My Triumph Street Triple R Crash

GB Racing frame sliders saved the entire bike, only some scratches left on the Exhaust, which I have since sanded out. Looks good as new!

Yep... a little inattention to the clutch and this happens.

Street Triple crashes in a tight corner
2008 Triumph Street Triple lowsides in a tight corner on Panoramic Highway. :( Skip to 2:15 for the crash, slow motion replays, and video of the damage. The Exhaust sound in the video is from the camera bike, not me. The bike and the tires were not at their traction limit. The road had to have been the major factor. I have leaned quite farther on this bike before. I was completely unhurt - not a scratch, no bruises, nothing was even sore. Wear your gear on rides like this. Looking at the slow motion video, you can see my handlebars turn (front tire loses traction) at the same time as the rear tire loses it. I did not touch the brakes at all. The damage to the bike: Bent handlebar at the clamp (fixed by loosening the bolts and re-tightening) Scratched clutch lever and bar end (non-issue really) Lost the turn signal switch Scratched mirror (it rotated on its mount, so it didn't break off, non-issue) Bad scratch on the engine case Shifter bent 90 degrees Rear plastic cracked The tank was untouched. I rode the bike home. The only thing I'm replacing is the shifter. As for my gear: tiny scratch on the jacket, boots and pants only scratched on the plastic sliders, and one glove was scratched on the carbon fiber knuckle. The helmet did not impact. My gopro was on the bike following me, so I don't have on-board footage. This was my first crash after 2 years of riding.

Ducati Streetfighter 848 vs Triumph Street Triple R! - On Two Wheels Episode 25
On this episode of On Two Wheels, Sport Rider Magazine's Bradley Adams and Eric Nugent pit Ducati's Streetfighter 848 against Triumph's all-new 2013 Street Triple R as part of this year's middleweight naked bike comparison. The two quickly learn that planning a trip in the middle of January wasn't their smartest decision in recent years, but ultimately discover how versatile these bikes truly are. In typical On Two Wheels fashion, only one bike can come out on top, but which will it be? Triumph's lighter, 675cc Street Triple R, or Ducati's elegant, traction control-equipped Streetfighter 848?

Triumph Legend motorcycle crash Uptown Whittier
That's my buddy on the 1999 Triumph Legend 900. He's a new rider and just got his bike back from the shop. We strapped a GoPro Hero2 on him (using the chest mount) to record his ride. The seating position (and possibly his height) gave us a low point of view with the chest mount. That's my brother-in-law on the 2009 Suzuki GSX-R 750 and me on the 2012 Ducati Hypermotard 796.
