Oh so many wonderful discoveries
the Wisdom Spirit brings to us,
together with the Experience — the child of hard mistakes,
and the Genius — the friend of paradoxes,
and the Chance — the Lord the inventor.
A. S. Pushkin
Many things happend this year. This year I was born as a motorcyclist. At the end of february I was riding a crf230 by myself at a first time in the pacific riding school. Than I got my DL and bought my very first CBR250r.
I started to improve my skills day to day, and in July I put my knee down at a first time. Than was Chiken strip BBQ with Tony Tommy(sorry) and Blair, Track day at pitt meadows....
Today was happened something that could and will happend to everyone who ride a MC. I got a lowside.. Yheah!!! I went to Cypress mountain and at the second nice 180 degree turn I run onto gravel and slide off the road. After falling I couldn't stop to smile, because it was actually fun. I think it seems to be fun for me because I was wearing a leather suite which protects me pretty well.
kids like myself, wear a full gear all the time!!! and you will enjoy riding in any situation.
The stock handlebar on CBR250r couldn't survive in that kind of accident. Owners of this bike, keep in mind that.
What is your favorite place for lowside? (track is obvious, so it doesn't count)
