There's a fair bit of that going on just lately.... bike dropping.Bikes can and will be fixed,glad your alright.. ..
No one is innocent but some are more guilty than others,,
A bike can be mended and with the sound of it you should be ok.At this speed i used to use my feet,also had strong leg muscles then.
bit of a bugger john.....
makes you feel shit to scratch the bike eh?...don't worry, we've all done it. My uncle always reckoned you weren't a real biker until you've been off at least three times!.....not sure about that one!
feel like a right wally but life goes on
feel for ya mate
steve,your uncle was right in my case,3 times in the first 3 years but none after.
Sorry to hear of your spill.
Sorry to hear that
johnlad, but the main thing is you've come away okay.
it takes the right tyres on the right bike to have a chance in situations like that - one of the downsides of riding in winter.
I've said it before - crash protection is seriously worth it if you're not on a bike designed to survive being dropped. Really consider it if you're going to ride through winter once you and your bike are patched up.
On the other hand - where's the phquing snow? I want some!
feal 4 ya bro
done it mysen
onward n upward m8
got my MV out this morning as I had sold my ZXR and the chap was coming to pick her up.
Whilst paddling back I slipped, oh what a save. My poor old leg is a lot stronger than it looks. There is no way I was going to let the pretty girl down on the deck at less than walking speed
It doesn't matter how great the experience we are al susceptible. Glad your ok and put the bike to bed and forget about it x
I've lost spell checker
That sucks m8
glad you're ok tho......as Mrs H "There's a fair bit of that going on just lately"
Could everyone stop getting off pls
If ya don't ask ya don't get
I can't say I had an "off"
just a near tumble in the drive.
She is staying in the warmth till spring
for those of you
who want snow its here in cumbria specificaly the south lake district so coniston ect wouldnt be suprised if its snowing a devils bridge aswell
glad you're ok, dropped mine yesterday.
Sorry to hear that.
I once rode the Harley many miles in the snow. I was lucky not to drop it.
You always kick yourself afterwards but it happens so fast you don't get much chance to stop it going down.
I hope the sprain isn't too painful. Try an ice pack on it. No longer than 20 minutes at a time is best.
Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. (Christopher Robin to Pooh – A.A.Milne)
It snowed! Pathetic amount but still.... I got snow!
no snow here yet
and it's not as cold tonight as it was last night so hopefully it will miss Oxford, like most things should
Easy done ...especially in these conditions...
- 4 C here in Norfolk...... Its been trying to snow...but without much success...thank goodness.
