Hmm, guess they never heard of trail braking huh?

I don't think this is something they would teach in a MSF class. The S stands for 'Safety'. :laughing6

I guess you only go to racing schools?

They don't exactly explain "Life on the Edge" to new riders.

LOL, I guess that is when track gives you more instruction than the safety course. I have always been told to lean further over while trail braking(gently) to make the corner instead of straightening up and braking hard to go off the track/street. Matter of fact, what I have learned at the track has saved me in the hill country a few times. Because I thought I was going off the road instead I leaned harder and made the turn. Plus it seems like lowsiding would be better than straightening up and hitting the brakes upright and hitting some hard object anyway.

Why were you going so fast on public roads? If you ride like that regularly and this is your first crash in 8 years... then you're the luckiest SOB ever.

as long as you decrease the amount of braking the further you lean you wont crash unless you have old, worn , or cupped tires. oh and if you dont make the turn and your heading for grass brake on the concrete not the grass unless you have something in front of you like a fence

oh and glad your ok dude. if you need some parts let me know, i also have parts for that bike
