I been riding for around 1 whole years now haha
A few months ago me and a few friends went riding to Lake Berryessa. Nice day warm and sunny. But it just started off bad, should have seen the signs haha.
1. Filled my tank to much, so it kept dying cuz there was no vacuum.
2.My friend got a ticket entering the twisties.
Anyways we were riding and it was ok after the first few incidents. I was following a friend (he was novice). So I decided to pass him and ride with the faster people. Everything was going good until I decided to slow down for my friend, but decided it was not a good place to stop. so I rolled on and tried to catch the faster people.
Then it happened. Long sweeping left turn. I panicked, I felt the pegs scrap a little so it scared me. And I took my eyes off the road (remember to look into the turn!!) and brought her up from the lean angle. Umm the turn continued and I ended up trying to brake in gravel. I ended up lowsiding bike ended up in a Raveen 15 ft down. I ended up sliding and little tumbling down the raveen about half way. My GIRLFRIEND was ok. Ohh I forgot to mention her. But the only thought I had was trying to slow her slid (thank god for riding jacket I had bought her for valentines). She came out with a bad scraped jacket and a couple of bruises. (wear them leathers, they freakin work)
I ended up with Rash on my left forearm (had a broken zipper on the sleeve and the sleeve rolled up.) Rest of the jacket was good shape.
But my kawai zx6 is started right back up 2 days later when I picked her up from the tow yard! What a tough girl!!
