Re: Had a bad feeling about riding tonight..

I was riding in the Carbon Canyon road in Chino Hills and I came to hot on a turn, let go off the throttle out of panic. I seen the dirt on the side I knew that's where I was going to end up. I tried leaning the bike up and braking but unfortunately it was too late. Bike hit and launched off I probably caught some air too
What a mess..

Only picture I took but Ill take some more later when I see the bike again but from what I seen on the bike at night was that the tail side broke, the right side all messed up, throttle is stuck and the front tire went flat


I had a bad feeling all day about riding I believe I had a dream the night before where I was sliding down the highway


So many mistakes I made though
I understand I should always be smooth with the throttle throughout the turn and look where you wanna go
But I panic and failed

Glad to hear you're alright. Sounds like you realize some of the causes for your crash. Further rider training is definitely a must.

Ever consider a more beginner friendly bike?

Re: Had a bad feeling about riding tonight..

Glad to see that you're alright.

I NEVER ride when I've "got a bad feeling".

I even had a day when I was ON the bike and ready to go to work... my boy (2 yrs old at the time) ran out the front door and said "daddy... NO WHITE BIKE!, take duh truck today". I got off my bike, took off my gear and drove to work. On my way to work... I got "lightly" rearended and later,almost got tboned by some dumb bish who ran a red light because she was texting. Had I been on the bike, the driver that reareded me may not have seen me at all and/or I wouldnt have taken so long to pull away from the green light and had enough time to watch the girl blow through a red light while texting. I probably wouldn't be here to tell you that its good that you're still around.

Listen to the subtle hints man. Most times they won't let you down.

Good luck with the rebuild.

Glad you're alright. Bike can be fixed.
