footage. But the guy in the original video isn't the only person that has trouble there



I do think theres more to that corner than the camera angle allows us to see.

This guy goes out every weekend to take video and pictures. Just look at his YouTube channel, tons of crashes you could watch for days.

I know. But he prolly picked that corner for a reason. I dont doubt theres a lot of rider error in the crashes. Jist saying there may be more there as well.

That's a crazy freaky corner! Definitely something odd there. It's almost like there's an oil slick in the same spot day after day.

Throttle Control

In my opinion, the rider was not SMOOTH with the throttle that made the bike's suspension unstable + excessive throttle while leaned over + survival reaction when the rear started to slide (he chopped the throttle OFF) = HIGHSIDE.

read Twist of the Wrist II by Keith Code the cornering guruÖ.

A guy on another forum knows that corner and rides it often. He says the corner is a decreasing radius turn. Technical but not overly difficult if you know it's coming (or did a slow ride thru before trying to hammer it)

People who don't get caught offguard by it. And most of the crashes we get to critique are of riders without the experience / skills to handle a surprise like that.
