I was very lucky. We were hitting lots of big sweeping turns wide open. It must have been hit by a rock in the last 140+ish turn. We hit straight road and we all slowed down for a fork in the road and to let the group catch up. I was sliding straight rather than turning. I decided straight was best at that point. Luckily straight was an option. The front was sliding and the rear was locking up and sliding with the slightest lever pressure. I worked the brakes very carefully till I stopped. I was glad I was with the group I was with. They fixed my leak and filled my radiator. I was too in the head to mess with it at the time. I was amazed I stayed up and I can only imagine what would have happened if we had hit one more high speed turn. Fayetteville (sp)

Man yeah I can't quite compair to that but i think when you experience something like that type of situation that its makes you better aware of what you need to do with the bike in a hairy situation.

One wild ride today.

Practice helps. The more it happens the better you get at it. My bike breaks loos on the big end of the drag strip sometimes. The back end gets loose at 130 ish and smokes the tire. It's not a big deal anymore. I'm talking the rear out of line enough that you can see me counter steering. You have to sleep it spinning till you straighten out. You can't let it hook up when you're that sideways or you're going over I have shots of the rear getting sideways and smoking. Cool shots

Yeah i bet so and you aren't kidding about getting that thing straightened out before you let if hook. Now that will send you into acrobatics.

do you park the bike outside? is it possible that maybe the recent cold spats we've been having caused the belt to freeze up at the neck and cracked it, or maybe phase change when going from icy-ish to warm cause it to stress.

looks like a very common issue though, good save. but for a 2007 seems a little odd. (gonna check my 08's hoses next TCLOCS)

Yes its parked outside under a carport which wouldn't make a difference but it hasn't been cold enough to freeze anti-freeze, which i keep in it during the winter time and drain n replace with just distilled water and water wetter.
