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 =)

Motorcycle Crash at Deals Gap
Local KTM Rider passes us on a blind corner just to have a Stupid Harley
rider waiting for him in the middle of the road.
The Harley guy lost his gloves and was trying to pick em up, but the KTM
guy (was not with us) passed up because we were going little bit too slow
for his pace and came up on the HD guy. No one was injured and everyone
My First Motorcycle Crash !!! ($h!t finally caught up to me)
They tell me if you ride, it's not a matter of if, but when you crash.
Well, after a little over 2 years of riding and some 5 track days later, it
finally happened to me. =P
I'm glad I was "let down easy" for a first crash and that it took placed on
a track. Both bike and me ended up coming to a stop off the track so there
was little risk of getting ran over from the guys behind. No injuries to
myself. Some scuff on leathers. Bike's sliders took the bulk of the damage.
Left clip-on bar needs replacement, shifter peg sheared off, shift linkage
bent, some rear body work damage aw well as rear passenger foot peg mount.
Got to get it back running for another track day in 2 weeks time. Same
INSANE way to wash your Supersport Motorcycle!! Yamaha R1 takes a BATH!!

Girlfriend + car wash + bikini + bike = Free track day for me!
Our local motorcycle forum, Band of Riders .net, offered a free track day
from Tony's Track Days to anyone who could convince their girlfriend to go
through a car wash in a bikini on the back of their motorcycle. Being that
I love track days, my girlfriend loves me, AND she's awesome, it didn't
take TOO much convincing to make it happen...

Harley Davidson Lowside Motorcycle Crash
Customized Harley Bagger crash near the Rock Store. Great recovery, used
momentum to land back on his feet then just walked away while bike was
still crashing. Very lucky, he was uninjured except just a quarter size
spot of road rash on his knee. AKA Harley Street Glide
