God I feel stupid.... of all the things Ive done I cant believe I lowsided tonight. But it was a perfect formula for a crash. I had a day permit good until midnight.... and it was 1130 so I thought shit I better go home. So I leave and ride down a few blocks and stop at the intersection. I pull out lean over give some gas.... oh shit the back starts to slide..... and boom down shes goes. I didn't even give it alot of gas either! I almost caught it but it slide out to far. I've gotten on the gas harder than that before and its never went out so it had to be the cold tires. I feel stupid cuz I wasn't thinking and I shouldn't have been riding anyways its like 0 degrees. In the end I guess Im lucky... minor damage, low speed, Im ok, no traffic, it is the perfect crash. I just feel stupid though cuz I wasnt thinking about my tires I was thinking about making it home on time.
Im fine, my hip is swore and my knee is scrapped but no blood was drawn. Thank god for gear! So in summary..... 1000cc + cold tires + in a hurry + not in the right frame of mind = crash!
