I was riding to work this morning and had a close call.
I was going through a sweeping left turn with a car on each side of me. As i rolled onto the throttle my rear tire crossed a painted line and i did a huge drift. As my knee hit the ground (I was wearing jeans), i pointed the bars to the right and let off the throttle. Then, the bike tried to high side me over the top. I held on and it bucked a couple of times until it straightened out. Somehow i did all of this between two cars in the middle of a turn.
That's about as close as i've ever been to going down. And, i was wondering what are some other stories of almost going down.
They say that there are only two kinds of riders: the kind that have gone down, and the kind that havent gone down yet.
