Yeah, I had a life experience this morning on my way into work. I hit a corner that I normally rail at 50+mph at 45mph and my rear tire broke traction near the apex. I slid the rear out to the right and stood the bike up to apply front brake while there was a slight tank slapper going on. Somehow, I managed to keep the rubber side down and on the road.

I continued on to work, just like I had meant to do that awesome powerslide out of the corner because I had witnesses! Of course, my heart rate and blood pressure were through the roof.

I really need to sell my hooligan bike before I get myself hurt and buy one of them there fancy DS bikes.
