Except they didn't grip all the way through the corner.One thing I may add is, the first photo should be used by Pirelli as an advertisment to the fenominal grip of the Corsa III! That bike has serious lean and a true testimonial to how close to race grip the modern day street tire has.
I don't know. Looks like the front end was already tucking. But for the milisecond before it actually broke loose, it does make for a good photo.But,,,,,,,,,,,,,, when that photo was taken they were gripping just fine!
No one can question the lean angle on those puppies.
Or he rolled out of the trottle ,loaded the front tire, and tucked it.The shot that would probably show it - missed. You have the before, and the aftermath, but not a shot of where he broke it off at. In my VERY HUMBLE WHEN TALKING TO STEVEN opinion, wonder if he just tapped that throttle a little too hard at that high lean angle....
Sounds like you hit it.i think he didn't get off the seat far enough, ended up leaning the bike too much, scrubbed the hard parts, unloaded the rear end, and lost traction...just my guess from what i see and what i have seen several times riding behind those who went down while i managed to get stopped without dumping my ride or running over them
it's always amazing to me when people make a comment about someone riding too hard on a certain piece of asphault and crashing when the person right behind them made it around the same curve while also having to negotiate around or through the crashing rider...most of the time, it isn't the road or the bike, it is the rider making a mistake...those tires will take almost anything you can throw at them other than a full race situation...just my meaningless $.02
