Re: TOTALLED 07' Gixxer 1000
There's a reason everyone says it's a bad idea to start riding on fast bikes. Until you master turning (confidently), it takes a lot of saddle-time to develop the judgement required to manage the much higher speeds that comes with 150+hp.
There's no reason you should have gone down there, except for what I just stated above. This was your last accident? Not likely, until you overcome your lack of experience, skill and judgement.
Not to bust your balls.... Glad you're OK. Get a smaller bike and learn to ride it.
I can just imagine it...
Whats that? You are just as likely to wreck on a 250, as you are on a big SS bike? It's all in the wrist, so long as you respect the bike?
You won't wreck like that on a 250, I'm sure...
I'm amazed by the overtaking, looks like some kind of orange Ninja was overtaking in front, right when S. Quid came blasting by...how badly that could have ended at those speeds, like that vid a couple of months back where a guy clipped a trailer at serious speed.
The corner leading up to the crash is interesting. In my mind, you didn't even "finish" the first corner before cutting the lines over for the next one.
I wonder how OP's jimmies are...
