Z's Motorcycle Crash
It's a horrible thing to see one of your closest friends go down. Luckily the tire he was wearing took the brunt of the impact.
What caused the crash?
Although Z rode nearly 60miles on his new rear tire, I believe the tire wasn't broken in yet. Immediately after the tire was mounted we jumped onto the freeway and the tire was only used in the center leaving the sides of the tires unscrubbed. I also might have jinxed him...
How could this have been prevented?
The bike should have been ridden around the parking lot practicing a series of slow but aggressive turns. Z should have also taken the turn with more care.
