Out for a day ride in the twisties some years ago. Girlfriend's on her Viffer and I'm on my FZ1. After a couple hours we swap bikes - she takes off leading. We come up on a tight downhill lefty with unexpected gravel in the curve - I lose sight of her in the turn. As I complete the curve I look up ahead to see my Fizzy sliding down the road in a shower of sparks and GF sliding towards the ditch, limp as a rag doll.
If you've never stared off into the distance, then your life is a shame.
