I would say what caused it was thinking the street was the track based on the first pic. Glad to hear he is ok though as the one pic bouncing off the tree is pretty gnarly!

No way to know for sure unless he came on and gave more details about the crash. I can tell you what his first mistake was, though.

Same mistake many of us make every day out on the street... out riding your margin of safety. If your friend was going fast enough to have his knee on the ground, he would have needed to be looking up the road for his next turn before he finished the one he was in. That means any kind of crap on the ground that could cause a loss of traction could possibly go unnoticed by the rider. The simple truth is... there are many variables to account for on the street, and the faster you go, the less you see.

Could this crash have been caused by a simple error at the controls of the bike? Sure. It could have been caused by a lot of things. The important thing to remember is that a crash is usually caused by more than one factor. If your friend is having trouble figuring out what it was, please invite him to come and chat about it here. There's a few really good crash analysts on this board.

Great pics and awesome crash. He was going too fast for the conditions. I base that on his body position, which says he was riding race track speed on the street. Tell him not to worry, that he can do that on the track all day long and get away with it. The pic also shows street tires, which are not necessarily the best for the track.

well he is not racing it as he is on base, that is why he put street tires on his race bike, as you can see the lights are just stuck on their too to make the bike street legal for the time being until he could get it back on the track.

Maybe pushing it just a little harder than normal while trying to show off for the camera was a contributing factor

looks like lean angle so extreme the slider is about to drag. lean angles like that are seen on tracks with crazy corner speed

Wow that's a cool sequence of shots! Are you going to buy the hi-def ones?

Did he get injured at all from the crash?

Like others have said multiple factors can cause a crash, especially on the street; riding out of your safety margin.

Perhaps he shouldnt be riding on a public road as if he was on the track.

Crash would be avoided by using common sense.

Glad he's okay.

Actually pure luck saved him, all that gear wouldnt do anything if he hit one of those trees head first and ended up with head/neck/spine injuries and a slew of internal bleeding

He crashed because he was going too fast for the street.

Glad to see that your friend doesnt care about the safety of others.... Not only did he lose control of his own bike, he slid out of his lane, into the opposing lane, and then crashed.

Thank goodness that no one else got hurt, do to his recklessness.
