Crashes

I don’t know why, but I love watching these motorcycle crashes on youtube.  It gives me some reassurance that I won’t crash because most of the crashes are due to reckless riding..or cagers o.O

One of my fears when riding around forested areas is hitting a dear..  This guy has some crazy luck to not be thrown off during impact.

Has anyone ever used this app?  It’s only $10 and seems to be useful if you’re trying to get your track time lower.

Tron

I’m sure many of you have already heard about the Tron Motorcycle that people have been creating.  Just wanted to get your point-of-view on the topic.

 

For me, a $55,000 price tag for a “motorcycle” covered in L.E.D. is not appealing at all.  From the youtube videos, it doesn’t even seem to have the same functions as a normal motorcycle.  With the wide fairing covering most of the tires, you loss the ability to lean the bike through turns that you’d normal do.  To each their own, I guess..

My First Spill! :(

I got some bad news, followers! :[

Last week I accidently dropped my motorcycle and was added to the statistics of the 1st year drop rate (~80% overall).  Fortunately, I was not hurt and there was no oncoming traffic.

 

Here’s how it happened:

The street that I live on has a trolley track that runs down both lanes of the road.  Usually, making a turn over those tracks is slippery and I can feel my rear kick out, but I feel like I’m always in control of the bike.  I have always thought one day I might fall while going over these tracks when it’s wet and to my luck, that night was raining.

 

I took the turn extremely slow and managed to get the front half over without an issue.  While trying to complete the turn, the rear got caught, spun out, and tossed me off the bike into oncoming traffic.

 

Although with a bruised ego, at this point, I managed to turn off the engine as fast as possible and picked up my bike.  To my surprise it wasn’t as heavy as I thought it would be.

 

Now, I’m stuck with a cracked fairing and bent shift pedal.  Luckily, the 250r is relatively inexpensive to fix with the total cost to probably be about $30 for a new shifter and around 300 for a new left side fairing.

 

 

Lesson learned: Find a new alternative route to travel when it’s wet or raining.
