ok so share your stories on how some of you got horrible road rash. ill start.
today i was out on my road bike and was going down this hella steep downhill doing about 40 and still accelerating. so im out with my cousins and he doesnt signal for a lefthand turn so i just kept picking up speed so once he starts to turn i put on my brakes and try to hug the corner so i dont hit a gaurdrail and get launched into a river and of course the corner has a shitload of sand on it. My tires slip out from under me and im sliding across the pavement for a good like 30 feet and now am tending to road rash all up the right side of my body.
