I agree. But you know Dani has struggled even with traction control to keep the rear tire under him. Sometimes they get the traction control set up right and sometimes they don't. Sucks that he caught his knee on the curb though. What was it that he actually cut his knee on? Interesting view of a high-side though.SilverSurfer said:The bikes have traction control. His weight is not a detriment as much as it is a benefit, especially in drives off the corner.
What "Mini-me" does have is the same problem Casey Stoner has and that's tucking the front end (The same problem Nicky had for a while). It's learning that these bikes are heavier than the 250s and load the front up pretty heavy on braking -- sometimes to the point of tucking the front end.
He didn't highside because of the rear losing traction, he high sided due to tucking the front and getting his knee caught on the curbing.
