FYI for everyone on future rides. If you're having an issue with your bike, it's better to pull over for what would be a maximum of 5 minutes to inspect it, than to crash and hold up riders that stay with you for what will be at least 30 minutes.

I have done it many a times.. I don't condone it..
His bike steered quick to the shoulder as soon as he turned.. I remember saying " oh ...no..no...no.." And then a cloud of dust..

The worst part is not knowing what to expect when you approach the rider... U kinda want to see motion .. But, then you want to keep him still too.. I am glad I remembered the road we were on..

I'm stuck offshore for work right now, and can't upload the vid on this connection.

As soon as I get home I will upload it. I may have sent it to Ernesto (the guy on the red/black ZX6R) if so maybe he can upload it sooner.

Man, the way you were rolling and that bike was flipping I thought you were hurt bad. From my angle it looked like the bike landed on you. I was scared at what I was going to see when I stopped. I'm glad you came out of it alright. That busa was doing cartwheels.

You were definitely out of it when I came up, you were trying to stand up, then rolled over and your eyes were closed, guys around you said you weren't responding. Worse wreck I've ever seen in person for sure.

Yeah I was scared as well , the bike was all in the air flipping and it looked to have landed on him, I was concerned of any internal damage/bleeding. I'm glad he's ok and the bike can be fixed or replaced , luckily he made it out ok.

Something here doesn't add up. At the 2:14 mark when you guys pass the rider at the shoulder, you see the bike get swerved right and left, and see the tire get squirrely, and the rider even looks down. The tire must have been deflated, something was wrong with the bike. Have they found out what?

The rider you saw on the right shoulder was jimrad, he pulled off to the side to check and make sure everybody took off ok and with no problems. The bike did swerve a little bit and I think that's what he was looking back and down at when he went off the road. Later on once he got home and resting and was asked why he took his eyes off the road he said he thought his back tire might of been flat/ low. Just those few seconds he took his eyes off the road is all it took to end his day early

If you listen in the video you can hear me trying to explain what all was going on and how it happened. Of course I was all out of it right when it happened because he was riding right in front of me and in the blink of an eye he's off the road and flying through the air and the bikes flipping out of control and I honestly didn't know what to expect when I ran up to him lying on the ground. Scary moment because no one likes to see someone go down and especially when you just finished talking to him and cracking jokes right before we took off ��
