Dissecting the crash, according to Ty Howard.

Yorke comes out of the bus stop into the back straight and passes Bluepine (camera man) who is hugging the curving, from the outside.

34587c4352a8d55194ab8052ce9aae1e zpsf90b749a

Yorke rendezvous the seam while at Perfect Triple Evils "Increased Lean Angle, Open Throttle, Slippery Spot". At this point, camera's bike was at 90 mph, so Yorke would have been at least 100 mph.

1d851a75e6f1443e701bcbe1adceddb4 zps88657f4c

Hence, Sayonara Traction!

5e73d6bd70f3d6feed5697f54e2b3639 zps3453661d

As stated by Ty, rather than loosesing the inside bar and bringing the bike upright, the right arm stays firm and keeps the lean, while the bike is ready to gain traction and throw the human specie off the bike.

Oops, the rear has lifted!

1f98706c69597bf22f9a171b6b862e00 zps381cd68b

Then, The Takeoff!!

a3c01e90921ca963b24b0c03bae76f4f zpse8dee20f

Time for weightlesses, thousands of thoughts in split second, and half second that feels like eternity!

441a97f85fcc38d13abfc3e1ba9eb00f zpsdccdb2a6

Wtf! Blake rushing onto Yorke's path and and leaving it at the mercy of the brake

441a97f85fcc38d13abfc3e1ba9eb00f zpsdccdb2a6

At this point, Blake is thinking, should i run over my fellow comrade and save the bike, or get spanked by Dave (1FC) for up the bike he just painted.

0e80cb428147b1d4d86e0a4cb2763514 zps3a4be8ab

Decision made. Save the bro!

34365319c0ae9a9ae2e121a405dde843 zps424adab8

In a flash, Blake steers the bike to the left hoping not to run over Yorke.

533aab4eb06bdf27749566cd247b0d39 zpsa073b5c3

Blake missing Yorke for an inch!

5928f292c1d8b1cd898e4390f7f6aae7 zpscb712be6

Blake en route to kiss the grass.

9b8a5ad3e7066b18750f20a9ca3da5b2 zpsbb12d516

Then rolling.

2cf3600bfc51a44ee1e0f18e4be8de78 zps68eadfe6

And rolling.

baa1d9a07702cc71865b1e08485fc280 zpsbeea8d3c

And keeps rolling, and thinking "Man, this is Cushy!". Trust me, his own words!

baa1d9a07702cc71865b1e08485fc280 zpsbeea8d3c

Epic, Dave passing by and saying Fuuuck, my paint job!!

Nice breakdown. Its always easier to find out what went wrong and what could've prevented it in hindsight. Good stuff to think about while out next time

Actually, Blake thought of saving me, because he knew i was on the right side. He didnt have time to see how far i was. And of course, the fixation issue comes across the equation as well.

I agreed with Bluepine, Blake was trying to avoid both Bluepine and Yorke, and he made the selfless decision.....steer his bike is to the grass while doing close to 140 miles.

So in that sweeper its a bad idea to open throttle and lean? Was it because his tires? and to basically save himself he should have loosen up his right arm to let the bike come up straight? and since he didnt the bike reacted badly?

read the words under the pictures..among them is talk about the seam and the fact that he was wide and the seam would have been a non issue

A tire can only give a total of 100% traction. That could be 100% acceleration, or 100% turning, or some mix of both.

If you're straight up & down (ie, not asking the rear tire to do any work turning), then 100% of the tire's traction is available for accelerating.

If you're leaned over and asking the tire to turn at 100% of its capacity, then there's no extra traction available for accelerating.

If you're leaned over and cornering hard, and you want to accelerate, you'll need to start standing the bike up as you roll on the throttle. Otherwise, you risk overloading the rear tire (eg, 85% cornering + 25% accelerating = 110%... stepping out the back tire)

Okay this made me understand it better, thanks. So you can accelerate still in a lean but if youre in max lean then you better calm your down with the throttle
