Greetings fellow vulcaneers!
I need to share this crazy experience with you guys...CRAZY....
As most of you know, i am riding my Kawa every day to work ( its about 16 minutes from home ), under the rain , snow , sun.....everyday!
Well this morning in Keller, Texas the temp was 21 degree which is not too bad for me since i ve ridden all year long during the past 3 years.
Everything went fine until i came to this puddle of water...yes ice frozen water!!!! [email protected]
I was riding at about 25mph then suddenly i lost control of my bike, finding myself sliding for about 120 feet...yes i thought i was ice skating...man what a scary feeling. Thank God, no car behind nor in front.
Here a link of the puddle's location, it makes me so mad cause for the longest time, some water ( maybe sprinklers ) have been leaking permanently.http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...226247663,,0,5
In warm day it's fine but this morning it wasn't!!!
Anyway, i am totally fine, Kawa is fine too, just very very minor scratches on the right pipe ( you can hardly see it
) and on my handgrip just a tiny scratch.
Only thing is that my favorite pair of Jeans is "out of order"
but i really don't care. Glad i had my wallet, it kinda saved my butt chick LOOL.
After all this, i felt very very lucky, it could have been much worse.
Maybe, a lil angel was watching over me.
Be safe out there guys.
