Default went down today!!

i went down today i was riding into livermore on east bound 580 getting ready to exit a mile up and all of sudden my back wheel just went out from under me ,just like i was on ice found out there was oil all in the lane doing about 65-70 i slid for like a day and a half until i came to a stop .

my gear saved my hide only got a bruised leg and a little burn on my arm from my jacket kinda like carpet burn no road rash , it could have been a lot worse.
