I'm really not that good but I really do push hard and it's only a matter of time I guess. Best just hope it's not a bad one...

I'm glad you're (relatively) ok

Honestly I had no intentions of crashing on Monday.

Glad nobody was behind you on the outside. Just curious, what tires were you on?

How in the world did you figure that out from the video? I'm guessing you actually were there and saw him afterward or have already talked to Lowcel. Otherwise you're some kind of clairvoyant....

From the looks of it, I'd say he also has a swollen knee, sore shoulder and sore ribs.

P.S. Hope you get better soon man! good luck with the recovery and don't try to rush it.

I'm going to guess he's had the same wreck before, and knows that when you flip head-over on a highside and hit your feet, that's just what happens.

Never ride faster than you can stop

Ack, sorry to hear about this bud and I hope that you heal quickly. Broken bones suck but at least the heal time is pretty short.

As for the crash itself, it looks as if you were still giving it bar input to complete the turn when you got on the gas.

People have a few thoughts on it. There is a dip in that spot and it's possible the ass end got light as I accelerated. It's possible the rear tired just slid some. One CR says he thought I hit oil. Your thought is also possible.

I'm not disagreeing with any opinion. I think that the tire got loose while I was accelerating and then caught traction. How that happened I don't know for sure.

A buddy of mine went down on those a couple of years ago and totalled out his 675. He swore he would never run them again. He was following me and I got it on my rear camera. He lost the front though. The SuperBike race tires are awesome though. That's what I won my first race on.
