Older video of guy dragging his elbow…it is very contrived and almost caused him to crash.
Man! I’m sure he’s an awesome rider and he was flying through that turn! But, like you said a while back this just isn’t the place to do that kinda riding. That dude would be fast at Buttonwillow.
You need to be a smart rider as well as fast. Adjust to the conditions. He might have gotten away with that sloppy corner correcting on a hot day. But when the tarmac is cool along with the air temps, grip is minimized. Smooth is fast…
So was it too much lean? Or the corner correction?
@Garo A combination of both. He made too many corrections mid corner upsetting the bikes suspension and he was not hanging off enough to keep bike more upright. His front tire gave him three warnings by oversteering into the turn, he ignored all signs of losing the front.
If you watch his right fingers, you’ll see he is trail braking while at full lean. My guess is that he gave it just enough brake to overwhelm the available traction and the front simply tucked in. At least is was a low side.
if you look at it closely in the slow mow – you can see him give it gas just before his rear end broke loose – this is why i like to use my elbow to guige my throttle use!
Yup, Adey is right. He should be hanging off more to get the bike more upright. Especially if it was cold out that day. And it is all about the smoothness .
Nice Blog Adey, Keep it up!
I have bookmarked your website so that I can come back & read more in the future as well. Please do keep up the quality writing.
This article was extremely interesting, especially since I was searching for thoughts on this subject last week
