That or too low of a pressure? What PSI were you running. The track pretty much stayed green all day. It never really got the chance to heat up because of the constant wind.

Glad your okay.

Man that sure went down easy, as Tiller said you need to be trail braking to the apex. The front end unloaded some how, front rebound too low/soft, causing the suspension to bounce up. Or by adding even a little throttle you transferred weight to the rear wheel unloading the front wheel.

Another scenario, is power out to your tire warmers, always put your hand on the rim to feel if there is enough heat being put into the tire right before you go out. You never can tell when a breaker trips and your warmers are not working.

That's a beautiful bike by the way, I'll have one in my arsenal some day, love the twins.

I thought about the rebound dampening as well. I had my suspension set up earlier in the day. first he opened everything up for one session so the sag could be set correctly. I'll dial up a little more rebound dampening next TD. I think it was the lethal combo of old tires, tired body (leading to using too much lean angle), and maybe a little suspension.

Glad you're ok. If you haven't done any front suspension work, you may have a good excuse now.
