Default Re: Harley Crash Riding at the GAP

I didn't see the video, but if he was on the brakes in the middle of the corner on a Harley he might have made it around the corner by releasing the brake and accelerating slightly. At least that's what works on my Harley. On my FLHS the bike squats down entering a corner too fast with the brakes applied. The counter-intuitive thing to do is to release the brakes and lift the throttle, which lifts the bike and suddenly you have all kinds of turning ability. But, of course you can't be going too fast into the corner on the brakes. Looking all the way through a corner is a better bet.

Wine gives you wisdom.



Beer gives you strength.



Water gives you bacteria.

He just shoulda gassed it and yanked on the bars, hopped right over that lil' old ditch.



Street riders, sheesh.

Not to mention being too confused and scared to do the only thing that makes a bike turn, which is countersteer and lean the bike. He might not even know that countersteering is how he's been turning the whole time.

Bike #2 looked so intent on following #1, I think the only thing that saved him was bike #1 dropping out of view
