And the tires on it were installed in 2009.... 2 years before your bike existed.

Not sure on that one; thought they came with OG qualifiers? That's what I got on my S when I get her new on 08.
It could of been me mind ****ing myself but those tire really did suck and didn't inspire much confidence at all, and this was before I read all these post about them being garbage.

Not even 99%? Youre goin 100% on me?

This is definitely a possibility.. If I made an obvious mistake I would accept it and learn from it. I just dont see where I made a mistake though. Especially since I hit this U turn every time I ride to work and most other times I ride. I'll never know for sure exactly what happened. But I have moved on and I'm continuing to learn and build confidence. Not even 99.9%?

don't get me wrong; i'm trying to get your attention, not trying to be a total dick. inexperience put you on your ass. happens to a lot of us.

yes, stock tires suck, but not enough to ever put you in harms way on the street. learn from this. be more careful. throttle control will help. you'll see...
