racing, motorcycle

why is 100mph my bane?

I crashed again this morning. Just about 100mph again at the bottom of the carousel (fast 5th gear 5 story right hand drop). I was carrying a bit more speed and lean angle, hit this little compression bump at the bottom and felt the rear start to come loose. That was enough to push the front and we just slid a few hundred feet.

No damage to me at all, not even sore. The bike needs a replacement clipon, toe peg and foot peg - that's it. I'm out riding the superbike now.
