    Looks like TrashCan is a Tennessee Volunteer like me.

    We've all had to be a little tougher the last few years.:evil

    Gear....what a pain to buy and use; until you need it. Glad the get off didn't hurt you much.

    Yeah, I don't really mind putting on ATGATT.

    Got up, rode the bike home, settled with insurance, ordered parts and ready to go again.

    I am curious, If the back end slides out on a left hand curve wouldn't you lowside to the left, and have your left side sustain the damage? Or did you highside?

    I really don't think I was ever close to a left low side.

    What I can tell you, the bike was very upright when the rear slid out.
    The bike was at a 45 degrees to the left before we came back around to the right.

    Sounds like some of you ff's need to trade in your two wheelers for a car.

    Suing because of a natural road condition that caused a lack of traction? Give me a break.

    A road paved with tarmac gets polished due to tires rolling on it, as well as oil drips, bird shits, and pollen/fruit falling out of trees etcetera. Add a little dew and throttle or brake and bam..

    We need legislation to facilitate the installation of many signs warning of squirrel crossings and leaves in roadway, pretty soon we'll be suing because we low-sided into a post warning of pinecones in the road.

    Sign, sign, everywhere a sign...


    Good you were able to ride on TC.
