I thought I had it all figured out...how I crashed that is...then I saw where it happened. Now I'm really confused.
Album of crash pictures
I must have done one of three things. There was a 3/4 mile straight before the corner. I just have really wound it up and then...
...as you can see by the skid, and a lot of it has worn away in the last 4 weeks, I must have had the rear wheel lock up because...
1-I panicked and locked up the brake.
2-Something happened in the motor and the rear wheel stopped rolling.
3-The front brake didn't work and I tried to bring it together with just the rear.
The distance from the top of the hill to the start of the skid is about 1/4 mile. Why would I wait so long to brake? Was I going way too fast? Did I brain freeze/target fixate? It didn't happen while cornering so I can get rid of the whole "high-side theory" or "loss of traction". I haven't looked at the motor yet so who knows if it is okay. The hose from the mastercylinder to the reservoir is broken from the crash so I don't know if the brakes work.
Where was my brain/concentration at that moment?
At least where I crashed was sort of smooth and sloped down-hill. I landed 150 feet or so from the edge of the road. The gixxer 200 feet and today the battery I found 50 feet further yet. There usually would be a barbed wire fence in a corner like that or some dairy cows looking right at you. I was sooooo lucky that the corner was clsoe to perfect...just put an air-fence there next time.
