This is in response to the 600rr and ZX10R creashes. Turn looks off camber to me - dropping to the outside as it turns in. This lowers traction availability and turning ability. Cure? Go Slower. All inputs in this situation have much less forgiveness. Smoothness is key, but that is only possible with the proper (read slow) speed.

Off camber turns can bite you, but so can any number of road conditions. If you ride at the limit of your capability you will undoubtably find it, and you don't get to control when and where that happens.

Here's a thought - find your limits, if you must, on the track where the environment is more controlled and favorable to a less negative outcome and don't push your limits on the street where stupid can hurt a whole lot more.
