DOWN!!!

It finally happened!!! My baby and I finally did some concrete licking last night!!!:BangHead: On Main approaching a light it changes to amber - I decide to gun it but at the last minute see a cop so I go for the breaks to stop at the red versus get ANOTHER ticket! WIPEOUT!!! MOther****ing****bitchslappingwhoresluttingcockmun chingBASTARD!!! I get up and the cop actually gets out to help. I get back up look behind me and there is a trail (very thin) of sand//gravel running about 6-8 feet! And there you have it my first fall and I am raging.

Bike is remarkably ok, scratches on the plastic and that's it! Maybe $300 - $400 of cosmetics. All bars and levers are good, mirror didn't even crack - in fact I didn't even rip my jeans, WTF I can't even get a decent crash!!! This feels like I just came off my effing BMX at 9 years old. What a load of PISH! So clothes are good, Helmet nothing, bike little scrathed up and ego devastated!!!

This is effing !!!!

Man this happened so fast but I want to say the tail lost it first (because I always use the back probably harder than most riders) then feeling it loose tracktion I probably pulled harder on the front to offset the "oh " feeling and thats when the front side gave in!

how can you prevent it from happening again?

GET ABS - **** off!

J/K I knew this would come up from somebody - my **** ups were the following:

1) too fast for road type
2) did not read the upcoming road appropriately for hazards
3) did not anticipate a traffic light change
4) tires were cold
5) WASN"T IN HUMMER
