So I had a date with the pavement today HARD!
People from the chicago area knows about Lake Shore Drive and thats where I bit the dust right by navy pier. Now I know alot of people couldnt wait to see this thread but its coo with me.
Anyway I was traveling on LSD at 3am in the morning right after the S turn going around a right hander on a bridge and all I know my back end kicks out towards the median and I was sliding and all I see is sparks and my passenger tumbling. I swear I dont see how people say you gotta know how to slide because that pavement had the best of me and all I can think was when the hell am I gonna stop and I hope my passenger is ok.
I offered her a helmet but she decided she didnt want to sweat her hair out. She came out pretty bad and all she was saying while she was in shock was " Is my face ok, Is my face ok" to her friend.
I was fully geared thanks to some pictures on her but still ended up with road rash on my right butt cheek until about the middle part of my thigh. I had a 95 dollar HJC helmet, Tecknic Chicane leather jacket, Tecknic leather gloves, Timberland boots, and ICON shin/knee protecter.
O yea and Wear your gear if you dont already because they cleaned my road rash 3 times and its not fun AT ALL. Oh yea and the chicagoi police left my bike on LSD telling me that they dont tow bikes which i didnt know
