When you don't steer enough for the turn, you crash. He gave up on turning and got on the brakes instead

I also have a ST3. At almost 200pounds I dont have any issues... I have also tracked this bike. Just as fun. I have never experienced any issues with the front end coming out like that.

I agree with Rider error.

You can see the Tach go from 63 to 54...

I dont think the suspension causes that.

When in doubt, gas it out! Clearly he target fixated on the little bit of trash and freaked.

Only practice can teach you to look through the riders in front of you.

Flashing brake lights are not near the distrction that a frickin' yellow, five times too large t-shirt flapping on the back of a Prov-Nov is.

I doubt he even saw that piece of paper. He gave up long before that

yeah except on the track, you know it's just a flapping shirt, on the street you have to wonder why dude is flashing his brakes.

Tail light is flashing the entire time so you can't blame on that. I doubt he jumped in on the ride when the video starts

He definitely slowed down while mid turn. I'm thinking he saw the guy in front slow down as well and mentally made the rider make an error. Still, a little more lean and gas and he could have easily made it around. At least on the track, you end up in grass.

That was more violent than the camera made it look. 60 mph into a guardrail is no joke. How did he come out of that wreck?

Absolutelly the bike's fault. The last time I rode a bike with springs too soft for my large self (which is ALL bikes until I change the springs) I crashed JUST like that..EVERY time.






Oh wait...that's not right...Nevermind.
