Fair enough. I guess I wasn't entertaining that thought out of sheer ignorance is bliss.
Low side and high side are crashes that result from losing mechanical grip. A low side is what I posted in the previous Marc Marquez clip (sorry can't embed).
I really doubt riders have a true low side or high side on public roads too often because they're not taking corners nearly this hard. Dropping the bike or something else stupid, at least imho, is what most often happens.
Most of the client's I've had are pretty experienced riders with easily 20-40 years under their belts. But I'm sure none have the skills or reflexes of a professional rider.
Yea, I can understand not wanting something like wrecking an exotic to hang over your buddy's head. A few guys I know with other exotics have offered to let me drive theirs to see what it is like, and insurance isn't the issue...I'd just feel badly if something happened even if its not my fault. So I always decline...also my older toy doesn't have electronic save your a$$ traction control etc, and when you get into car's that are out of production they aren't as easy to replace in terms of condition and knowing its full history.
No worries. Have a great day and wishing you all the best with med school
I have a little naked SV650. It's a fun little bike that has a bit of go and has the added benefit of my always knowing how fast I'm going because anything about 60 feels like hell if you don't have a windscreen taking the air off your chest.
What a difference 10 years can make. Thuxton has hidden liquid cooling, traction control, ABS, 3 differnt rider modes, a cool ass instrument cluster but most importantly a warranty all for under $15k. You'll pay more than that for a used SportClassic
