Yamaha R1 Track Day Motorcycle Crash With Slow Motion Replay
Me Epic (you be the judge of that) crash, fail, off, oops, duh, noob, fall, slide (Safe!!!), accident, dumb@ss, that's gotta hurt track day video.
Thumb up for the cool slow mo, a quick recovery and return or just 'cause you like to see sh1t happen (you sadistic son'uva...). Or the Special Ed "Yay" moment at the end :P
This is a video of me first track day at Buttonwillow. It is the next to last session of the day for C Group. Lots of offs that day. Hope everyone was ok. In spite of the cool day and me off, it was the best track day ever. "Yay"!!!
Can't wait for next year, more mods, more canyons, more tracks and more vids for you to enjoy.
For the "Keyboard Cowboys": Have at it. Say whatever makes you feel taller, smarter, better looking, studlier, etc. It don't phase me one bit ;)
For our supporters, viewers, fans, friends, riders, etc......this vid is for you to enjoy, learn from, or just watch and say Damn!!! We ride for ourselves, but also for you guys out there. That's why we post the good with the bad and almost everything in between. So I hope you give us a good rating and if you know someone who doesn't know us and might get something from this vid, please share it with them.
Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts xoxox =)
Stay warm or Speed safe or both if you can.
C ya soon (fingers crossed)
Per your requests. My thoughts on why I crashed (only my opinion, I am no expert):
My suspension was a bit to stiff for the bumpy sections of the track.
Had 3-4 lbs too much air in both tires.
Came in 2-3 mph faster than on previous laps/sessions.
Started on the binders a tad bit later to clear the slower rider without interferring with his entry.
Stayed on the binders a tad too long, coupled with the engine braking weighted the front a bit more than I was comfortable with.
Was at the end of the first lap, tires not cold, but not fully up to temp either.
Came in a little further to the left than previous passes and went over that shiny patch of asphalt.
I believe that all those factors together caused the front end to wash out. I do not believe the front locked up violently, may be it did at some point momentarily. Check the front tire for a flat spot or mark of any kind. After cleaning and inspecting the front tire, I could not find any flat spot, skid mark or other damage to the tire. Skid on the video is from the tire turning and rotating at and rotating slower than the forwrd momentum of the bike. It basically scrubbed the tire...hope that makes sense. Again this is just my humble opinion. If you can add or correct any of the above, I would appreciate it.
Thanks again for all the support =)

Yamaha R1 As a First Bike - Short Man Learning How To Ride His First Motorcycle Yamaha YZF-R1
Is Yamaha R1 good as a first bike? Just check this video out! He has
never ridden any motorcycle in his entire life.
This was filmed the next day after he brought the bike home, and must say
the progress was huge as for only one day. Since then he rides with us
whenever he can. He got his gear few days later so please don't hate for
We always ride geared up and we don't let others ride with us if they don't
have proper protection. He still needs some time to gain experience, which
is needed to ride motorcycle reliably.
Yamaha R1 is good as a first motorcycle until you are not an idiot and you
don't ride hard without experience.
I just uploaded video response to this video.
He rides so much better and is getting very good on the corners. Please
take a look at it before you leave a hateful comment. Click here to see

Yamaha R1 & R6 - Azusa Canyon Group Motorcycle Ride.avi
Really long vid of our group ride to Azusa Canyon. One vid to cover the
whole freakin' ride. Let me know what you think or if you'd prefer a few
shorter vids instead. We aims to please ;)
Crash damage shown and rider interviewed. Like any ride there are ups and
downs. Luckily the rider was ok and only minor damage to his bike and
pride. He was wearing armor under his jeans. That gear and him not
panicking minimized the damage to the bike and himself.
Total of 12 riders on various bikes: Yamaha R1 & R6, Yamaha V-Max, Suzuki
M-50, Honda CBR1000RR, Honda CBR600RR, Ducati 1198, Buell Firebolt (I
think?), Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, Kawasaki Ninja 636.
All in all our first large group ride of the year was pretty cool. Everyone
had fun and made it home ok.
Thanks to all the riders that participated. To those that couldn't make it
out this one, we'll see you on the next one ;)
Big welcome to Angie (Ninja ZX-6R), Vince (CBR1000RR Repsol) and Dakota
(Yamaha V-Max) for joining us for this ride. Hope ya'll make it out to the
next one in two weeks to the Big "O" (Ortega Highway).
Thanks for all the support and for watching.
Speed safe and wear the appropriate gear, it does make a difference.
INSANE way to wash your Supersport Motorcycle!! Yamaha R1 takes a BATH!!
The R1 had some dust on it, so a crazy rider takes it for a bath! :)
