ThanksI was expecting the green truck to pull out. Nonetheless ride safe, wet roads suck.
We do have advance rider courses, but like everything else, they can be pricey. ABS would have been nice for sure. Good tip on where to be in the lane, I would have had a much greater view of what was in front of me. Defiantly a close call that would have been avoidable.It happens, their are always multiple hazards eh! do you have any advance riding courses in the US like the UK? we are taught to take the bends for best view so would have been closer to the centre for an earlier view of the hazard.... I would never ride a bike without ABS anymore now knowing how good they are in the wet if you get a brown trouser moment like that, we have all had them .
Thanks, Im taking the blame on this one. I didn't slow down when I saw the garbage truck blocking my view and was going a little faster than I should(not fast enough to get a ticket, but faster than the conditions should have allowed). I think you are right this wasn't avoidable, but could have defiantly have been made safer with some extra precautions.Promoted due to its one of those rare videos where 'blame' can't really be given, it's just one of those things that were thankfully avoided
Yup! no one to blame but yourself when it comes to safety.Good video showcasing why it's on the Rider to be safe. I just made a rant video about how it's the riders responsibility to look out for hazards and this is another great example of just how important it is!
Glad you made it out without issue
They say a lot of things... I was defiantly thinking that when I saw the garbage truck, and just hoping there wouldn't be a vehicle there.They say never go faster han you can stop
Didn't lock wheels up thankfully, but I can't seem to remember if my undies always had a brown streak in themdid you leave skid marks in your underwear as well as the road
Thanks, definitely good braking was needed here.I think I would have cleaned that guy up or dropped it if it was me. Well saved.
