Down but not out!

Took the 990r to the track and promptly low sided it @ about 55 mph ... second session, tarmac still warming up, second lap, good lean, go to tighten line to clip apex, get on the gas a bit and then . I see the bike travel on its side across the track unaccompanied, bounce over the rumble strip and onto the run off whilst I follow it and stop sliding on the track !!! .... predictable maybe

I really thought that was my 2 days on track over but this is what happened:

Really glad I got some bungs last week, and those big plastic ones may look ugly but they do their job


It had been kind of soft on stock settings (which I feel contributed to my off) so I got my stock suspension set up by the guys from Crescent after that and what a difference ... much more feel and better able to react to my will without upsetting the balance ....

Exclamation Ouch

Glad to see you seem to be okay mate. Make sure you get some engine protection happening before you go out next time.

Good advice! It will go out again - and it'll have a few more bits on it, including casing covers!

Ugh...

Sorry to hear... Buy a CBR600 to tear it up on the track. When you throw it away in a turn and you're sliding along you can yell WEEEEEEE! instead of "Oh my god, that didnt just happen"

Hope you get it fixed up soon!

Not a thing, but I'd rather throw a disposable Bic Lighter down the track than a Rembrant...

Typical crap attitude from gutless Jap bike riders, there is no difference, except it being more fun on a MV. Anybody can ride a Honda........
Is there some f....king book that tell's you when you can track a bike or when not.
Sorry mate, this attitude is wearing me down a bit, there is a lot of guys on here who track their MV's, if you want to compare it to a useless piece of paint, so be it, but don't tell us we should not be riding our bike's in a way they were designed to be used in the first place.
I have seen blokes with Desmosidi's and CC's on the track, you going to tell them to get a CBR......
