So.... on the way to work today, on my favorite bit of road, neasden roundabout for those that are local, there's a quick left, right turn that opens up.
I ride this bit of road EVERYDAY!
Not sure if it was the cold (probably) but the only thing I did differant was overtake a car on the inside, on the right hander....I knew I did wrong, so apologized to the car driver by gesturing with my left hand.
As I went into the left hander full of confidence
the back end rushed out on me NO warning.....remember the bike dragging me cos' I was holding onto it, so let go.....saw it slide down the road, almost hitting the car in front
Luckily it never hit any street furniture.
Got up straight away and ran to the bike....was astonished how far I had to run
Apologized AGAIN to the same car driver, who had stopped the trafiic and picked up the bike and rolled it to the side.
At first glance a few scratches
....started the bike up and noticed, it was leaking oil from somewhere
Wasn't far from work, so decieded to ride it to work, keeping an eye on any warning lights..that way I get a day off work, see!
Anyway am home now....caught the bus, had to leave the bike at work.
Cleaned up my knee, cos' I wasn't wearing any protective trousers
Gonna hook the trailer onto the car and bring the bike back home, for further inspection.
Dis appointed, to say the least.
Ride safe Guys!!!
