I have been on the same situation many times before and what has helped me a lot is to get on the throttle a bit more than usual and get out of the turbulence as fast as i can

Today was a little tricky ride with wet roads and gusty winds.....Umayr was briefed as of course riding in his ability regarding speeds and weather conditions....
We made a pass on 1489 at a relaxed pace to check the status of the road, it was 50% dry....
After turning around,jimmy HP4,Lucar and myself went back as a more BORC style riding and Cornerjunkie,1198 rider and Fox351 stayed with omayr to make sure he was fine and also monitor his abilities.....he happens to everyone but somehow he ended up in the ditch.....When we came back he was already up ,a little shaken....but ok.
I believe he panicked with some strong gust of winds in the turn and after an 18 wheelers and went off.
Well i will add few pics in the next post....he still had a smile considering the pain and acted as a BORC potential in the future with more experience...
For once that we take along an SDRC rider.....he is coming back with a broken ride ....

. I just saw this. Glad he is still posting. happens.
That's why I choose the place, pace, position and sometimes people I ride with to minimize the dangers... There are factors that can be controlled and some not.

wrong place, wrong time.

and no "machoism" or whatever. I've been on these rides before and I've met riders that are faster than me. I know exactly what youre talking about and yes I have had it happen to me before, I have fell for it before. but I've gotten over it and have seen other riders go down because of it. you really dont understand how calm i was during the turn.

it's not about your skills as much as it is about confronting situations with the elements as you ride.
we all have had those times when it's not us, it's "the devil" inside telling us to twist the throttle, to push ourselves more, or just that over confidence that we're planted on the road by our 2 wheels and underestimate situations or risks coming our way.

Glad everyone is okay. I hope this doesn't drastically change the way you determine who's allowed to participate in your rides. I'd like to ride with y'all at least once, but if y'all start instituting obstacle challenges or feats of strength, I don't think it'll happen.

Come with us on a Sunday ride. It will be noob friendly. After participating in a few sunday rides and evaluating you, you should then be able to come on smaller rides. This should have been done in this situation. I had a feeling about this one.

You should post up a ride with your intent..

That makes more sense, I appreciate the advice.. I suppose if I was more in a slightly "aggressive" mind set I probably would have done this. but I was taking it easy and trying to be more cautious. I messed up and started slowing down the truck, to pass.

Care to elaborate ? I had a feeling about ninja chick too, but, she was taking it easy and I thought I was probably being paranoid (no drugs involved )..
But, the location where she crashed was on a straight road with a very slight bend.

i have ridden with Umayrkaleem a few times and he has a lot to learn before going on a small group ride setting where most riders are far more experienced than him.

On the other hand, our Sunday rides are a lot more noob friendly just because we always have a separate group for those who are just learning and enjoy a more relaxed pace. If there are no volunteers, i am usually leading the second group and at the pace that we go, no one really gets left behind.

Maybe we should implement a rotation system for sweepers and second group leaders

Newer rider and Fast group = No good

As for your incident. I believe their was nothing that could have been done to avoid the situation. I never attend your rides but from my understanding they are very noob friendly. This is exactly how our sunday rides are. Now when you put me, carlos, jimmy, eric, and frank, lucar together the pace is not the same. If you throw a new rider in that mix their is something bound to happen.

well i cannot do babysitting....it is posted on the ride,this one was not noob friendly......i think he was riding at his pace and was fine,just inexperienced with tricky weather conditions like today....wet and windy....its called BORC favorite conditions....
Sorry jimrad to return one of your SDRC member in not so good conditions....i think the SDRC should evaluate their members and give a us a listing of experienced levels
i was warned last night by Barryreynoldts by the way abouit Umayr on our rides but i think he will learn a lot from today ride and will evaluate the danger better in the future.....he is 21 and somehow you night have to go thru this......he is ok and did not complain , good attitude under pain....

dude..... you left out Carlos

Yes, that is why we have our regular SMR and the Big Boys Sunday Ride, which is by invitations only and off public forums. Bad weather and a huge gap in rider's skill will always have bad consequences.

Oh, now I get the other thread.

Man, I don't hang out here enough any more.

Glad you're ok, Umar. If your bike is ride-able and only cosmetics, may I suggest attempting a track day on it.

You can do it for 50% on the 9th...
