This was my first low-side. I was lucky enough to have it on video since a friend of mine was right behind me.

I hate riding in El Paso. These roads are not designed for bikes. Not to mention the sand and wind here is ridiculous! Glad to hear you came out uninjured. What day was this?

One thing I've noticed about Pirelli Diablo III's are that even when they're worn they still grip pretty good.

Hit me up if you go for a ride again. I've been looking for people out here to ride with but haven't had any luck.
