almost busted my @$$ today...

going back to work from lunch break at home.

im on the 59 feeder south, and take the u-turn under the overpass to get on the north feeder. i take this u-turn 1-2 times a day. generally check in front and to my left for oncoming traffic, and if its clear i gas it out of the corner pretty good, with moderate lean.

well while checking for traffic i wasnt looking in front of me/to my left i.e where i was going... (der?), and at the last second noticed the street looked very dark and liquidy. there must have been 5-10 gallons of oil on the road coming out of that u-turn!!!!

now im not afraid of leaning, but i like to have some speed and traction to back it up, i didnt have either! as the back end started to slip out to the right, i was leaned about 40 degrees! i quickly goosed the throttle a little bit, turned the bars, and shifted my weight to compensate. well i was compensating for the slip out of nowhere, but not the oil, so i overcompensated and the rear went out to the left, leaning me about 30 degrees in the other direction...talk about pucker factor! i compensated again with another counter lean and touch of throttle, and got out of the goo and stabilized. (whew!) the folks in the cars behind me must have got a good show...

the second the rear first came out the whole accident flashed before my eyes...i saw myself getting some rash, having to pick the bike up, getting back to work with elbows, etc...but that didnt happen,(thankfully)

cripes. just had to share. i need to get off this two wheeled tugboat, and back onto a "good" bike. i miss having a ride whos suspension did more than keep the engine from scraping the road...

aiight over and out, breaker. wear your gear, bros $ sis's

That happened to me the other day. The rear end locked up when I was getting ready to make a right hand turn. I passed by that spot on the way out and still did not see what the was so slick. There is alot to be said for being ready issues like that. It is called experience...good job.

Are you really going to start with the name calling just because I was giving him props for handling an adverse situation well? There is a lot to be said for having the experience to handle situations like that. Sorry if you took offense to the post...maybe if you felt like you had the experience you would not have taken umbrage to it.

glad you made it out of that one.. elbows and crashed bike.. not a good way to finish lunch... speaking of finishing lunch.. and oil on the road.. 5 years ago.. the city trash service.. picked up the trash behind Jack in the Box. but instead of the dumpster.. they picked up the used oil bin in the back of the store.. when i came down the road.. in my car. not my bike and hit the oil.. i skidded all over the road.. i could see the oil slick down the street for about 10 or more blocks till he turned off... later that day i saw someone had sanded the street.. just becareful guys.. you never know where its coming at you from..

correction.. not the oil bin.. someone had dumped the used oil in the dumpster instead of the oil bin.. thats how it got picked up in the garbage truck and onto the road.
