The photo seems to have changed. Originally it was a guy on a GSXR, cranked over in a turn, wearing a Harley-style brain bucket ... BACKWARDS!!! Now it appears to be guy wearing ATGATT on an R1/R6.

DirtyOldMan--whatever it is that you're missing, I seem to be missing it too? Didn't get it.

Yes there is; wear something so we can see who you are.

Good to remember when linking to anything from US129 Photos - Don't! Copy the pic somewhere else first.

Any track day I've attended, the beginner group generally has 1-2 crashes PER SESSION, the first 2-3 sessions of the day. The Dragon IS the beginner session on public roads.

YMMV,

Amazing? My experience has been the opposite at track schools and track days. The beginners rarely crash. The so-called 'fast group' has the crashers. Fortunately, they are set up for crashing and rarely sustain real injury due to good gear and much practice at crashing.

Crashing is something I don't want to have a lot of practice at.

Most websites don't like or don't allow hotlinking to their pictures. It costs them money.
