A lot of these accidents can be prevented if they had taken proper safety training and/or a combination of wearing proper gear. How many of those pictures on that page alone were due to lack of gear? i.e. helmets/gloves/boots etc.

Not going to click on the link and have the mental image recalled everytime I take a corner... just remember to brake on the straight and enter the corner dead slow.

There's no reason to not wear gear in Vancouver, the weather is dam nice.

Most of those road rash incidents could have been avoided, if people were wearing proper gear. Sure wearing a t-shirt, shorts and sandals are nice on a hot day out, but if you think its too hot to ride, then drive a car. Comfort should not be the deciding factor.

I urge people to get proper training. If they dont have the training, then i wont ride with them. Simple as that.

Even with proper training, full gear, and a high sense of self-control stuff still goes down.

Maybe it's time to quit street riding and stick to track days for me.

Judging by the pictures of those accidents, most of them, if not all, were in the US. There are a tonne of states out there that do not have a law which requires you to wear AT LEAST a helmet. Pretty ass backwards if you ask me. And television shows like Orange Country Choppers kind of promote squiding. Monkey see - monkey do. Go figure.

This weekend I got a good stick to the neck.

I was dirt-biking thru a over-grown trail and behind some leaves there was a 1" tree that had fallen part way, it had went under my helmet and gave me a good bit of rash as i went by. After that I called it quits on bush wackin....

Went out yesterday night and 10pm for some practice riding in the rain, kept under speed limit or even below at all times.

Anyways, I was going down the snake hill between North Road and Coquitlam centre.. I downshifted before the corners to get a good RPM range to make the turns with enough throttle..

When I downshifted, I revmatched, but not quite enough, and what happened was my rear kinda went out of control and slided side to side... I was lucky enough to ease gently on the throttle to get back in control right before I went in the corner but was scared shitless to take the corner on at a reasonable speed, slowing down a car behind me throughout the turn..

I thought slipper-clutch and rev-matching was supposed to stop a rear slip (it definately doesn't slip ever in dry roads, but much more sensitive in the rain) now I'm just traumatized to ride corners confidently in the rain lol!!

My guess is that I didn't rev-match enough, was going about 50 in 3rd, shifted down to 2nd but I was shocked at how easy it was to slip on your rear lol.

Anyone got any tips to conquer this? What I'm gonna do is definately work on blipping harder with the throttle on downshifts, as I blipped too little yesterday, imo.

a slipper clutch isn't going to completely get rid of rear wheel slip. however at those speeds (not counting actual engine speed as you didn't indicate any) I highly doubt that your slipper clutch is doing anything. it only works after a certain limit. eg. shifting from 4th to 2nd going 100km/h.

loss of traction was more likely because of other factors than your slipper clutch reasoning especially at 50km/h

how fast did you let the clutch out when you downshifted?

Absolutely. There are a lot of posts from new riders on various forums about lowsiding right after leaving their house. Cold tires don't stick, keep the bike upright in the corners will you've been able to build up some heat. Especially as mornings get cooler and damp in the fall.
