Lowsided my baby tonight :( Slow speed - only going around 30-40 when i went down. Coming south off Queensborough, the first long right corner i was behind a Lexus (one the "cheap" ones too). No traffic ahead of him for a while. He starts braking harder and harder so in the spirit of things so do it. Next thing wham ... front wheel says i want to be in the left lane while the rest of the bike disagrees. Down we go ... Worst thing is, as i'm picking up the bike (which is in the right 1/3 of the lane), people are fucking driving round me like i wasn't there. Props to guy behind me who stopped to make sure everything was ok - even stayed there til i started the bike and rode off. Cheers bud.

Only damage was to the frame slider ( :rockon ), and a small scratch on the fairing. Think i need a new pair of waterproofs as well :tredmill

Good to hear you're alright man. Do doubt at all the roads would be scetchy on a day like today.

Worse part about it was the people who couldn't give a shit and just drove by. That's when a pocket full of pennies come in handy!

do u know the reason why you had fallen? it could be useful to people that are still riding now

was it becuz u suddenly braked? or weather conditions, etc.

really you have to combine the cold roads grease oil gas and leafs on the road with the combination of any emergancy manover or even just stopping can cause a front tire to slip out. so if you are still riding at this time of year BE CAREFUL

Coldish tires. Wet and greasy road. Suspension still in process of being set up. Too hard braking for the conditions. Shit happens.

(Really i was racing between cars ghost rider style to see KDawg :p (joking))

HAH! I knew it! :p Seriously, though, I appreciate the shirts, Skydive! Now I can go around impersonating someone who works for Honda.

glad you are OK dude. I know how people can get. I wiped out on my mtb bike commuting to work. hit black ice in a corner and the same, people just drove around me. smashed my face into the pavement, roadrash. all ok. just shook up. I bet they were nice and warm in their cage to get out and see if I was ok.
