Home, Safe and Sound

Nothing routine about coming home from work tonight. I was riding my motorcycle home and cruising down the highway at 60 mph minding my own business. It was a nice evening to ride.

All of a sudden the engine stopped and the rear tire locked up. Before I even knew what happened I was sliding sideways. Don't know how I knew to do it so fast I grabbed all the clutch I could. That released the rear tire from being locked up. I was able swerve back to getting it straight tracking while holding clutch. Braked to a stop using front brake into the center median.

Darlene was thank god you are OK.  

OK!!!  OK!!!  I'm not even close to being OK, I got a broke Harley sitting in my garage, maybe a locked up transmission or locked up engine. I'm far from OK.

Spoken like a true rider! Glad you are ok, though.

I'm grateful you are alive and able to be pissed about it! Hope it turns out to be an easy fix... and that you are back riding again soon - I know you love it!
