1st time down

I gotta say that for my first time down, it wasn't so bad . I was one of the lucky ones that didn't highside the first time down .

It was my fault and have no one to blame other than myself . Went to switch lanes and cut back into the lane when my rear tire slipped from under me. I tumbled a few times and caught myself watching my bike sliding instead of watching the cars behind/beside me. Luckily no major injuries, some bruising to the hip is most injuries ive found. We'll see how i turnout tomorrow morning. I've already called into work saying i wont be there .

Sorry to hear that. Glad you are ok. Is the bike in bad shape?

The thought of going down in traffic always freaks me out. Also funny how you watch your baby first before yourself.

Glad to hear you fared well. Get back on as soon as possible- the longer you wait after that first get-off, the harder it is to get comfortable again.

forgot to say; if anyone has any left side stator cover / left fairing / right mirror / or a windscreen for an 03' 600rr that they want/need to get rid of, let me know. That is the only damage to my bike that i've noticed. Hopefully nothing other than that. I'll figure out the rest of the damage tomorrow when i take my bike apart.

Glad you're ok Fredo, that's the most important thing. Accidents happen that's why we wear our gear.

And if you do wanna keep it under wraps you can have a mod delete this thread.

+ 1 on how the tire slipped. You might need better tires.

glad your ok man. Never going down is a bit rare, IMO it's just part of riding. Sounds like you were being smart and wearing gear. Like someone else already said, get back on the horse ASAP if your gonna keep riding.

I'm not sure... Cold tire, center white line, wet spot, new back tire (100 miles)... those are the only things that could have caused it, that i can think of
