Late 70's CB500 threw me a mile high on a road that I rode every day.  It was no different on this day.  Maybe I rode over a baby flea.  Tank slapped so violently I was flying before I even realized it.  While still gaining height I realized the Honda slogan at the time "If you don't own wings, you will never fly" made no sense if you did not also have landing gear .....

I had a good laugh now, you were obviously ok otherwise we wouldn't have seen you posting today
I had a grip and just ever refused to let go, some of my friends could not believe what they have seen sometimes while we were riding (racing) somewhere and I heard there was even a side bet on me that I will end up soon in 3 different wards in hospital.
I was never good, I was just one hell of a lucky guy!! (Or maybe my guardian Angel was just not afraid of speed?)

Now worries. I was fine. 

No protective gear other than a helmet.   No broken bones and no major roasting either.   I bounce lucky,  I suppose.    :lol8:

I can recall the 80`s, tankslappers was indeed the norm.
the world is becoming too tame, in some regards.
of all the new superbikes out there, I think it is only the fireblade SP that is without all the electronic rider aids?
damn good looking bike too.
I see the TT is kickin off this weekend?

There was a H2R parked at Que Sera on Sunday...OMG I am in love! The pics don't do it justice, the colour is just spectacular, and carbon fibre everywhere.
