Talking Slippery When Wet

((Not just a Bon Jovi album!))

I was out riding on Saturday and slid on some wet leaves in a turn. Lemme tell ya, it was like hitting ice! Be careful out there!

Did anyone ride in the wind we had today? I think it got up to 25 mph!!

i didnt hit leaves, but some dude on the highway on friday night like had a mattress or somethin and some other stuff fly outta the back of his truck, and people were like swervin and i just ducked down and took the hit, i thought i was goin down but i stayed up surprisingly. scratched up my new bike though...cause i got hit by sumthin pretty hard and ran over something else, have NO clue what the stuff was, but i feel lucky i stayed up!

A guy on another forum last week was talking about his ride near his home in Colorodo Springs. Said he got scared when he was riding in a straight line on the highway, and the wind gusted so hard his peg touched down when he corrected for it!! Said it nearly blew him off the road.

Said that later on the news they were talking about gusts up to 80 mph!
