It happened right in front of me......
I was in my big diesel cage, N/B 14--Palmdale Bl, HOV lane, 85-90 MPH. A Blue crotch rocket was approx 300 yards in front of me, also in the HOV lane--and moving (90+).
All of the sudden, homie's back tire breaks loose! His shit starts fishtailing. He's wagging like a cheap hooker on a busy boulevard on a hot Saturday night. He tries to ride it out for approx 1/4 mile. But, the fishtailing is just too severe and he looses it.
He hits the pavement at 60+ (#1 lane) and the bike explodes! Not as in fire, but as in parts of the bike fly everywhere! Homie slides for approx 1/8 mile and FINALLY comes to rest against the curb, on the right shoulder. His bike also comes to rest on the right shoulder, approx 100 yards in front of him.
Luckily, there is not much traffic at 0800 on a Saturday. As I pull over to try and help him, I'm running over numerous pieces of his bike scattered over all 3 lanes of the highway. To my surprise, and relief, homie has nothing more than a moderate amount of road rash on his arms and hands to show for his wild ride. Amazing....and unbelievably lucky!
A quick investigation at the scene revealed that homie had no endorsement (of course!), and thus was not insured. I know--shocking! His bike was a Suzuki 600cc crotch rocket, approx 10 years old. The rear tire was inflated and in fair condition. We guessed that there was a small "slick spot" that homie ran over, added his speed (+ maybe hitting the throttle hard, which he would not admit to) and, as they say, the rest is history. BTW, homie estimated his speed not at 90 MPH, but 65-70. Maybe when he hit the pavement!
So I'm reading the thread about the GT's top speed......and thinking you guys are FUCKING NUTS! BUT, if you gotta go, why not go out in a blaze of glory?!
