so yesterday was my first "real" ride. and my first ever"legal" ride.
i rode around town for about an hour after work. everything on the bike seemed to work good. and my riding skills were still there(i havent really rode in about 9 years). so i'm on my way back home to enjoy a few cold ones and i fucked up about 3 blocks from home.
from a dead stop i was makin' a left onto another road and gagged it a little. as soon as i tried to slow down i hit a spot of drit/shit in the road and the rear started to slide out from under me. by the time i knew what was happening it was to late, so i jumped away so the bike wouldnt land on me.
i dunno if i was over-confident or just careless. i was more embaressed than hurt.

Truth time--I just had a little spill on my first bike. Gorgeous 66 Triumph. Dented a car with my helmet, bloody nose, couple of bruises. 1st thing I thought was "motherfucker, wait till the guys hear this." Took less shit than I thought and Wes from FourAces is doing a stand-up job of getting me the parts and info to get back on the road. I was more upset over the bent fork tubes and dented tank than having my neck shoved down upon itself and what-not (since I'm ok). Bitch of it is, I had a great 50 mi ride the night before.
Get back in there, pick your pace. Glad your ok.

You would suck even if you didn't lay it down....hahahaha

Important thing is that YOU'RE ok....and repeating what was previously stated, there are 2 types...those who have laid it down and those who will...

We'll see ya soon!

Until you've fallen off the back of your bike in front of a crowd of onlookers while ripping a wheel stand you haven't lived. It's very...humbling.

Take a lot of Ibuprofin w/ beer and you'll be okay.
Or highsided into a tree in yer front yard with a kegger in progress.

Glad yer OK.
