"Your eyes direct you to the scene of the crash." Hard to tell with the camera mounted ahead, but it looks at first blush like "target fixation" where you look at the side of the road and think, "Oh shit, I'm not going to make it."
The suggested remedy is "Keep riding." Force your vision ahead and to the apex or exit point of the turn and let the amazing hand/eye machinery connected to your brain do it's thing.
Next, your line looks very "sloppy." It doesn't look like you pick an apex and exit point and try to hit them - you just go with the flow. Look ahead, decide on a line, and hit that line. You don't have to be aggresive and use the whole road surface - you just need a Plan A - so you'll know if you are on Plan B.
Finally, about your steed. Here's your front tire section compared to a V-Strom.
And here's the V-Strom compared to a sport touring OEM front on an SV.
And here's the difference between a stock SV tire and a high performance tire.
Guess which one works the best going fast on asphalt? Worst?
