  • Another Kat down

    My Kat took a spill yesterday.Cager made an illegal u turn causing me to lock brakes and lay the bike down.First thing I did was get his plate no.Basically his car was on the side of road,he was conversing with some crack head and then he just whipped his car around in the street.The Kat suffered a broked windscreen,rash and two cracks in the fairing.My left mirror also has rash but didnt break.One of the cracks in the fairing was due to the mirror not snapping.I think this was my warning.I always wear protective gear but on this particular day I was dressed like a squid with shorts and a t-shirt.I have lite rash on both arms and a scarred up knee.It could have been worse.I have relearned a good lesson-ALWAYS WEAR YOUR GEAR.I guess I will finally get that new paint job that I keep putting off. Be safe everybody

            I'm really glad that your ok, the bike can be fixed.

            Everyone should practice their emergency braking. You should be able to brake very quickly, in control, without locking up your brakes. Practice this so that it becomes second nature, in case you need to do it.
