In a recent post we shown you how a motorcycle highside can end with the rider being thrown over a guardrail and we now came across a video showing another rider’s interaction with a guardrail, this time as a result of shifting error.

Apparently, this rider had a few successful runs on his Honda CBR600RR, but he then downshifts too late going into a turn. The rider attempts to brake but ends up in the guardrail after his front wheel locks up.

I wouldn’t really say that it is completely his fault. Sometimes, technical stuffs do go loco with this machines. Lucky for him he wasn’t on such a high speed no more.
