What are the odds of a Go-Pro camera catching a full highside! I don't know, watch this and find out! Recorded Jan 7 2011, right before the WERA weekend. Looks like I'm out for a while...Thank God I walked away without any breaks. I will post pictures of the bike at MyThrottle.net once I'm a little better off.

Motorcycle Q&A: How do I prevent a highside crash?
BMW's pro racer, Nate Kern talks with Carlyle about dealing with highside
"A highsider or highside is a type of motorcycle accident characterized by
sudden & violent rotation of the bike around its long axis. This generally
happens when the rear wheel loses traction, skids, and then suddenly
regains traction, creating a large torque which flips the rider head first
off the road. The initial traction loss may be caused by a rear locked
wheel due to excessive braking or by applying too much throttle when
exiting a corner or by oversteering the bike in the turn or by any loss of
traction to the rear wheel. Examples are: attempting to turn too sharply
and leaning the bike past the limit of tire adhesion; rolling off the edge
of the tire sidewall; levering the rear tire off the ground by scraping the
Exhaust, peg, leg, foot, or knee; or
overstressing the rear tire if it's too cold or worn-out or there is oil,
water, sand, dirt, ice, paint marks, or other patches of reduced traction
on the road. Highsides differ from lowsides as follows: during a lowside
the rear wheel slips laterally and continuously until the bike falls onto
its side -- the side that's inside the corner, while during a highside the
rear wheel slips laterally only briefly before suddenly regaining traction
and flipping the bike onto its other side -- the side that's outside the
corner. As a result highsides happen very quickly with little if any
warning and are very violent.
If the slipping rear tire suddenly regains traction while the bike is
side-slipping, the motorcycle will straighten-up very quickly. Often the
rider is thrown off before they can regain balance & control." Source:
Nate Kern has established himself as one of the most promising racers of
his time. He had only ridden on the track a few times before his March 2002
debut at Daytona Int. Speedway where he won 8 of 8 races and was
immediately moved to pro status.

Highside Crash Explained (Slow Motion)
Video of my crash at the TT Circuit of Assen. The rear wheel loses
traction, skids, and then suddenly regains traction, creating a large
torque which flips me head first off the bike and on the tarmac.

Motorcycle Crash & Burn on Mulholland
Click this link To watch all 80 crashes captured over the past four years.
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a mecca for motorcycles & fast
cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular visitors every
weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore and at a view
point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts. Crashes are
common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The Snake is a
two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders usually will
make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner when
assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are not
going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
severely. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi

My Crash on Mt Lemmon or be alert on ice.wmv
The motorcycle crash at actual speed (not slow motion like the first video
published a week ago). No music on this one; just the actual sounds
recorded by the GoPro Hero HD helmet cam. You can see me riding the
Victory Vision back down Mt Lemmon after the crash in another video
published last week right after the original crash video in slow motion.
Streets of Willow Springs with Starlane Overlay
A novice practicing on the track. Streets of Willow Springs is a fun and
technical tack. The track is 1.8 miles long, and a great place to work on
your technical skills and hard braking. It has a fun "bowl" before you hit
the straight. Lots of tight turns and a few elevation changes to keep you
The Timer Used is a Starlane Athon GPS Laptimer. My FL and intermediates
are not directly the same as the track so that is why is was difficult to
perfectly synchronize the video to the overlay.
