54 degrees on the way home. Got to be really careful.Tire`s can`t warm up to stick. Could be worse for the 5th of December in Missouri. Bought a used Brocks A2 slip-on for the h2 that was mint.Waiting for Brocks full systems to be available again. The stock muffler is stupid heavy.The slip -on is 3.75 pounds.

I've still been riding several times per week. I don't commute so they are all fun rides. It's been any where from high 30's to low 50's. The concours does great here enough power to have traction and fun and big enough shield to keep the wind of me. And I still see your 130mph when the road conditions are good.
Ride safe

........and THAT is the reason I don't take my 12 out on days under 60°f anymore. Cold tar and sport tires don't mix. Add in gravel and leaves and you got a recipe for an empty wallet....

It's never a good thing when you have to tow the bike back home I feel for ya. Looking on the bright side you are still whole.
When you are ready to put that beast back together get in touch with me I have all the parts you need.

Yes sir it was. Cold tires cold pavement didn't work well for me today.
Glad you weren't hurt too bad..but ultimately, I'm sure you would agree, this was rider error. I've ridden lots of miles under 30f...no issue.

There is some irony, when people don't want electronics...but demonstrate why they can be of benefit. At least you aren't like My12R....who rips on electronics, and then proclaims that he won't ride his bike when it is less than 60f outside, because he might crash.

I always turn them off, personally...but it requires extra attention with that throttle hand, no doubt.

Tire and ground were cold, tire is also new which doesn't help for sure not being fully scrubbed yet, wasn't going fast at all and wasn't even on the throttle when the ass came around. Was just a bad combo of new cold rubber on cold ground. Literally felt like I hit a patch of ice just came right out from under me before I knew it even broke loose. Never felt a thing was just all of a sudden sliding on my ass. At least it didn't catch fire after sliding like my last bike! Hah.
