Left work after lunch today, got on my XR and hit the road. Rode for about 3.5 hours and having a great day till I was about .5 miles from home. Turning right off of a 4 lane onto my county road a guy crossing the 4 lane from the other side decided he didn't need to stop for me. I don't know how I didn't hit him or drop the bike but I locked up the rear brake and started sliding with the rear end coming out to the left of me. I came to a stop parallel with this guys truck and the bike was going down but I somehow was able to hold the bike up with my leg and get it pushed back up right. Rode the few hundred yard back to my driveway wondering why I didn't get a '12 XR with ABS. There were not many XR's left in my area when I bought mine and the closest 2012 model was 3.5 hours away and the 2011 that I bought was the closest XR to me at 1 hour up the road. I always use the front brake first and ease on the rear brake but I don't know what I did in this situation.
