rider down

Across from Motorcycles Unlimited. Little girl on a sv650 jumped the curb into oncoming traffic. She was a little shaken up but ok. Just checking to see if she was feeling better and was on the board. She just started riding and learned the hard way, 1960 is not the place to do it.

. I would have rather gone down on the curb than rode into oncoming traffic on 1960.

Hope she's okay.

That part of 1960 sucks, but nowhere as bad as the Willowbrook area...you're just asking for death in that place.

Yea I only go across 1960 to get to Motorcycles Unlimited. Kuykendahl to cypress landing is my route. I think Patrick was the one who told me to go that way too.

So was she hott?

she walked away but was scared to even sit back on the bike. Her boyfriend was behind her when she hit the ground and he to wanted to have nothing to do with the bike. I told her, well you are going to be makiing the payments on it so you might as well ride it. The bike was fine other than a little road rash, so I rode it to four wheel parts and parked it for her. They had some one come and ride it home them.

Bummer! The first time I went down was the best thing that happened to me because prior to it I was constantly worried. It was affecting my ability to relax and enjoy riding but after I went down and was fine, I accepted it and it doesn't consume my mind and affect my concentration.
