You need a motard. When you blow a corner, you don't wreck, you just take a shortcut.

Ha, you can hear me pull in the clutch, rev, and spill on the resulting gravel a few seconds later.

You never banked over more than about 15 degrees. I would consider your crash a classic case of a bike that could have easily made the turn, with a rider who's inexperienced at turning brain decided he couldn't. It's also a factor of trying to keep up with the other guys...you clearly wrecked because a jeep came between you and the group, and you were trying to make up time once you finally passed. Factor in 100 degree heat shortly after being stopped, a camera on board to give you that little mental nudge to push it just a little harder, inexperience with really mashing the front brake in panic situations, and cool little stickers even on the inside of the windscreen and you have the perfect recipe for a Sunday ride crash.

Be thankful there was no oncoming traffic or immovable objects in your crash path or your friends might be posting an RIP thread instead.

Ride safe, ride your own ride, and always wear plenty of gear.

Glad you're okay.

Did you stand on the rear brake too? Looks like your end slid to your left side before impact..

Going too fast for that turn and locking up the wheels is what caused that crash. Notice the speedo goes from 36 mph to 0 instantly. That turn is marked at 15 mph

Did the same thing myself, on a left-hander though - on 3090 (i fixated on a crashing rider), then freaked the same way because I thought I was too late into the turn. Had I though about it, I could have leaned it much more to the left and carved the turn (which is why I did a track day; to see how far I can lean over at spead). I'm a lot more comfortable now, but my right shoulder is still screwed up 2 years later.

You could have dug in way deeper, but that's the past now. Hope you heal up quick, and you can repair the damage!

Ride safe, ride your own ride, and always wear plenty of gear.

This happens because of people trying to keep pace with the lead_ in which case the most expierenced riders should ask the group if there are newbies for their riding skills,
and act accordingly, "i believe we are a community" and as i've seen in this forum, we all should take care of each other as much as possible,
if i go on a group ride, i'd like to ride with safe people, even if they can do wheelies all the way to 170mph, I don't wanna get home worried about the guy that went down
or the guy that got pulled over and got a ticket, or went to jail..
