i have seen a lot of clips where they wreck at low speeds and quite a bit of damage.

Guess it's time to do new mods and custom paint

QFT

Peg hit, "Oh Siht!", stand bike up, "Now what do I do?", look at that nice soft dirt next to that really hard asphault, "Oh Siht, Bank!", Spike front brakes causing tire washout. Live and you learn, hopefully he watches this video and learns from his mistakes, or one of his friends can give him some sound advice for what to do next time.

Oops!

I don't claim I'd do better, though it's plain the peg scrape caused a significant overreaction.

oh man what a bummer... he could have easily saved it if he had just turned her back in after standing up. looked like he had plenty of time and room too.

Bad control / target fixation / panicking.

All of the above.

If he had aftermarket rearsets(up 1", back 1") he wouldn't scrapped in the 1st place. I have them on my F23 and never heard the peg scrape. Though my boot is missing off a piece from toe protector off my racing boot.


I also agree with "all the above".
