Almost dropped the big girl this morning on the way to work!
There's one roundabout that has a very tight exit turn. I've ridden it hundreds of times, without a problem, but this morning was little more interesting.
As I approached the intersection, I clicked down through the gears, saw there was no traffic to give way to, and set myself up for the turn. I leaned tight into the turn, hit the apex and rolled on the throttle to power out of it. However, instead of standing up and leaping forward, the bike revved-out and dove tighter into the inside of the corner. She was going to fall!!!
Instinctively, I put my foot down (thank God for Sidi Vertigos!) and brought her back upright. I then quickly hit the clutch & gear lever and got some drive happening again.
I surmised that, with my new boots, I mustn't have clicked the lever down far enough when shifting from 3rd to 2nd, causing the false neutral. Need to be sure that I apply more pressure in future, especially until my boots wear-in a little.
Take it easy out there, folks...
