Gravel, mud, ice, sand and occasionally oil. They all scare the piss out of me when I seen them in a turn going at a good pace. Glad you didn't fracture anything and I'm glad your fixing your bike. Good luck.

Sorry to hear about that man. It really does suck to go down on the new model. Glad your ok.

I went down on mine at the track on 10/10. At the end of the 2nd lap of the last session. 10 minutes before going home, 10 minutes!!!

The part that sucks for me was that it was because i was impatient i was behing a fellow 2010 CBR1000RR i wanted to pass him for a while but i thoght i'll get him on the drive out of turn 5 or the little short back straight before turn 6 so i waited and executed everything according to plan on the drive out of turn 5. I was on a high for passing that other rider.

i like driving out of corners spinning the rear and exiting like a bat out off hell. I went to turn 6 one of my fav turns like nothing, carrying alot of corner speed. The whole corner was fine no issue whatsoever I WAS ALREADY ON THE EXIT of the corner when you have already gone thru most of the points where the risk of loosing grip is at is highest. i gave it too much throttle and the rear went underneath me. I honestly didnt even sense the rear slip, nothing. next thing i know ime im sliding, hearing those familiar sounds, and me in disbelief. Because i knew what they were!!!

Im happy to report that as of Friday the bike is as if nothing happened. WE are now bonded by a new experience together. It has gotten the touch that now it feels thats now my bike. Unfortunatly thats how it is and we just have to deal and adapt.

Thanks for the offer Cobalt, but I already have one on the way. Just waiting on a couple of replacement parts to arrive, then she will be back, looking good as new. Well, better than new IMO because she will finally have the rearsets and levers that I have been waiting to install.

Sorry to hear about that, but at least you were at the track though. I had to ride my rashed steed back to the house in shame, limping along on one peg...

I'm kinda glad to see that I'm not the only one...

I was coming home from work today, hadn't even left base yet, when my rear slid out from under me in a turn. I've been riding for 3 years now and this is the first time I've dropped a bike.. Cold weather (40 degrees), cold pavement, slight moisture on the ground, and cold tires = slippery!!!

I'm just glad that I got frame sliders, extended/weighted bar ends, and rear spools/sliders when I first bought the bike. Other than cracking the rear plate frame arm and a very minor scuff to the mirror my bike is still pristine. Sliders = money well spent
