Re: Crash at Daytona Team Hammer today
Good call. Sometimes you just have let them by and just watch what happens. After a while, you'll get a feel for when someone is riding in a way that they are over their heads and about to crash. That is terrible that it took out an instructor and the student. I hope they were OK.
Just a note, you might need to back off a few more feet when you see an inconsistent rider jamming up too fast behind some other traffic. Those few feet can give you time to make better decisions on how to get by if someone crashes. I like to make sure that I see that a rider is consistent and running appropriate lines before I get very close. Then if the rider is not riding cleanly and predictably, I chose one of the safer places to pass, and I don't sit right behind them. I hope you don't mind my comments, but if we were at that track and you were telling me your story, I might say the same thing.
Great job keeping yourself out of trouble!
