Posts I've Made
Yesterday, 08:50 PMSorry to hear about friend, I saw it the news yesterday. I stopped riding on the road for fun after a serious accident a couple of years ago. I still ride to work, but riding up around the roads has lost its appeal (snake pass used to be one of my favourite roads).
If you want to ride on the road then I suggest getting as much safety gear and training as possible. I do the occasional track day now instead to get my fix.
09 March 2014 - 06:41 PMIt's scary watching it how it just happens... Hope it doesn't just happen to me, eek :(
You don't ride your track bike in 6th gear do you lol?
no i was barely getting it into 4th yesterday :S
tbh I might switch back to a more road based tyre until I get quicker. The bike came with some Super Corsa SC2's, which I thought would be ok
09 March 2014 - 06:08 PMAw maaaan. Glad you're ok though! Two low sides, why do they happen? The Moto GP riders have a 62 degree lean angle and they don't do it lol. I don't get what makes the bike not come up again? Sorry for silly question.
Probably cold tyres (especially the left edge), also leaning it too far whilst accelerating, they are a race compound so a bit sensitive. I was actually trying to take it easy in the video and warm the tyres up.
The other (first) low side was more embarrassing, running too hot into a corner, unsettled it downshifting, and must have decided I wouldn't make it so went into the run off area (and then fell over as I used the front brake)
I am struggling to get used to the bike if I'm honest, it's harder to rev match that my road bike.
