lol I've only had that happen once... It was my 3rd time ever falling off a bike (on the track).

I was at Barber, using some warmers I just bought off a buddy. They worked great the first couple sessions, but on the 3rd session, I was running because and didn't check them, and paid for it.

I got to T5 and bam... There I go, sliding across the asphalt. lol I pick it up, get it to the wall, pull off a glove, feel the tire and it was like COLD. Not even close to being warm...

UGH its the worst!!!!! you made it to turn 5 lol I made it to turn 3 lmao , I was literally on the track for 10 seconds before I was introduced to the pavement. I was so pissed not because my bike was scared up but because my shifter lever broke off inhibiting me to continue. I had probally the best session ever 45 min prior so I jumped on all pumper and in my zone and 15 seconds later I'm sliding on the ground thinking to myself "wtf am I doing down here lol".

Good call on checking the temp of your tires before your sessions , grab one of those pyrometers that look like a laser pointer
