So it was the second to last day of the year that I had planned on riding, albeit it was December 3rd. It was 63 degrees and raining, the 4th of December was showing 53-55 degrees, perfect day to clean her up and put her away. So while out enjoying myself in the rain with a friend, I got the tires decently warm in the country, enjoying a few turns at a higher rate of speed than I should have, on a slightly bumpier surface than I should have. Got away with it, all was well....Until....I decided to go Johnny Hot Rod over a set of RR tracks I'd completely forgotten to be where they were. Whoops.
1) Shouldn't have been riding to the point where I couldn't have slowed down on normal roads in said conditions.
2) Was lucky to COMPLETELY end up unhurt.
3) These RR tracks are SO close to the turn, would have been a surprise even in the dry, even without the fall there would have been a butt pucker.
Either way I'm fine, bikes fine. Scene of the accident and Pics of damaged bike.
I was northbound, turned eastward to my doom.
I had rain pants on, didn't even tear a hole in them. Or my jacket. Helmet never touched the ground. With as wet as it was I slid along the road almost as fast as my bike. Went from side to stomach to 1/2 leg crossed position to standing/running in about 3.75 seconds lol. No idea how I did it. Hulked the bike up like it was a Power Wheels toy, started it and drove away.
