Is that your cam in the video? Did you speak to the guy on the other bike?

Thats the turn the guys usually tell you to be easy on when the session first starts (when going CCW like in the video) yeah? Traffic there gets bad. The only other highside I have seen there was on my first track day. Dude on a Duc highsided out of the bowl. I saw it from all the way across lol. That high side was motoGP worthy.

Overtaking rider has responsibility for safe pass. Looks like he came in a little hot and left himself nowhere to go when lead rider set up wide for the next turn, then grabbed a bit too much brake. Guy ended up with 3 broken vertebra, broken collar bone and a concussion.

Yes my cam in the video, and yes talked to the other guy. He told me not my fault. Don't like seeing people crashing that close to me either way. On a different note, best crash I have ever filmed.
