I dunno, the bike is already gone, I'm just waiting for the check. Both my floor board brackets have more than just grinding marks, I scrape those on a fairly regular basis. I know the limits of that bike. I would not have even began to initiate a lean I was so far away from the turn. Something ran out, or someone was coming the other way in my lane. Only two options that make sense to me. Which makes me mad, cause I received a ticket for "failure to maintain control" or some such nonsense blanket statement, when no one was there to witness it.
I dunno guys, no idea what happened. I'm a good rider, took both the MSF basic and advanced courses, I've rode a lot. I've ridden all the wonderful mountainous twisty two lane back highway roads Arkansas has. Only thing that would make me lock up would have been an animal, or someone in my lane. Now the caveat is, I'm sure I was going faster than I was supposed to, but that bike isn't massive, it slows down pretty quick and easily w/o locking up. And drinking wasn't a factor, I left work, arrived at the wedding, and was there long enough for the ceremony, and was headed back to work.
But its is or was, whatever it was. Thanks for the well wishes, and I'm lucky to have been wearing my gear. Just gotta go buy more now! Oh, and a new bike
