Man, you are really dragging your knee.

Sorry to hear about the crash, hopefully you are ok. At least you got it on camera.

C'mon, you're just teasing us, right? Is that really Mike (HondaF4i) doing the crashing while you were setting up the camera?

Hoped all you got was a bruised ego...

I'm ok, bruised elbow/knee and a tweeked hip. But the bike and I are already to go again. I would have rode again after the crash but there was just too much dirt and sand all over, and in, the bike to do it safely.

what "got you" there Ryan? I always ran over that patch and only recently started entering the turn later to try to avoid the patch, it always distracted me.

Let me start with a little background:

I'm trying to use up my tire stock and I was running a 190/50 Michelin M2 and my suspension is set up for the 180/55 PR5 120/70 PR2 Power Race. Well up until the crash I was having rear grip problems so I dropped the rear ride height 2mm and took out some rear preload to get a little more rear grip and that worked.

Here is what I think happened:

I never really paid the patch any mind because I always run just outside of it. I've started running deeper into T7 causing me to get really good drive out of T8 and a fast corner entrance into T9 so I've been trying to run further to the inside on the exit of T9 so I don't blow T10/11. I know I ran right over the patch and it was enough of a bump that, combined with the lesser amount of front end bias, that I lost the front end. There was no front push at all it just tucked.

Solution:

Run the entrance to T9 wider and run between the patch and the paint exiting T9. Use the model tire I have the suspension set up for and stop trying to save money on rubber.
