As close as i have been to rubber up in years !! Rideing to work this morning in that loverly rain, on a road i know extreamly well, I had the choice of sitting in a semi's "jet wash" or going around ( not a car in site so around i went ) Got about 200 or so mtrs in front of the truck and was merging back into the right side of the road, when IT happened ............................ Bloody back wheel broke traction and threw me into a semi tank slapper Something you really cant practice for ?? What did i do beside swear alot !! Cut the throttle , lock in elbows and grip bloody tight with knees on tank, and pray !! NO BRAKES AT ALL and let it ride out . only took about 3 sec's but it seemed like forever ..... then when back under control eased the throttle back on ( remember the semi i just over took ) Now at work on my 3rd coffee and my knees are still alittle wobbly :?
