Re: Close call
Yeah, bad reflexes to jam the rear brake... We all do this at least once. It happened to me last year, but in a straight (car was beside me, he didn't saw me and changed lane) so I managed to control the back, but I would have probably ended up in a ditch if that had happened in a curve.
What I've learn : Don't stay in the blind spot of other vehicules, because drivers are dumb as hell.
Glad you're lucky though, it could have been really bad.
Current bike : Z1000
Shortened oem slip-on, K&N filter and PC3, rizoma levers, sprocket kit
Old bike : YZF-R6
MJS shorty slip-on, K&N filter
why when i put the straight pipe on a i rev it to like 5 or greater RPM the bike turns off??
