    There you go

    Seems like he just target fixated and locked up the rears, instead of just leaning over. Can't see why he couldn't have ridden that one out. Must be inexperience. He's damn lucky he didn't lowside with the lockups and the dirt.
  4. :shock: I guess he did well to miss them all.

    Bet the people in the cars/utes were pissed off!
  5. It looks like he took the wrong line, I reckon he should have been out wider to get his view then dipped into the turn, he took a very straight line.
  6. I reckon he just came in too fast and wasnt confident enough to lean the bike over. he kept a level head though. could have lowsided it, but didnt.

    just inexperienced.
  7. One lucky rider, I was trying to work out if he was braking from the speedo numbers but its a bit hard to see. I would guess target fixation on the oncoming car and braking tending to sit the bike upright and force it wider in the turn.

    In any case brown trouser time. :)
  8. He never attempted to take the turn. He got around the first 1/3 of the turn with about 10 degrees lean angle. Wasn't going too fast, just never attempted it. You've gotta give the corner a go before you've got ANY chance of getting around it.
