Yup. Decreasing radius turns can jump up and bite ya pretty quick.

Glad you came out of it in pretty good shape, and that you are looking forward to getting the trip completed.

Glad you made it out fairly safely! Do you think you'll ride again or do you need to process the whole thing before you get back in the saddle?

Good to see you made it out of the whole incident with minor injuries. Next trip out to Calif ride up the coast on Hwy 101 to Pismo Beach. I live right on Hwy 1 and I'll ride with you along the Big Sur coastline up to Monterey.

Looking forward to your next trip
