Had a 'interesting' ride into work this morning. 6 am, dark, no moon. The roads had a sparkle to it from the street lighting and I think to myself, is that reflection from moisture or ice?
I find it is a mix of both. I had a decidedly twitchy ride, a few 'Mmmmm' moments as I felt the wing slide slightly in a few spots. However I maintained control of the wing throughout. The ride was cautious with absolutely no harsh throttle movements with much use of the wings superb engine braking. I didn't crawl along but I didn't open the throttle fully as I sometimes have the urge to do.
Still it all adds to the knowledge of the bikes handling and my experience in such conditions.
Ride safe people.
