Don't put that foot down, don't do it!

I might have tried some rear brake and let the primary grind all the way through the turn. A better entry would have helped too. But in the end it might have been more speed than that bagger could handle in the turn.

A lowered bagger and way more speed than he could handle, he was screwed from the start.

Yes, exactly, along with poor line choice and a failure to plan far enough ahead.

Doesn't look he was leaning that much before he started scraping. It's amazing he didn't get hurt.

Sounds to me like a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here. In the wind.

And what's wrong with that? If that were me and my bike, I wouldn't want it other way! It is important to do an autopsy of a failure to learn from it, to understand why and to make adjustments to bike and/or riding style etc.
This was a particularly good example of leverage at work. When he was down hard enough on the hard part(s), it took more and more weight off of the rear tire and put it right onto the spark making parts.... Then u hear the motor rev as the back tire looses all the rest of the grip and spins and then the bike falls the rest of the way. Too much speed with too little clearance and probably not enough experience to save it when he still had the chance...
The foot dragging was a good way to break an ankle or worse, and I think he was lucky to get up and walk away without much worse damage to him and his beautiful scoot!!!

Well, he recovered well. He looked like he just stole home... Slid in and walked away.. The planning was nonexistent but the recovery looked very cool. The best part is that he is out a bunch of money to repair that ride. I doubt it will make him think about it but it still makes me feel better that he wrecked it. the bottom line is whether I feel better or not because people that dumb don't need to matter.

He does keep his cool after the slide. And his entry didn't help much.

But I think he could have made it thru had he kept his foot up. He was almost to the apex when his foot caught the pavement, thru his leg back into the bag and pulled his body position off line. You can see the back end wash out right then.

I think the damage on that primary was from the crash, the sparks in the turn, while he was still on two wheels, came from the floorboard support.

That's what happens when you ruin a Perfectly good bagger.

That bag is what saved his foot. Try getting your foot under the primary sometime. Analyze that. Unless your butt was in the saddle, you got nothing to say. In the wind.

I'm sure glad the guy is ok. I could never have taken it so coolly after dropping it.

Target fixation at it's finest, looked like he was making sure the camera was still on him after he started walking away too. Those baggers sure flip purdy, nothing like sliding on your ass down asphalt at 50MPH watching all those parts flying off.

I ran over my foot once with my YZ. That was many moons ago and I still remember it. Caught a toe in the dirt, threw my foot right back under the rear tire. Remembering that helps keeps me on the floorboards.

Analysis just may help others from making similar mistakes.

Great post dyne, thanks.
