    Riders beware !


    During last week a friend here at work went for a lunch time ride and crashed about 600 Yards from our shop. His R6 is pretty banged up, he is ok, just very soar the follwing day. The ground was cold as were his tires, he went into a corner way too fast, lost traction and hit a curb sending him airborne into a neighboring yard.

    Also while out on my ride yesterday I was noticing all the hazards of riding in the fall the cold slippery painted road markings, leaves, sand, and debree in the roads from the rain washing it into the roads. Not to mention when it rains or right after, everything is extra slippery. I felt my rear slide out on me a few times during the day.

    Keep your speeds managable, and be very cautious of the road conditions and hazards that are unpredictable!

    Ride Safe and end this year on a good note!

    Mike

    Thanks for the heads up Mike.

    BTW I have the Pirelli Diablo's. Can's say too much for them yet. My quest for tires prolly isn't the same as yours. I'm looking for the tire to perform as well as get good life. That's a hard combination to achieve.

    But, so far so good. They have about 2k on them now. I think you know how the rear tire looks.

    Same here, but I live in a bike-intensive community. We're not a spectacle.

    Whats that supposed to mean I care about my fellow riders and just wanted any newbies to the riding world to be aware. Most of us already know, but it never hurts to be reminded to slow down this time of year! Me especially!

    Oh, I almost forgot Matt.. Now get to sleep early so you can get up real fucking early & make me a special boston cream donut. I want to bring it to my boss after the day I had....
