Why'd ya do that? I think you were supposed to go more to the left.

So, what do you think you did wrong? Looks like you bailed on the corner too early to me but I can't really see how fast you were going. Did the other bikes ahead of you distract you? Lets have the play by play from you to get a good idea of what was going through your mind. I have done that as well a couple of times and got a little luckier than you on the offroad part and managed to stay upright.

When you can get up and walk away on your own, it's a good thing. Replace the parts and go back out there. Thanks for sharing.

Now that you know not to use the front brake on grass... and to look through the turn because where you look is where you go... get out there and have some more fun...

Used to teach track days at several California tracks.... seen a lot worse. Good luck and glad you and the bike weren't hurt very bad....

She ran but did not ride. The shift lever was bent so bad it went all the way under the peg.
