I've gone down!
You know what they say, " its not if you go down but when you go down." Ha, so with 200 miles on the new 9er i was warming up in a parking lot to go check out the local twisty section, loch raven for you md locals. I have always been better at dragin my knee on the left side than the right. So i was practicin a little bit in a parking lot to get used to the new bike, I was in second gear at probably no more than 30mph doing a right circle. Quicker than a blink of an eye me and the bike were sliding across the pavement. I was in full leathers so I am compleltly unharmed and am more of an advocate for saftey gear now. The bike only has a scrape on the clutch cover, water pump cover, bar end slider. I was very fortunate, the bars didn't even bend. I guess i'm gonna not be so stuborn and order them motovation sliders. As many times as I shoulda have fallen on my old bike canyon carving, I never would have thought it would be on a better handling bike in a parking lot! I'll post pics tomorrow i'm not at my home comp. Atleast i'm in good spirits about it . Stay safe out there everyone
