*There’s a postscript to this story that has nothing to do with focus, but furthers my belief that motorcycle people are the best people. The kid who crashed our R6 was distraught and frustrated. He had just landed a job as a car technician and had saved his money to attend YCRS. Crashing a school bike is less expensive than crashing your own bike (thanks to Yamaha parts costs and our low hourly labor charge), but it’s still money. He was 19, employed, humble, polite…but not rich.
