I learned the hard way the other day to wait until sportbike tires are nice and warm and probably let a few pounds out of them before taking sharper turns when its cold. Luckily my reminder came at an intersection with no oncoming cars. Low-sided making a left turn at only about 15 mph, nothing particularly aggressive, and suddenly FLOP I am sliding on the pavement and the bike (my new WR250X no less) is skidding across the road. It was like I hit an ice patch...except there was no ice or oil on the road away from me, probably a good 20-30 feet. The people in their cars at the red light were horrified and thought that I was about to vaporize into a cloud of dust, but I just got up, walked over and picked the bike up. Seemed like a minor thing, but I was lucky there were no cars behind me. About 25-30 degrees out, and it was on some smoother lighter grey pavement. Fortunately I was in full riding gear and didn't even get a bruise, and the gear itself was barely scuffed even after sliding several feet. The bike just has as scuffed handguard and the rear axle slider is a little shaved. Other than that the bike is fine. Definitely also was a lesson in ATGATT. The gear made it an essentially harmless slide, but had it been summertime, wearing shorts and t-shirt while running a few quick errands, there would have been some bad road rash and a few bruises.
