Insert nonsense here
Ok guys I have a bit of an issue that i think you can help me with. My first bike was a 1997 CBR F3 years ago. I had dropped it a few times (not laid it down) being my first bike and all. Not long before i sold it though, i was pulling into my yard (all grass with some dirt spots) like i always do at around 10 mph, when all of a sudden the front end hit a loose patch of dirt and the bike slipped out from under me. I went off the bike and flipped once or twice as the bike slammed on its side and slid a short bit. Messed up my brand new paint and all! lol. Anyhow, to the point. Ever since then i FREAK when i am on the street riding coming into any kind of turn...fast or slow...with any form of loose dirt or gravel. To the point where i try to stand the bike up to ride straight through it. This has almost caused me to wreck or run off the road a few times. The CBR incident happened over a year ago and it's still in my mind. Should I just calm down and ride through it, or are my fears well founded? I just feel like the bike will slip from under me if i put and kind of angle on the bike through loose stuff. I'm super confident through high speed turns on clean pavement though.
