i came close one time when i was out near the forest... went into a turn kinda hot, got hit by a stiff 30-40 gust and i was wiggling through the corner but made it.
We as riders know the risks we take everytime we put that kickstand up and twist the throttle.

I had something similar happen on 362, heading down to Brookshire - flat terrain with no protection from the wind. While I was in the middle of a turn, I got hit with a hard gust of wind that pushed me farther over. That threw my line way off and it felt like I was about to lowside it.

The last trackday at MSRH it was so windy I think it was Larry that said,"It's so windy I'm dragging a knee on the straights"

Once in a tropical storm I was blown slowly across the lanes in the wind.

The other fun was on the new orleans lakefront leaned over round a turn into the wind and the wind all of a sudden stopped. Kind of spooked me.
