    Exclamation One good reason to keep your cell phone ON YOU.

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Steering locked up? Sure...That’s the excuse he told his mother. Looks like trailing throttle understeer to me.

    Yep; he was doing 51 as he approached the sign recommending the corner speed ahead as 25 mph.

    So he accelerated to 68 mph! Steering must have locked up. Yep, sure, I believe ya, gotcha - gonna sue the manufacturer?

    Yup, happens to me all the time. Going too fast for a corner and can't get the dang TW to turn any sharper! Into the bushes, mud, or whatever other un-pleasantries are off the trail or road. It took me a while, but I learned to slow down when I see a corner.

    I call BS! I have ridden with you enough to know that there are two things you NEVER do. Slow down and wash your TW.

    I washed my TW....once! The mud and grime acts as a paint protectant. It's just going to get dirty again anyhow.

    Target fixation. Look where you're going to crash and sure enough, you will. LOOK WHERE YOU WANT TO GO and the bike will go there, possibly avoiding an accident.
