    This thread is nuts. I had no idea bikes could be pushed so far in cornering.
    Continue!

    S'funny you should mention that. Nordrhein Westfalen plod arrived at the same conclusion and brought around half a tree's worth of safety literature. Unfortunately...

    1) its all in german, rendering it useless to almost all of the recipients.

    2) it was full of academia. The pschychological or skill-set reasons why people fall of bikes are fascinating, but are also fuggall use when the guests forget to ride on the right side of the road.

    3) when you've travelled several hundred miles to ride a racetrack, strangely folks are not all ears about 70kph bullshit speed limits. I can and have cycled faster you numbskulls.


    Anyway Dan, it'll be shiny and new soon enough. Shall we post up why you crashed? Might help someone else.

    Yep no problem, i'll send images over. Still going over it and I had every reason to stop, but just a few too many to continue, as you said, in retrospect it's simple...

    Yep, absolutely fine, cheers. Plus no barrier damage and they haven't started charging for turf replacement yet

    The skies cleared around lunch on Sunday and I decided to go out for a couple of laps. Nice and steady wanting to check it was dry all round before possibly upping the pace on the second left. Went into the right at T13 by the armco and lost the front, very pronounced slide with sudden return of grip. Cold tyres I thought.

    Finished the lap, track all dry, sun still shining. Went out for second lap feeling pretty sure the tyres were warm. T13, same again! By the end of Hatzenbach I had concluded something on the track. Got to AF, slow round the left, and accelerating around the right, and down I went.

    Even before the (rather attractive) lady marshall had arrived, I was trying to work out how I had slid up the track in front of the bike, must have lost the front, but accelerating?

    Long story short, after Andy had looked over the bike, and we had discussed options it seems the fork seal had gone.

    All 3 incidents were: Compression pushing oil out (Tiergarten and Foxhole) followed by slow left (allowing the right side of the tyre to receive a nice coating of oil) followed by decent lean on the right hand side.

    Luckily the faster bends were no problem as the amount of steering is minimal, leaving the fairing to catch the oil.

    Here lies the body of Mary Lee, died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years she kept her virginity, not a bad record for this vicinity.
