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.

Your a smart one for wearing gear, good for you. Because of the 95-100 degree heat in my area most ride in shorts and a t shirt thats it...glad your ok...btw what about the bike?

Good on you for wearing proper gear! And very glad that you're alright. Take care and I hope that you're back on the road sooner than later.
