Re: Post your crashed bike pictures!

Ok i see what your saying, in a strait line condition where 100% of traction can be giving to the brakes, i can see where the rear brakes wont make a difference. Its when your turning and say 20% of your maximum traction is devoted to G's and you go to stop, and you give your front brake that 100% power like u say vs using both brakes, 120% traction needed=locked front wheel=high side. I've seen it happen. Parking lot practice would have helped me in my accident but the main problem was timing, i was just not looking at the road at all for the second the guy was laying on his brake. call it luck, my bad luck lol.

Anyone else who has pics post em up... unlike what some people here think, accidents happen, and hopefully sharing your experiences and the consequences of the accident with others may help other accidents be avoided n i don't mind being an example if it helps someone else.

Damn squid. A properly hydrated rider won't get heatstroke even in full leathers. Idiot. I'd rather sweat than bleed.

People do it all the time, including myself. If you are moving (riding) it's not bad. If you are just hanging around, I agree, it's really hot. I have to say no sleeves makes NO sense unless you figure you don't really need your arms. Buy a textile mesh jacket, at least you have some protection for your elbows & arms.

Re: Post your crashed bike pictures!

a properly designed jacket actually is COOLER than just a Tshirt .

Same concept as a farmer wearing long sleeves.

But that is not near as cool .


This thread is slap full of fail

A locked front wheel while turning would make a lowside.

The rear wheel does very little to nothing for slowing the bike down if you are using the front to its full potential. Period. the rear CAN help with chassis stability if you are talented enough to use it and not lock it up while using the front to its full potential.

The front can be used DAMN hard at some DAMN steep lean angles

Notice the angle of the belly pan to the ground, and the fender to the nose...

Re: Post your crashed bike pictures!

Damn your on the brakes in that picture??? Are your running race slicks their? how much to they help in maximum traction compared to street tires? I run Dunlop Q2's i cant imagine how grippy an all out race slick could be.

I did the parking lot thing with my back brakes, learning when they will lock up. I sure do wish my bike had ABS, for a daily bike, so not have to worry about a wheel locking up in traffic, or a slick cool mountain road would be glorious to say the least

X2 on textile jacket, i been riding with one since day one, 4 years ago. Funny thing is when i crashed i was not wearing my jacket, just a T-shirt and i got ZERO road rash tell me how that makes sense? not even on my T-shirt not a stain smudge or tear just a scrape on my helmet, and a broken collar bone, and my shoe ripped in half somehow

Re: Post your crashed bike pictures!

Shoes are usually one of tghe first things to go, and boney areas are first to get ground on.

You were lucky.

Yes I am on the brakes. Hard. That is why the fender is as close as it is and the bike is as forward pitched as it is.. Yes that is a slick front, but really a DOT race front will do the same, and even a good hybrid tire like your q2 can brake that deep... carefully.

Could I do that on the street, with a tire that is only heated to street temps? Nope. But you can brake pretty damn far still. Key is smoothness and feel. Takes a lot of experience and know how.

Re: Post your crashed bike pictures!

that is amazing, great pic too. braking i found to be the hardest thing to master. im smooth on throttle, and normally get on it a bit quicker than most i ride with, but its the braking thats always tricky im always worried the front tire will give out and bikes dont have crutches to lean on like a car does when that happens. I hope to get to the track next year, i have dreams about it lol

The subdivision was also going 5 mph, in the opposite direction.
