100mph high side on my Yamaha YZF-R6

I am providing some images of crash damage sustained during a test (in preparation for Thundersport GB championship) Donington park during a wet session recently. I sustained a high side at approximately 100mph at the old hairpin during a torrential downpour. The bike landed on the left side and slid for some distance at speed from the track surface into the grass. 

As standard, I have a full range of R&G products fitted to my race bike. In this instance the damage sustained to the bike was minimal. Minor scratches on the front and rear fairing. An incredible getaway considering the speed and nature of the crash! The sliders and engine casings took the impact as designed and spared the expensive items on the bike from harm. I have trusted R&G as a protection company for many years and have never been disappointed. I truly believe R&G products are worth their weight in gold and the images I have provided are testaments to this!

Kind Regards 

Matt
