Nearly fell on my nose
« on: December 20, 2016, 11:34:19 AM »
I recently got a Michelin power pure rear tyre for my maxi - scoot.

While waiting for it to be fitted at the bike shop, I was talking to sales, and we were discussing newbies who drop their scoots right in front of the shop, as they  pull away, as the new tyres have that wax coating.
So, you know where this is going right?
Job done, I get on my scoot and pull away gently, but I was also making a corrective turn at the same time.
The rear starts sliding out from under me.
Geez, I could not believe this was happening to me, right after talking about it.!
I went through all the colours of the Rainbow, as I thought this.
Luckily, somewhere deep down, the instincts kicked in and I made a save, corrected that wild wobble, and did not embarrass the motorcycle community.
