Autoclub Highside Crash, MyThrottle.net GSXR Ouch!

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?
Please watch: "NEW BMW M2 Coupe & REVVING at 2016 Detroit Auto Show" ➨ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyT0HYtDfu4 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- BMW's pro racer, Nate Kern talks with Carlyle about dealing with highside crashes. High Side: "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: Wikipedia Nate Kern 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. Country: U.S.A.
