My 140mph Highside (1199R)

As requested a thread about my incident.

Had an interesting birthday weekend. (2 days ago)

Started off great then everything went up in the air.

I was up and on my feet within 1 hour of the violent crash- my body covered a good 700 feet flipping end over end.




Oil line bursted- bike caught on fire at 170mph started my tip into the 130mph chicane and I went flying-

And no.. steering stem nut wasn't the culprit.. lower stem nut was properly torqued to the steering head bearings. The top triple was pinched tight to the stem.. didn't even budge after the highside

More pics and such

Notice the red glow on my glove (while I'm taking flight) bikes on fire

Man, that was hard to watch. Glad you're ok. I know you just got that thing buttoned back up.

Any pics of the gear? Anything salvageable at all?

Jeezus, that looks frightening! Glad to hear you are OK and were up and about quickly - very lucky. Braided oil line hoses a possibility? What do you think would cause that; heat, pressure, both? Good luck with the rebuild.

Glad your ok mate. I had a lowside last year on my 1299 at 140kph (87mph), a highside at 140mph is just crazy! I'm surprised your bike looked better than mine after the crash!

OMG dude!!!

That is absolutely unreal how & where that happened AND even more unreal is that you walked away from this from tumbling on the damn asphalt of all things too!

You are one lucky SOB my man - so sorry to see your bike smashed to pieces. I wont even use the typical line about "Bikes & stuff being replaceable" but you not! (Guess I just did) but seriously brother. So glad to see you walked away from this and all the best for getting both the bike and your state of mind back together in hope getting back on a bike doesn't become a problem. God bless you my friend!
Thanks from tadashi
