Dennis Noyes ran some statistics on crashing. The rate at which riders crash remains unchanged, between the 500s and the MotoGP bikes. The point of racing is to find the limit. Racers sometimes step over the limit when looking for it.
3 low sides in turn 10 last weekend. I don't remember many lowsides in the 2 stroke era. I'm not talking about the rate of crashing, I'm talking about the types of crashes. With the 500s it seemed like it was more often than not a high side.
