Because Crashing is Learning...

I figure I'll start this forum off, having been the victim of numerous ass-to-pavement altercations over the years. The section was questioned at first, as crash posts often turned into flame-fests. But after some discussion, it was decided that a lot can be learned from the discussion of such mishaps.

Former World Superbike / 500 GP / AMA Superbike star Anthony Gobert once said "Crashing is Learning". I tend to think of it as "Crashing is Learning - the hard way. There are easier ways." But if you've already done it, you may as well determine why it happened, and what you can do to prevent it from happening again.

That sums up this forum. Hopefully we don't see you posting here - but if you do, we hope you get something out of it

This concept has been thought about for a while.. and when we had some really active and great resources to moderate it we are going for it.

This forum will be moderated with an eye to keep it informational as we do in the Keith Code thread. It is not for flaming and making fun or riddiculing, but rather to insight thought about the crash.. or the near crash. TO understand why.. how it might have been avoided etc.. to help others or the one who fell understand the WHY..

I too have hit the asphalt, dirt, ground and even a horse trailer.
I know what if feels like to fall off at over 100 MPH and walk away because I had the right gear on.. and on the reverse fall at 25mph on some leafs and getting a concussion after high siding.

Object here: To learn.

Best
