Edit 10/29/2013: A few people have tried to see this lately and I noticed it was set for password protected. Not sure why I had it that way, here you are.
Well, part of me thinks I should quit while I am still alive. Part of me thinks quiting.. is for quitters.
I love riding. I don’t know what to do.
But practice is needed.. and well maintaining a safe breaking distance.
So another low side crash. this one was at at least 35mph.. maybe 40.
I have to say wearing gear is a must… I would be a lot of road rash if not for the gear. I might post pictures later.
So what happened?
This is copied from my posts on my Ducati Monster Club page.
My big mistake was following to close and not having an escape route… it was on a turn and into the setting sun (going west on 92) I talked to the driver of the car that was right in front of me, and she has no idea why the car in front of her slammed on the brakes. I saw nothing as I was looking far into the turn.. perhaps too far cause it seemed as if I was late noticing that the car in front of me was breaking. I locked up the front brake, and down I went.. luckily did not slide into oncoming traffic.
Ok this is a mess.. but I am done.
