since this is a sticky now, i reckon it may as well be the 190 tyre fryers track section :D

and with that said, i almost flipped my R1 yesterday down the main straight

came out of the corner in 2nd and i had been giving the throttle a little whack.. i guess starting to practice my 2nd gear powerups. i was just lifting the front up a little bit and trying to hold it there you know like you see on the superbikes and motoGP eheh.. one of the track instructors came out to follow me around for a bit too see how fast i was actually going round, after he saw me doing it

but he missed my 10 clock >13000RPM 2nd gear moment.. im not too sure how fast that is (im on stock sprockets so if anyone wants to figure it out)

when the RPM hit about 12500 it just STOOD UP FARK and at the speed i was doing the wind resistance felt like it was still pushing the bike up threatening to flip even with the throttle chopped ack

what corner? turn 12 at phillip island?
