Target Fixation Brings Down A Z750 Rider At Karak 0

This is my usual route for my weekend therapy. Arguably one of the safest route if you ride within your limits but deadly if you ride like MotoGP. However, if you do not have enough mileage in your riding experience, this route can be very nerve recking especially the section after the tunnel (KL Bound). A rookie can easily make a mistake at this section.

A video posted on 13th July 2019 taken from his action camera managed to record a Z750 apparently overshot the turn. However, it is more like target fixation and not overshot; a very common problem even for an experienced rider. The rider is on his brake, bike straightens and he locked on the target, THE WALL. However, no death in the video. Just serious damage to ego and maybe shrunk his balls. But the rider is A-OK!

Salute bro Sketsa Rider for stopping and help not to forget another rider who rode the opposite way to the beginning of the turn to warn oncoming traffic and it takes big balls to do that. And awesome JPJ boys for blocking the entire traffic.

The best part, listen carefully when he sent voicemail; he asked his group to proceed and he stayed to help further. Bravo!

Remember, always look at the direction you would like to go, the bike will follow. If in doubt, hit the throttle.

Born in school of petrol heads, raised practically drinking gasoline and smoked by the burning tires. Left the 4 wheels and took up 2 wheels as a direct result from mid age crisis. It's little crazy but am happy about it.
