Why are you mad? What tires were you using when you went down?

Re: First Track Day Crash. Please critique video!

People get mad at you because you constantly are posting on here telling others how to ride (presumably incorrectly) with absolutely zero instruction from a track day school (or anyone but yourself for that matter). You then continue to relate motogp riding to everyday riding when what they are doing on the track should not be emulated on the street. Those guys are on the limit of traction, somewhere you shouldn't even be getting close to on the street, so their riding style is that way for a reason. You're just expelling way, way more energy then you need to riding that way on the street, plus you look ridiculous hanging off with 5 degrees of angle but that's beside the point.

So here's a tip, either take a track day school or let the track guys with experience critique each others riding. You might even learn a thing or two if you just read what they have to say and stop thinking you know it all. A lot of these people on here have a ton of experience and are very informative.

Re: First Track Day Crash. Please critique video!

Track conditions strive to be as perfect as possible. This affords one the ability to ride with less reserve. Street, that ain't the case. Didn't notice that stick or bit of sand at the intersection? Wet roads, road plates, manhole covers, sewer grades, oil slick, cold pavement, icy overpass, craters, dips, road wrinkles, varmints and critters, unpredictable children, pedestrians, rapid lane changer, etc, etc, etc? The number of variables that a track rider must worry about is considerably less. That's what allows for the higher speeds. When it comes to having a little fun on the street, you must be *hyper* opportunistic. Too often I've seen other riders, (and probably myself on rare occasions though I privately chastise myself afterward,) take unnecessary risks, forcing a situation rather than wait for a better opportunity down the road.

Well put. Real rap.

Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!

I love my R6, but...there's no buts...
