Great refresher. Last night I had a very rare occurance of another driver (dingbat 17 year old girl) move into my lane aggressively...led to a big rear wheel lockup and her doing it again in another 100 yards. Knowing she had to do it given the circumstances she was facing saved my ass...

Thanks for the refresher!

In my experience, the bike rarely crashes. The RIDER crashes and takes the bike with him. Most modern bikes corner safely at much higher speeds than the guy in the saddle can. Take the time and do the work to really learn a bike and how it works at it's extremes. And that means at the track.

A case of dumb here. Did not know my own road. The Essic / Wyo intersection is on both the outbound and return loop of my favorite ride. I was having a lovely time honking around this exemplary bend on Wyo when I saw the Essic sign too late. Should have stayed in the corner. I didn't. Tried to make the turn. Was in gravel immediately. Could not use the front brake because of the gravel. Dragged the rear tire for 70 feet on the pavement, then 40 feet off road which thankfully featured only a shallow drainage channel and dry loamy soil free of trees. Told my wife that I had done a Marquez, i.e. crash without falling down. Obviously untrue. She knew what I meant. Told her my skid mark was "about 70 feet." When I went back for snappies, I paced it off. 70 feet. If that makes me special I could be glad. It just makes me fortunate.
