now that I read your post, I had one almost just like this when we got hit with the first couple of good cold days last year. It was extremely cold outside and as I was pulling out and into the street, wheel slipped under thanks to me being a dumbass and driving like it wasn’t cold, pulled it out but managed to semi low side it on the flip side.

I ended on my back sliding helmet back /jacket shoulder took a hard knock. Helmet gone and I might say best 250 that I've spent (now go-kart helmet), and even better Arai replacement. I was wearing all gear but jeans. I didn’t have a single scratch/bruise.

Had to drive it home without a front brake and mirror. But nothing else since I was probably under 25.

Funny thing is that probably about an hour earlier I was laughing at a friend for not remembering to warm up. It made me remember to be safer during winter, and it was a cheap reminder all things considered.

Man my heart jumped when I got to the intersection and saw you there. It is a very dangerous place to go down. I was just glad to see that you were ok.

I was even scared escorting you back into the parking lot 'cause I usually take that corner in my car well over the recommended limit.

Really sorry ya went down , but glad you're OK. At least you were wearing your gear. It doesn't matter who you are, or how good a rider you are , anyone can go down. There was a large crowd of bikes pulled in at pp2 most in less than full gear-hopefully this'll make 'em think again before leaving the house in just a helmet. I've got an extra helmet you can borrow till ya get another if ya need it.

Well it was a nice night tonight, so a few friends and I decided to meet at StarBucks(PP2) and BS for a while. Finally right after 11 we decided it was about time to head out, which means coooold tires. I took a right out onto the feeder road, started straightening up and started to give it a little gas. No problem, I've given it more gas on cold tires without so much as a slip. . . but this time was different. The rear tire started sliding pretty far out, so I ust counter-steered and stayed right where I was at on the throttle hoping/expecting to just ride it out, pull over, and . Anyways, the tire caught traction and immediatly stood straight up and threw me off. Luckily I was doing MAYBE 25mph, so the bike just slid instead of flipping. All the left side fairings and the case cover are trashed, and my ego took a hit. The X-11 did it's job well, but is obviously useless now. Jacket has some abrasions, but still good. Gloves and boots are perfect. Luckily no cars were behind me, and the only damage to myself is a small quarter size baby abrasion on my left hip.

While I'm not happy with the way things went tonight, I realize I could have been MUCH worse off, so I'm thankful for that.

glad you're okay but...



I don't wanna hear about my incident at the gas station ANYMORE!


and it couldve turned out way worse! You're very lucky! We're all thankful to still have you around

I think Hughes40 has a hard on for me. . . this is the 2nd old thread of mine he's bumped today.



To the rest of you that didn't catch on(you too Eric and Amber) I'm buying each of your ignorant a calender and I'll PERSONALLY teach you how to use them correctly. The concept of time obviously eludes all of you.
