If the ass of the bike steps out..... Keep on the gas! The words resonate through your head then when you get that moment, the "off" switch just flips itself and lo and behold ye find yourself getting flung over the bike like a catapult! Arrrgghh! If you haven't worked it out yet, I had my first highside today and wrecked the only thing left to give me joy in this cursed recession! :? My advice to people is even when your body does it without thinking (throttling off) bloody hang it on! I am disgusted in my behaviour! I was overconfident, hooning through, not focusing on the drills, thinking how cool i would look in the bloody photos and found the limits of my skills. I'm bloody angry with myself and damn lucky i didn't hurt myself when i flew off at that pace (bike slid halfway from turn 12 till pit lane at EC to give u an idea). Ride within your limits, and don't panic when the sheez goes bejeezy. Basically everything that i did wrong that i knew how not to. BTW should post up some pics of the day over the next week or so....got some awesome photos but seriously, i'm an idiot and my bikes paid for it. Stay safe people. Oh yeh and got to meet a mod today!
