Well...had an interesting thing happen late last night. Was riding my friends newly purchased Across back to her place (she hasn't got her Ls yet) when some guy turned out of a side street on a Goldwing without stopping and startled me a fair bit. With parked cars meaning space was tight, no time to stop and not enough swerving room thanks to oncoming traffic, figured I'd make a quick exit into a side street on the other side of the road. So I hook it in at a rate of knots and bugger me if I didn't get the knee down. Rubbed me bloody Draggins a bit and everything. My friend was behind me and she reckoned I looked "like Rossi in a sumo suit" which I guess is all I can hope for. Now I always thought there was some trick to it but I didn't do anything different to normal other then get down a little lower. Wasn't brave enough to try it again on someone elses bike but was wondering whether it really is just a matter of having the genital fortitude as I haven't even been close before.
