Went out for a ride last night after putting on the blue flame, i went down the street that has a decline and an s curve, its probably only a few hundred feet long and it connects to a major road that goes along the charles river in boston. anyway i run down the road and turn around and head back 5 minutes later. as my way up the short S road, i see a bike on the side of the road parked. goin a bit further i see a guy walking and the back of his forarm looked like hamburger meat. he was wearing a sweat shirt. i pulled over to see if he needed anything. he tells me that a car leaked oil down the road, and i saw an oil slick about 6" wide down the road. he hit it and went down. i offered him my phone and help, he said he was a bit shoken up and that he lived around the corner and was ok. i rode off and thought dam, if i was 5 minutes earlier i could have crashed my 6.
there are so many things to wtch out for on the road. be careful and get good gear.
