yeah, it was raining cats and dogs, and i was filtering through traffic when a lady (busy talking on the cellphone offcourse) jumped out in front of me between 2 cars.

pressed too hard on the rear brake, and my rear tire was on a tramrail at that exact moment,

before i knew it, my rear end was ahead of my front end :laugh and down i went
i can hear myself screaming once again SHIT SHIT SHIT :laugh

picked up the bike, and to my surprise there's not a single piece broken, and it's not even scratched at all! the bike landed on the bar-end, the clutch lever (which held) and the exhaust. None of them are visibly touched :hail :hail only some white paint on it from the road markings. (which slide very well indeed :laugh )

if i am going to have to go down, i'd like to do it like this every time :thumbup

Win some, lose some -sounds like you won!!!! Some people never look out for anybody! Got to ride around with eyes the size of dinner plates to get lucky 100% of the time!

These are the advantages of a fairingless/naked bike...
Lack of air protection but no broken plastics when going down.... :cheers
Now go out and make some progress on that technique :laugh
