Explain this....?

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by beansbaxter, May 9, 2005.

  1. After replaying it a couple doesn't look like there was anything in the road and it didn't look like he buckled the rim (rumored to be possible during stoppies). I think he (don't know why) locked up the front and bottomed out the front fender on the upper fairing)...this is the only thing I could think of. Something made him stop VERY quickly and got the bike airborne...maybe the rebounding forks from locking the front???

  2. SQUISHY FORKS!!! The triumph has the way soft ST suspension, and Ive noticed a couple times that if I get the back in the air and dont modulate carefully, it will bob on the soft forks. Bad rebound I suppose, but then again is a 450lb ST supposed to be stunting?

    the squeaking sounds like his rotors or something. maybe there was something in it.

    and right before he flips, it looks like had the handle bars turned...

    You can hear the squealing sound the whole time he's breaking and then the thunk. It sounds like a break issue to me. Scary thing is that he's on an R6... :?

  5. Ouch! Sure sounds like something broke... :shock:
