crap: Well today it happened, I fell but not on my own bike no no sir on my friends. Allow me to paint the picture, its roughly around 8:45pm on a nice cool night perfect for riding me and my girl are chillen in my room watching a movie when i hear a motorcycle exhaust. I quickyl get up and dart down stairs its my friend on his CBR 600RR really really pretty all chromed out and such. He ask me to I want to saddle up so i say HELL YEAH, adrenaline took over as my mom,sis,brother,sis husband, dad and friend wacthed. Pressure built up as i eased out the clutch and reved the throttle. I stayed in first as i went about a block down the street and begin to turn around. Looking through the first turn i performed it flawlessly and began to go back up the street approaching my family i should have just stopped, However i tryed to turn back around, Now i didnt have as much room to turn but I didnt know this I only been riding for about a month. So i attempt to turn and SPLAT, i go down i cant really say what i did wrong. I thought i had enough throttle, i thought i looked through the turn, should i have walked her around at that slow speed? damn just dont know but it was hurtful and very painful. Not painful in the sense of i was hurt just painful to my ego. What did i do wrong? damn i just feel really bad because i went down in front of everyone, whewww if you guys have any advice or encouragement please give it up cause i need it. This is the worse day of my life.I mean it wasnt the wieght of the bike considering my GS500F is heavier then his, I just dont know what i did wrong. Well back to David Houghs Profiecient Motorcycling.
