Nice save One of the guys riding a 650r on Saturday hit that same bump while WOT, unfortunately for him, he didn't keep it upright...I could see his eyes wide open as 4 bikes split like bandits avoiding him and the bike.

I didn't get to meet you, but now I can put a bike with a screen name. You were looking much better by days end on Sunday.

That's perfect, according to Keith Code in Twist of the Wrist 2. I hope I have the good sense to do the same if it ever happens to me.

That is NOT fun!!!!

Happened to me a few weeks ago, Helena was right behind me she saw it all go down. I was getting on to the freeway and forgot my damper wasn't set high and I just about got a tank slapper from a second gear full throttle twist. NO BS.

Riding a first gen 10R with no steering damper is suicide I ride with mine at the track on the highest setting. I of course get wobble coming on to the front straight at TWS (Texas World Speedway) but who doesn't?
