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!

Oh yea its totally my fault, I can admit that. I wasn't thinking I was in a hurry which is not where you wanna be with cold tires and cold ground. Just had a mind lapse.

The bike is all cosmetic... and a cracked case. The frame has some scraps but nothing major. Going to have a closer look tomorrow. I already had rearsets on order and again I was lucky because it wasnt the exhaust side. Last time I had a accident was 2 years ago in feb, but that wasn't my fault I got cut off. So Atomlowe and I decided that no more riding in feb. and no more riding for me until its warm at night hahaha.

Glad to hear you're okay. Brain only works at a certain speed. Prioritizes, and then let's you down. Hope it doesn't cost too much to fix.

That's it - your cut. You're off team gixxer.

Fuck J. I think everyone has to have one cold tire spook in their riding life. Some get away with a serious wiggle some go down.

I could not imagine how loud you swore.
