Unhappy Done for the winter..... - December 11, 2008, 02:57 PM

Here's the story: Lowsided my baby on sunday and ended up braking my hand

I was taking a slow L.hander near 14th and Independence in DC after comin off the 395 HOV headin home from Crystal City. Downshifted and tipped into into the turn. When I went to gently get back on the gas to come out of the turn, my rear wheel kicked out on me.

But like a dumbass, as I was going down, I shot my arms out to try and brake my fall. Didn't break my fall, but did break my L.Hand below the thumb.

Getting 2 pins put in on Friday to set the bone, after that, looks like my riding season's done for 6-8 weeks.

Since I was goin pretty slow, damage wasn't too bad -- fairings, bars, f.brake lever, pipes, etc -- bike should be back up when I'm healed up. so timing works.

Guessing it was cold tires and/or some debris or gravel that did me in, but damn....

When you are a new rider, you are mostly relying on luck to survive. You start with a full bag of luck and an empty bag of experience -- the idea is to fill up the experience bag before the luck bag runs out.

Heal up soon man.

I dont like reading these threads. To all the 1st time cold weather riders out there. Tone it down and drive like a cruiser for the winter. I commuted everyday for a year from centreville to DC and back. One time in the snow.

  1. Throttle control is crucial in cold weather.
  2. painted lines and man holes can be slick like ice.
  3. be easy on the gas when getting on the throttle more so on corners.
  4. get used to bliping the throttle when engine braking tires kick out more in the cold weather.
  5. brake earlier when coming to a stop.
  6. keep an eye out for sand and crap.
  7. keep an extra bit of distance from the car in front of you.
  8. Keep in mind that cagers are not expecting to see bikes in the cold. (you thought they couldnt see you befor its crazy stupid in the winter)
Guys just be carful out there.
