I had a cold tire HIGH SIDE...which wasn't fun at all. Plus, I had a brand new tire, and the roads on base are blacktop, but have a bit more gravel in the mixture than any m/c'ist would care for. So, brand new tire, cold pavement, cold tire, plus not the best road in the world makes for a disaster waiting to happen. I am still nervous about leaning the bike over now. Before my accident, I would shred the turns without a care in the world. Nothing like a rider that hasn't been humbled by going down. I have much much much more respect for these machines now than I did.
