I was leaned well over. As I said I ride spirited, slightly more so on this particular day. That particular turn is usually taken at 40mph+. I do recall the bike not falling over much after grabbing front brake.
ABS, fabulous additional safety device that it is, cannot compensate for stupidity. Stupidity was the reason for my faceplant.
I know what you're saying re: Airheads/Oioheads;
a pair of jugs are always nice to have around when you're going down.
Used to have an 1100GS. LOVED IT.
Don't test ride a K...
That's how I ended up on the dark side.
As for you're speed in a turn...
...well, now we know what the 110
in your handle refers to!!!!
Alls well that ends well-and you seem to have learned (and shared)
a valuable lesson about following distance.
That's what Faceplant is for, right?
