Same mistake twice

Discussion in 'Your Near Misses - A Place to Vent' started by AD-HUI, May 27, 2014.

  1. It started out on the 2/7/2013. Just about a month after I picked up my bike and got my license. Just heading to the shops I had a real scare (see video). After that incident, I could never really figure out the mistake I made. I evaluated and concluded that I must have slid on the zebra crossing painted line.

    After several months of riding, on the 20/11/2013. I had to pass that same area again, this time not so lucky. I tried to avoid the same mistake and waited till I was well clear of the painted line and then turned in. Went down without notice and slid down the road (uphill, see attached pictures). The bike did take a hit. Mirrors, rear brake were bent and broken. Exhaust was slightly scuffed and bar ends were scratched. (Was really lucky that no fairing was damaged).



    Weeks after, I managed to figure out the "cause of the accident".

    Anyone care to guess?
  2. Diesel spill?
  3. Change in Tarmac?
  4. heroin intake?

  15. If it's anything like his thread, OP got distracted
  16. Correct
  17. = not paying attention?
  18. When it changes to the dark bits it drops to a off camber + that small bump in the surface change and it was enough to throw the rear tyre out of balance on a saussage roll of a tyre of the 250.. =D

    Pretty silly of me to ask a question on NR and expect 100% genuine answers. hahaha
