Not cool, but it has happened to me. Hwy 93 from Phx to LV can be real bitch sometimes. Don't think they expected me to make room as much as were too stupid to judge speed and distance.

'93 XRL was my first bike. Not too much power to overwhelm a new rider and not much damage from those inevitable drops.
