Well, if you feel that you "just went down" without knowing what happened, maybe you're not concentrating on the task at hand. I had a slow lowside when I first got my bike. New tires on cold, slick pavement was the priblem. I was busy paying attention to the front end and not enough to the back, too much throttle during lean, back spun and slid out before I knew what happened.

If you can't remember about what was going on when the crashes happened, it's possible something is distracting you.

Sounds like you need to
1-stick with noob rides just cause the bike can go fast doesn't mean you should until your ready
2-let someone (experienced) trail you to find out what your doing wrong and correct you
3-do a track day or two, you do learn from those
4-Have the bike checked out, maybe there is something mechanically wrong that your not aware of. (is the frame out of alignment)?
5-check the tire pressure, it only takes a few minutes.
be safe out there
thought falling was part of riding dirt?
Ill follow these maybe they will help minus number 4 frame checking is $$
cant really do number 2 I don't have anyone to follow my lame around

I usually don't try to go fast and be mr. show off cuz I know falling is the dumps

Number 2 is easy. someone can follow you during a ride. Let the ride leader know and I am sure someone will step up. They may even video you so you can see what they are talking about.

I know you said all of the crashes are different, BUT is there at least a pattern? Are you mostly wiping out in Corners? Grabbing a fistful of front brake? Trying to Pop wheelies? I mean if it really is 1 every 4 months there has to be something you're not getting possibly/

When I was 17 I was dumb and thought that I was invincible, I ended up highsiding into a tree at 100+ mph which resulted in two pelvic reconstruction surgeries, 3 months in a hospital bed and 2 months of physical therapy.

ive tried thinking of a common source and not paying enough attention and going to fast on roads new to me seem to fit most of them but today I did neither I was going like 25ish on again a unfamiliar road. guess that was to fast the others did It fine just a real calm pace

Edison failed over 2000 times trying to make a lightbulb. Just saying..

Although I do agree you most likely are doing something wrong. I would take all those tips he gave you. Dont let it discourage you, if you love to ride then have at it. Just learn from your mistakes, you may not get another free pass.

Just like someone above said. Ride with In your abilities. When you have veryy little level skill steer clear of group rides. Don't ride at a level when you feel like your not in control of your motorcycle. Have you taken an msf course ???
