Was behind my good friend, he was on a Road King. He took a nail to his front tire on I70 in NC. We were cruising along about 75. As much as it sucked, he got very lucky. We were staggered and super light traffic that day. A rig behind us saw the death wobble as it started and when the rubber shifted, his bike pulled very hard to the left. The Rig had straddled the lane so any cars behind could not pass. He was able to break and pull it back to the right and went down in on the side. Scary. No PM or inspection would have helped. He sat down on the side to regain his composure but accidentally sat on a fire ant hill.... I laughed a bit, he can laugh now.
I do hate to see riders fall and not be able to get back up. I am always looking for new things to learn so I can increase my chances of making it home.
