Is everything in your bike in working order?

Is the suspension setup?

PSI?

Frame Straight ?


So much can come into play.

Well there you go, lay off the throttle, the bikes speed is always going to be equal to the amount of twist on your wrist. Also like others have said, Don't ride beyond your skill limits-- When riding a bike you need to pay attention ALL THE TIME, and roads that are unfamiliar, listen to the posted speed signs for corners. Step back and assess everything before you climb on your bike, if you're not 100% Focused, crashes can and will happen.

have u read the posts its my 3rd bike and I did take the mfs.
it would just be my second but I got 955i as I didn't think id get the 675 from the auction.
the 955 turn out to be poo and I got lucky and actually got the 675.
first bike was a ninja 650. I do have some dirt background but it was so long ago it doesn't really matter

Maybe your crappy attitude is the reason you cant learn from your mistakes homie. If you are so desperate that you resort to a forum to learn how to ride you think you would of checked your attitude at the door. Most people here sre trying to help. With your terrible streak I suggest you take msf AGAIN before you hurt yourself or someone else. Please don't come to the track if you csnt even keep it up through a 25mph bend in the road. The track is for experienced riders that want to improve their skill level beyond the basics. Good luck to you my friend!!! My mistake for not reading all of your posts that already answered my questions. When you ask questions try and find some use for peoples responses.

I would bet that your crashes are not really that different from each other, you are doing something in common each time to cause the crash. you can do the same things at low speed as you do at high speed...try to remember each crash and what you did just before and during it, something is a constant.
are all of the crashes on the same bike, or did you have crashes on your previous two bikes as well?
try getting a smaller bike and spending more time in a parking lot...no one crashes as much as you have an lives long.

Personally (I was behind you on the ride today) I think you goosed it and had the bike come out from under you. Granted the roads were wet and conditions weren't ideal, but there was at least 2 riders that proceeded thru the turn prior to you. It was towards the end of the turn I want to say 60-70% thru the turn and ya just hit the ground. Dude that was behind you was way too close. Didnt allow an adequate buffer zone to react, but thats another story.

Ya just need some seat time. Get up, brush it off, and hop back on it!

Just a question .. why would a track day with no outside distractions not help this rider? An instructor following and giving feedback could not hurt at this point? Plus if he did go down there is onsite ambulance if he got hurt.

Lvl 1 is for noobs ... its not a race day its for learning. MSF course a second time around .. I guess the ADV rider MSF course could not hurt as any instruction is a good instruction.

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.
being the one that watched you go down today this might have been a factor. it kinda looked like you were focused on some smaller aspect of the corner and then when your focus changed to the rest of the corner and realized you weren't where you were supposed to be you corrected a bit too hard for the conditions of the road... from experience you have to use gentle reactions and corrections in wet/slick conditions. but maybe if you would have had the whole picture when you entered the corner you probably wouldn't have had to correct in the first place...
on the same note I think I was over focused on you in the corner because I saw it all way to clearly and maybe it would have turned out differently for me too

Like you said bro instruction is instruction. At this point he could benefit from anything. To me it looks like he really needs to work on the basics. Even level one isn't the basics. Like obed said. Get a buddy in a parking with a bunch of cones and go over the basics. Track days aren't going to teach you how to ride a motorcycle. They teach you advsanced tecnique. Trust me I'm an advocste of track days but that doesn't mean everyone is ready to do one. Just my .02
