Lol was it previously posted here?

My apologies I don't frequent the site. If someone else posted it it came off my Facebook I guess.

that sux you got taken out from such a stupid crash... Looked like he was aiming for that patch of gravel..

Hope your bike wasn't messed up too bad.

Those decreasing radius left turns headed west are just there to eat sportbikes. Be careful on the sisters guys. It's an easy place to loose a lot more than an ankle.

I'm guilty of running wide on my old Hayabusa there in 2004. Ended up on the gravel on the outside of a tight downhill right turn headed east near Leakey. If there had been a car there, I would have hit it.

I had a rider behind me I wasn't about to slam on the brakes while cornering, I applied the brakes before the accident and went away from the accident to the left. It was not possible to predict that his bike would rebound into the road like that. It could have just as easily stayed to the right.

Anyhow I had about a one second reaction time from the moment he hit the rail and before my bike collides with his.

A human beings normal reaction time is around .5 seconds...

As he sped up on the straight a gap was formed between is that was just fine, however, the sharp corner ahead caused heavy breaking where gaps diminish quickly.

It's easy to dissect a video of a crash after it happens, but it rarely amounts to even a fraction of good analysis with moot suggestions and critiques being the normal result.

Believe it or not accidents happen. We'd all love to believe rider skill can protect us from all forms of harm but at the end of the day all riders know it's a mix of skill, experience, and luck.

Anyone looking to criticize is surely guilty of being "too close" to cars, trucks, motorcycles, or what have you probably every time they ride.

The reason though that it is ok during those times is because there is no accident. Yet if there is, then clearly they did something wrong.

It is just as possible that I could have given him too much distance and not seen him and his wrecked bike laying around the blind corner and much the same thing would have happened still.

Why ask why I didn't apply the front brake harder when you don't know how hard I pressed it? How many times have you been in the same situation to have made the "better decision?"

Not that it would have made any difference, but with ABS you can safely apply all the force you're able to the brakes unless you're leaned over.

I would have went down the exact same way, or very similar. No two ways about it.

If any of you seriously think you could have avoided that well....
