Missed connection (jk) in Kingwood. You lowsided.

Note: it's raining and roads are slick...

So, here I was sitting in my car at a stoplight on Northpark in Kingwood. I saw you riding your naked bike pulling a u-turn from the other direction. You were going smooth and slow until you got back onto the main road and decided you decided to crack the throttle open. I immediately thought, OH , because unfortunately for you, you still had some lean angle. Being wet/slick roads, you lowsided... right before my very eyes. My light just turned green so the car next to me and I were just dumbfounded on what to do. But glad you immediately popped right up and got the bike off the road. You didn't look like you had much injuries and the bike looked ok. So I went on my merry way. Ride safe... Also, wear gear. All you had was a helmet.

I have done something similar in wet conditions, a little too much lean angle on a turn and you have a nice new scratch across your fairing. I wear gear so nothing was injured but my pride.

I was already home when I wrote the post. He had one small scrape on his knee. So I'm sure he was just fine. It was a 5 mph low-side and I made my judgment that no help was needed.

I've been caught in torrential down pours 4 times on the new chopper. I was pretty paranoid coming out of corners and taking off from a dead stop because it has a tremendous amount of torque from a dig. Wet roads are the worst for bikers and inexperienced motorcyclist. Sucks he went down, but glad he bounced up just as quickly. Rather hurt my pride than break my bones! Pretty funny post though!

Shut the up....

You don't like it, don't read it? What exactly was the point of your post? Just to flap your face and say something?
