On a side note, people either take a low line or a high line. They don't start a high line then decide half way through to change to a low line. People that are on the high line don't enter turn 1 below the blend line on the ground.

I've been racing and doing track days for a very long time and this same guy almost took me out doing the same thing. I've never seen someone do anything like this before.
Again, I agreee with what tojo said and I saw his point because I was trying to figure out why the other rider was trying to say it wasnt his fault, immediately after tojos comment I agreed with him and thats that. I dont see how its still being argued but w/e floats your boat lol


The only thing I said was even though there was nothing wrong with tankmoneys line (as he mentioned already the smaller bikes take it) he could have taken a higher line, and let me reword that for when I say higher line. Higher line in terms of the banking, starting from the top of the banking going down the straight closer to the wall. And read tm's post he usually takes that like for visibility reasons.

I think ive probably mentioned this 2-3 times at least but I didnt throw the blame on anyone from the beginnin

Totally the fault of the passer!

Tankmonkey was on the correct line and being predictable. Better for slower riders to be on the lower line on the inside.
I don't think Tank could have evaded with the higher speed rider coming from behind and cutting across so fast.
If I was Tank I'd hand that guy the bill for repairs. If he's a honest man than he'll admit his fault and stupidity and pay the damages.

100% the passing rider's fault. He just blitzed into the side of Scott. I have no reason to be diplomatic at all about this. The guy is delusional in his riding line choices in the face of a rider that is occupying space in it and holding his 'different' line. He needs to back up and start schooling all over again. Frankly, I would put a shock collar on him and teach him old school style. I won't even do that to my dog, but my dog has some brains and decent judgment.

I do not recall his name. I was a little when he told me and chose to forget it.

He was on a GSXR 1000 with factory blue and white tank, and naked, unpainted bodywork (much like TM's 600). Had some stickers from other track orgs, and accessory manufacturers on it.

Read that post you just quoted, what does that very first line say? Please quote it again and bold that first statement.

Umayr, learn to listen and not argue so much. Not every discussion has to end with you giving the last word. Fwiw, all the people you're arguing with, all have more experience than you.

Settle down young grasshopper.

I think im just being trolled at this point. So anyway, what I thought about this was the rider passing TM screwed up. TM didnt do anything wrong IMO, merely suggested maybe he could be higher on the banking to have a better view of riders coming up like that but regardless I never thought it was TM'S fault from whatever bad writing I may have done or whatever people dont really know how to read it I cant make it much clearer. Have fun

It always made me nervous to run the low line exactly for what happened in the video. Some people fly past me at the last second and scares the out of me. Could have just been level 1 guys not familiar with passing there though..

The problem I have with that statement was no matter TM's line the other rider was behind him. Maybe he just needs a back up camera in his helmet?

Oooo okay. Gotcha, so I did mess up alright. My fault.

I implied a statement in the wrong way I dont think scott should have had to do something different to avoid the crash, the rider behind him screwed up.. I just mentioned the different line thing but didnt mean it in a way that he should have to do that to avoid someone smashing into him..

Make more sense ?
