I know why I crashed at Snetterton. The melted rubber and marbles on the edges of my tyres after session 2 was ridiculous. I never photographed it at the time. However, let that cool and then go back out on track: the moment you start to lean on the first corner it's like ice and you're down. I should have clocked the implications of that amount of tyre edge debris and been super extra cautious until I'd scrubbed it off after 1 or 2 laps. The cold tyre just compounded this issue.
I ride harder than that or of lay-by's on cold tyres on the road without issue, however I'm not carrying melted, cooled marbles on the edges, never no grip issues.
I've got most the bits for the bike. It got off lightly, just a slide. Looking forward to getting back out there, older and wiser I hope....
