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
I think ur right i was a lil bit nervous being wet and all but we were going real slow an the others did just fine. If i knew rhe turn i dont think it would have happened. Should have went even slower and got a better look at the turn. Or better yet just have went when it was dry and learned the road better and of course going slow

If I still had a street bike I would be more then willing to help you. Try and avoid group rides. Find a buddy that is Willng to help you and work with him. Group rides make you feel like you have to push to keep up. Its counter productive when trying to learn. Good luck to you man.

this right here. I don't know what caused your crash this morning, but I can only speculate....either front brake midturn (even worse when wet), too much throttle exiting (even worse when wet), or too much corner speed and running wide. I rode through the same turn 15 seconds prior. I wasn't hauling (I think your speed estimation is off too, I was doing 20 at best through that turn), but I was focusing on remaining smooth when leaning over some and I didn't have any traction issues all day. I also checked my tire pressure before leaving the house this morning.

I personally feel like track days help immensely, but not until you get the basics down.

Getting someone to "follow you" and coach you on the street could be hazardous to your health and well being (the street isn't the place to be coached)....just ride your ride, go slow as if needed, screw everyone else.

It sounds like you need to work on your awareness. Keep your eyes up, keep them scanning, and don't fixate. Also, don't react. With your eyes working right, you should be able to anticipate what you will likely need to be doing down the road. Make a plan and smoothly execute it. Once you've got the mental game sorted out you should be much more comfortable.

+1. I learned to train my mind to ignore yet be aware of things. Look through the turns, relax your arms, and point your elbow twards the ground. Accidents can happen at any time though. Head up, and eyes up.

I didnt touch the brakes or throttle i know they can upset things mid turn, just a small swerve to not hit a truck as i cut the corner a lil short

I know how to sell things im a car dealers son book value isnt always agood way to judge the market much better to look at ur local market place and yes 6k is high but still would be the cheapest 675 ive seen. And as i said best to start high ppl arnt. Aways that bright. And for some reason are willing to pay more if its from a car lot. Also nada thinks a gsxr 600 of the same yr is worth more no it aint

^^^ BUT... I see a lot more gsxr 600 out on the streets than the 675. I had one, it's a nice bike but really nothing special. I had a ninja zx6rr at the same time I had my 675 and my ninja ran circles around it. Just sayin...
