The scariest thing happened to me tonight. I had my first experience of a tankslapper at over 120 Km/h and saw my life flash before my eyes. I was going up burnaby mountain on gaglardi way doing a right sweeper (in a lean) when i crossed a band of water on the road. I knew that the water would be there and have crossed it many times before, you lose traction for a split second and regain again. This time was different though when i slid out of the water my bike caught traction and began a tank slapper. It jerked so violently that both my legs flew off of the pegs. I remember looking down the road and seeing just a blur since everything was shaking so fast. My rear right leg dented my rear can as it was flailing around. It happened so fast but i was still able to think about so many things. I first thought about what the magazine article i once read said "keep on throttle, loosen up your body and don't fight it". Just as i thought i was about to low side it, everything stabalized and i was riding again, my feet instictivly flew back onto the pegs and i was now cruising at about 95 km/h. My nuts hurt and my left shin above my boots is bruised from hitting the left peg. I'm lucky to be here to post this. Sorry for such a long post as i thought i would share this with all of you.
