Okay, this is the General Sportbike Chat forum, where's the Idiot forum? Actually, now that I think about it, that could be a good forum to add to this site.
Basically haven’t ridden since I crashed my bike in the cascades on Aug 13, but I've had this new toy taunting me now for about a month and a half. Today, it's sunny, roads are dry, and I had a free day to play with so I put a day tag on it and went for a ride.
Riding is an acquired skill so I knew that with some time off, it'd take me some time to get the feel for it again, so I took off through North Langley and followed some nice open twisty roads out to Abbotsford. Stopped, had some food, and headed out on my way again. Ran some more twisty roads, then hopped on the freeway and headed home. Got home, kissed my smiling wife and breastfeeding kid, fixed some walls, worked around the house and decided to go out again. So here I go again, get on the bike ride through the parking lot, left onto street, oops, didn't make it!!
Idiot. All I can think is I must have blipped the throttle and kicked out the back tire, it's the only way we (me and the bike) could end up lying on the ground facing the direction we just came from.

Went inside, kissed my wife and burping son, calmed down, went for a great ride and decided SHIT HAPPENS
