    Default And here's number one.

    Cruising down the turnpike with my buddy, heading towards Newington to grab a coffee at Starbucks. Come up to the intersection to take a left onto the street where Taco Bell, Pepboys and Starbucks is. Light turns green, and I start to take the turn. Bike slides out, I go down and my buddy goes down right behind me. Stand up and we are covered in diesel that is all over the road. Walk the bikes to the parking lot and call the police. The police show up and say they think it is from a Premier Limousine Bus. The buses are too big to make the U-Turn so they often pull down the road and turn around in the Taco Bell parking lot where they then pull out onto the Pike. The diesel trail followed that exact route. Our bikes are okay and so are we. Just scratches on the engine cover, fairing, and the clutch lever was bent but its good now. As for us, just a little sore. Needless to say there wasn't much we could do when we're going > 10 MPH and the entire lane is covered. At least my first time going down was in this situation and not going 70 on the highway. As Yev said, "Now you got your first down out of the way, no need for any more."

    Didn't you see the flag for debris on the track? Glad you're okay, sucks to have a mishap due to road hazards.

    Glad you're ok. Are they going to do anything about the road being covered or was it an, "eh, not my problem" sort of thing?
