Two close calls in one ride
Just thought I'd post up about this, keep your head on out there.
First was pulling out of the neighborhood, turned right, barely on the gas. Apparently there was some oil right on the corner because my rear stepped waaaayyy out. I dunno how i saved it but I did. I was actually really calm as it happened, I slowly let the throttle off and took my feet off the pegs to balance. Then when I straightened up the adrenaline rush hit the "holy shit that was close" moment
Me and a buddy from work went to ride a local road with some decent curves, at a pretty spirited pace. Nothing crazy but spirited. We are both laying into this nice long sweeper when a wild piglet runs across the road in front of us, I hit the brake but managed to hold my line and the piglet got across. I almost shit a brick lemme tell you. At least it wasn't a deer.
Watch for them wild hogs in Texas!
