I turned the kill-switch not the key. The engine immediately died allowing me to lock the rear wheel, I did not care about the clutch and the engaged gear as I needed all my concentration to slow down the front wheel close to its locking limit. I just made it. I was amazed and all I needed to do was calm down and head home for fresh underwear
Good to be seen by a man of your caliber and standing in the community ..
That's a good tale with a happy ending ...
