You need to play the lotto tonight.
It's a miracle you did'nt get run over.

Remember, you don't get many second chances with bikes. Always leave yourself a cushion for the unexpected.
Glad you're okay man.

maybe this is a situation where riding on your feet not your would help. gotta learn to get off the bike in corners. lots to learn. the track is probably a good place to be taught. and i'm sure you will have fun too. keep your chin up and good luck.

to me this sounds like a situation of being stupid on the street, not a suspension or height problem. glad your alright and all but take that chit to the track where you don't have to worry about oil, sand, pot holes and every other hazzard public streets has to offer.

If this is that bumpy portion of the freeway that goes around downtown, there's no reason to be hanging off the bike (especially if there's cars around). It's not that sharp a curve (not sharp at all, actually), but it is "wavy bumpy" and will keep your suspension active enough that you shouldn't be testing the traction on the edges of your tires, and especially if your suspension is not set up properly. You're on a public freeway... who knows what will come up at any given second, and the cagers behind you will likely not be able to stop in time or avoid you, should you spill.

Keep in mind, that not only is your bike's suspension unstable, so are the cagers' vehicles around you. Add that, plus the curve, and don't expect them to be able to panic stop in full control of their vehicles, either.

I drove by & saw your bike down at approx. 7:45-8:00am. A yellow bike. It didn't look busted up so I was hoping the rider (you) were ok. I'm glad to see you are a member here & the story had a happy ending. To the poster above, that actually is a pretty bad turn in 45 if you are above the posted speeds, and most people will come into your lane in that area too. I've always hated driving that part of 45 coming home during the 'drinking' hours.

Glad you are ok man!
