TWS (Texas World Speedway) High Side

dude that was in front of me got a little high side that shook him off the bike.

GoPro for the win!

Oh and in his title of the video... he was not doing 110 mph...

I had to go back and see that.

Not laughing at rider, I hope he is ok. That looked gnarly, the bike didn't look too bad...

110 probably not....but not too far off. Gary's speedo said something like 110 when he lowsided T12.

That sucks. Seems like he might have been able to hang on but he got bucked off pretty good.

I prefer to lowside in T12, as seen above

I wouldn't call it a tank slapper, if you watch the video in slow-mo....his rear tire steps out, and bucks him off when it gains traction again

Lucky for me, I stayed on my bike when I was in a similar situation at MSRH a few years back....bald n' gimpy, I believe you witnessed it Saved it like a bauce
