So I was riding down a country lane last weekend enjoying the sunny weather. A wide BMW car came towards me preferring to drive in the middle of the road. I tried to suggest that there wasn't going to be enough room with the position of my bike but nope, she wasn't budgin'.
I manoeuvred over towards the bank on my side with just enough room. This put me into a shallow rut where the tarmac was worn through to the previous layer. I didn't panic but the rut steered me off the road and into a narrow and shallow ditch. Again, no point in panicking, I just kept my sense aware of any changes occurring and slowly throttled off.,
I'm sure the weight and geometry of the Bobber saved me. We gently came to a halt picking up some turf on the stand and the silencer.
Getting the bobber back on the road saw the rear wheel want to stay in the ditch with the front wheel back on the tarmac but a bit more gas and a spin pushed us out and on our way again.
Love that bike,
