And i even got it on camera. The only thing that got hurt was my pride.
Well that sucked. Glad you (and the bike apparently) are ok. Those paint lines must have been slick as snot.
Wet paint, treacherous.....dry paint , who the hell knows
Did something like that recently. Nothing but my pride (and butt) hurt.
What amazed me was the number of people that stopped to make sure I was ok.
Not everything that happens on our streets is Road Rage.
You picked that big GS up like it was a toy. Do you lift bro?
Tip over sensor? Does that bike have one? Tip over sensor should have shut off the engine.
WOW, That is crazy !!!! Your speed in that corner was very reasonable for the conditions, I would not have expected that outcome. Thanks for posting, seeing videos like this will make me much more careful when riding in the rain.
That's the way to hop back on your bike and resume like nothing happened. Glad your not hurt.
Hell yeah man! Pick it up and haul ass before someone you know happens by! Glad you're OK.
These are the ones that piss me off. Going almost walking speed being careful and still wash out like that. If that was a sportbike or most other kinds of bikes the damages would have been high. At least cosmetically.
Thanks for posting.
Oh and what tires do you have and what % life remaining?
Black ice? Sounded like it. The bike slid like a curling stone. Loved the recovery.
Not if you have sliders.
Probably a good idea not to restart a bike that quickly after a tip over.
Best to let the oil settle.
Best to push it if you can.
Best to take a good look at the bike before proceeding too.
You never know what might haven damaged.
Even injuries to the rider can not hurt for a little.
That said getting the bike and rider out of the street is important too.
However you should be careful about rushing to pick up the bike and take a good look around you for other
cars to avoid getting hit. When it's cold and raining there are plenty of cars driving round with fogged up windshields.
Sure i lift. My bike a few times a year. Keeps me in shape.
The tyres are TKC 70 with 1000km on them.
Glad you didn't get get hurt. I can tell you have experience because you remembered to put the kickstand down before lifting the bike.
Was it cold enough for ice? Even well worn wet paint wouldn't normally be that slick - a bit of diesel on the road maybe?
The paint they use around here is like ice when it's even a little wet.
Merging back into traffic via the sidewalk and curb!
Glad that you and the bike are just fine. Those 1150s are tanks.
