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
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,
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.

traffic."Onboard footage with Tyler Kirk. Tyler is now a responsible rider
and hopes nobody will repeat or try riding a motorcycle in such an
irresponsible manner. Tyler is an adrenaline junky and used his motorcycle
in a very dangerous way to get that burning yet pleasurably warm,
exhilarating yet calming adrenaline rush. He came close to dying many
times. He encourages people to obey the law and new riders to get their
experience on the racetrack where it is safe."
