What it feels like when both tires are sliding...

FREAKING AWESOME!!! Scary as , but awesome.

And no, I wasn't doing some crazy sliding like Casey Stoner or something on a track. It was just some gravel but it was intense.

I just got done playing around Racer's Road. It was my first time there and I got a little lost. Anyway I'm on the feeder of I10 and the road is nothing but fine gravel. I had no idea how thick it was until I was in the middle of it. I got a little nervous. Then I just kinda moved the bike left and right to see what kind of traction I had. It was shaky at best but I figured it was good enough to go straight. I'm going about 65 and I see a turn coming up. Nothing terribly sharp, just a normal curve you would see on a feeder road. I wanted to hit the turn at about 35 considering the gravel. The gravel had a different idea. I start turning and the whole bike feels like it's on a conveyer belt going to the outside of the corner. It was a really cool feeling but scary as because I have never laid down my bike and didn't want to. I didn't make any sudden movements, kept the throttle pretty steady as I let off. The turn was to the right and I was countersteering left which kept the bike at just the right angle to keep sliding to a stop. It was fun.

Here's the location,-95.989351&daddr=&hl=en&geocode=&mra=mi&mrsp=0&sz=15&sll=29.780432,-95.989437&sspn=0.021008,0.038581&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=15

Cliff notes
Hit a load of gravel
Remembered not to panic
Bike still doesn't have a scratch on it
