Got me some new tires for the CRF. I had a bit of an "oops" last Wednesday that has left my right pectoral swollen and black and blue. Not to mention the missing skin on my left shoulder and right elbow. Sources say speed was a factor which contibuted heavily to the "oops" in question. When asked about the "oops" my bike said...."give me new tires A**HOLE!" I was trying to get as much life out of my tires as I could(yes I was being cheap), and there wasn't much left. I tried to carry too much speed through a corner and the front started to go, so what did I do...............you guessed it, gave it more throttle. Would have been fine if I had tread on my tires that would have hooked up and pointed me straight. However the lack of tread coupled with the sudden surge of power caused the arse end to suddenly be infront of the front end :huh: . This was followed by the "OH SHIT!" face. Wouldn't have hurt so much except for the fact I was going up the face of a jump when I realized there was no saving it. I tried to jump ship but the bars went to full right lock as soon as I decided to get off and hooked my left arm. I hit the ground so hard it knocked me for a loop. Lost my breath and could barely stumble off the track to avoid being hit by the CRF450 coming up behind me like a stampede of bulls. At least today I can walk and raise my arms over my head without yelping in pain.
