Just a reminder

Got out today (48*). Had a good time buzzing around. Rain the last couple of days has washed all the crap away. Went down a long curvy road I ride all the time. Started to slow at the bottom and the whole lower section was covered with small pee size gravel!! It kind of freaked me out and I gently tried to Brake using the front only as I always do. I started to slide so I let off and ran past the stop sign at the bottom and right into the middle of the lower road! Thank GOD no cars right or left! Felt like a JackASS. Thinking about it at home I should have been more aware of the conditions and been ready to use rear brake only (which I never use). Lesson learned. Watch it out there as the weather turns beautiful again
