Why my leathers will never smell the same again


I was on an SV650 and my buddy's track bike is a CBR929RR, I think I do fairly well keeping up with him. I lose him on the back straight (we run at TGPR) when he has the HP to get around traffic, but as in this video I'm normally caught back up to him by the 90's I make up a lot of time up in the exit of turn 1

Already know what went wrong, my first movement is a reaction to the rear breaking loose. I had to much air pressure in my tires (35psi cold, which is what I normally run on the street, I was at the cherahola skyway with some friends the day before and forgot to adjust pressures) and tried to throttle on a little too early a little too hard coming out of the corner. I still need to work on my body positioning as well. I'm getting my *** way off the seat but I tend to keep my body over the tank. Looking at pics and video I felt like I was a lot farther off the bike than I actually was.

I don't think there was any skill involved. I'm pretty sure it was 100% luck I just relaxed my grip and let the bike right itself and hoped that I had enough runoff

Nice! I hate that corner, you think they could repave the dang thing. I used to just ride it on the outside and paint stripes coming out of it so I could get a little bit of right side tire wear.

Nice survival! I hate that foot or feet off the peg feeling.

Well done! good save. SV650 make a great track bike. I raced one for a little while. Your learn a lot about going fast, great for learning corner speed.

Plus they crash well!!!! don't worry parts are cheap and plentiful
