Talking Track Chick Needs A Little Help

So, I did Texas World Speedway on Saturday. I felt great. Lap times just aren't what I was looking for. My body position is good, looking into the turn like I'm supposed to.
Maybe you guys can take a look at this pic and tell me what I'm doing wrong

I have NO idea how I managed to get on top of the bike and surf it. I know you're supposed to seperate yourself from the bike but it's hard to make yourself dismount when you're avoiding the pavement from where you are.

Nothing too bad. Damage after a bath:
Ground off throttle sleeve/ throttle grip
busted master cylinder (was planning on installing SS brake lines - just found an interesting way to drain the lines)
starter switch housing busted open but I got it back together/ in working order
oil leak but it was just a pinched filter gasket
plastics are trashed / tie wraps FTW!!

In the first pic, it looks like you're counter leaning a bit. Drop that shoulder and head in the direction you're going.





Cool photo!

It had rained pretty hard the day before and all night but I felt like I had pretty good traction. Was pushing it (because I want to make sure and pass the boys ..lol)
People are saying it was slick and I slipped cause it was wet but my focus Saturday was exit speed and I think I got on it too hard and took the weight off the front tire. That turn puts you off camber anyway

Are you going clockwise or counter-clockwise and with it a left or right corner?
Looks to me that you were going counter-clockwise (coming from the left to the right side of the picture) to a right handed coner.

Were you scarping any metal before you went down?

Only thing I can think of is that your front end wish out. Do you have any scarp on your front tire. scarp are starting on contact patch and moves out to the outer/edge of the tire.

I saw more track picture of you on your myspace.

Your body position is looking good in some of them,
Some of those with bad body position is telling me you lost the front tire.

The one I did like. You need to move your head over to the side and maybe a little lower.
Your looking good tho

Myspace pics are from last season. This is only my second season. I'm sure my body position is bad. I'm still learning.... I try
After talking to everyone it was decided that it was a highside then lowside combo. I do remember it going right which is what put me on top/ then slapping down to the left
here are earlier in the day

turn 4. rediculi !!
I've had the ass end slide out. Those butt puckering moments.. but never on 4. Seems like a simple enough turn. Might have been off camber from wheelie hill.
Was working on exit speed. Maybe I got on it too hard and took too much weight off the front end. Maybe it was from the 18 hours of rain the night before... not sure. Seemed like I had traction the session before

I was already in the garage the next day taking her apart.
Everything is replaced/fixed except I'm waiting on a master & throttle sleeve ... then I'm good

BUT I figured since I already "drained" the brake lines I should go ahead and put on SS brake lines... and maybe some gilles clip ons... and I really like those OPP radiator hoses but I don't think they're worth the money (they just add visual horsepower)

It's very rare to lose the front coming out of a turn. You see guys coming out of turns all the time with the front completely off the ground, and nothing bad happens.

It's pretty common to break the rear end loose coming out of a turn. Things can get out of control pretty quickly after that happens. Try this next time. First, stay off the bike as you come out of the turn and start accelerate. In fact, lean off the bike more if you can. That will get the bike to stand up up sooner and allow you to accelerate on the fat part of the tire.

Then, don't climb back in the saddle until you are straight up and down heading down the straightaway. Every time you move on the bike, it upsets the suspension. No big deal if you're straight up and down. Maybe a problem if you're still leaned over.

Also, make sure your weight is on your toes, not on your butt, as you exit the corner. If the bike bucks a little bit it's no big deal if you're on your toes. If your weight is on the seat, it throws you up in the air.

Last, use the throttle like a ratchet coming out of a turn. Add a little throttle. Anything bad happen? No, add a little more. Anything bad happen? No, add a little more. And so on. If something bad happens, wait for it to calm down before you add any more throttle.

Fabulous pics, btw. Great attitude too.
