    crash at braking [track] ... again

    the common mistake in winter riding is trying to make a top chrono at 3C.
    Even the 5 lap warm up was not sufficient to have tires at the right temperature.

    I blocked the front wheel just before starting my first fast lap. hopefully, rider in front was far enough not to get in the bike trajectorie, 200kg at 180km/h.... it would have been pretty ugly




    bikes is under repair, hope to be back soon

    Best thing is you're okay! I was expecting the bike to go down going into or exiting the turn.
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    indeed, I wasn't expecting a front slide at the begining of the braking zone neither. especially with dry condition. maybe I wasn't as straight than I thought.

    it's the second time this kind of thing happen to me. unfortunatly for me, the first time my FZ6 went into the grass, makes lot of tumbling and brake it's frame.




    this time its repairable
