Exclamation Wooohooo....highside!

[Popped me cherries I guess], My bike highsided around 5 pm, I really need to rest and heal so I can't type much now.

But one rider to another, just wanted to remind everyone if you're still riding, this is the time of the year to be most aware, even if you have to go slow or feel bored. And not only traffic, but definitely watch out for sand, gravels, and slippery stuff on turns or wherever..

Ride Safe, Be Safe. Always Wear All Your Gears, Don't Hit the Starter Switch Without Helmet On.

yikes. I've been riding to work everyday of this week. Mornings are in the 20's and afternoon's are between 30-40. Even wearing full leathers, neck sock, helmet, boots, and 4 layers of shirts. Its still damn cold. But not cold enough to stop riding. I've had some dealings with ice already and they aren't that bad, atleast I'm not hitting them in a curve. I stay at speed limit or flow of traffic as wind chill is pretty damn cold. Once temp gets into the teens, I'm puttin up the gloves.

You should try going out riding the night after it snows and before the plows have come through your neighborhood.. it's great fun. I was sliding my rear tire out at least 45 degrees each way around turns

Not the sort of thing I like hear about or read. Wishing you the best in recovery & when you have the time let us know what happened.

As you know I winterized my three bikes around the end of October for Winter, snow, salt/sand/gravel & two wheeled m/cs do not get along. I guess 59 yrs of riding has told me what best to do for I hate having a dinged in bike come around the time to stop riding or a bit to early in the spring for riding.
