Ok so i was on the way to this party last night just to drop by and say "hi" to a few peeps. Anyway, they live in a pretty hilly area and just before the house there is a big hill which turns to the right. Anyway what happened was i thought "great, an up hill turn!" so i layed on some gas, put a bit of lean in and looked where i wanted to go, as far as i could. Suddenly the bike goes nuts! i momentarily lose traction a few times but manage to keep steady throttle control and reduce my lean and then it goes back to normal. What happened i hear you ask? I ran into some shitty potholed road which i did not see. Why did i not see it? It was pitch black (no street lights) and it was an up hill banking turn, the lights didnt go far enough up the hill. Now this is my theory on what i should have done. Firstly, high beam to increase vision and more so follow the headlights? Thats the only way i would have seen it. Also i should have defintly decreased my speed (i wasnt "speeding" anyway but prob going to fast for the road conditions) because if you cannot stop in the distance you can clearly see, your going to fast. What i know i did right. I made sure i had plenty of room to the side to reduce lean angle if needed which is what happened and i did not hit the brakes, imagine all that weight hitting the front through the pothole Anyway i know this was a pretty long post but I thought I would share this experience so hopefully it would prevent anyone else going through a similar situation cause honestly it really scared me! Thanks for reading!
