Sorry to hear you went down, and glad you weren't hurt. Did you think your tires were warmed up? You knew what was wrong, maybe you shouldn't have been pushin it

Glad you came out okay. I'm riding in the cold most mornings, and this'll serve as a good warning to stay careful. Thanks for showing this!

sucks, hopefully not too much damage to you or the bike.

Do you sense me?

Do you fear me?

Do you know me?


There's no way out, only a way on.

Listening to your throttle application and looking at the surface, coupled with the things you mentioned in the first post, I can't believe this hasn't happened before. Glad you aren't hurt.

Always a good video when it starts out looking back with the thumbs up indicating "watch this"

Glad you are ok, and sounds like the bike didnt' get hurt either so learn the lesson of what went wrong and don't do it again.

Yep cold tires can creep up on anyone! Even when you're not pushing it!
