This is why I keep it on the street

'cause the track is just too dangerous these days.

A few pics shamelessly stolen and pasted from another site.

Thunderhill @ Willows this past weekend, credit to Nick Weaver for some fine shots of some bad carnage.

The before pics
23AFM R4

And the after
32AFM R4
34AFM R4
171036439 L

Notice that the axle is still intact.
171036481 L

Thankfully the worst damage (physical) was a rider that ended up with a broken ankle
171036380 L

The meatwagon and the cleanup crew.
171036519 L

Remember y'all, keep the rubber side down.

Please note one VERY important detail!

"Thankfully the worst damage (physical) was a rider that ended up with a broken ankle"

If this were on the street or one of the back roads, theres no telling what could have happen.

i'd have to agree...if someone kept that kind of riding on the streets...they'd be road kill.

and the before picture sucks, because the bikes that are in pieces have different numbers.

Yeah I know, it's kinda a joke...haha. But seriously, things get out of hand really fast whether you're out on the track under "controlled" conditions or obeying the laws on the streets. Either way, it can go bad faster than the rider can react to the situation.

very well put.

doesn't matter what kind of riding you do. it's gonna be dangerous either way. it's a risk we knowingly take.

I figured you'd keep it on the streets since a stretched 'Busa won't corner, and turbo lag out of the corners is a downer.:laughing6 :laughing6
HUGE difference between actual racing and trackdays...........good carnage pics though

As many crashes I've seen during racing, I am always amazed how the guys get right back up and have 'minor' injuries. Granted, there is the occasional worst case scenario as well but I'd say that going at and above your limits is safer at the track any day.

Turbo lag? A friend of mine (runs the same bike setup with a different suspension) has run 7's on his Busa. I think I have that lag myth whipped pretty good. But yeah, my bike wouldn't do well at all with 2 over at the track.
