Rider Down After Cali Earthquake

I decided to go out for a ride last night. I was go about 70mph when I felt this vibration I went to slow down because I thought I had a flat tire. As I get down to 20 MPH me and bike get tosssed in air. When I touch down I high side. Thanks to the Joe Rocket leather suit and Arai Helmet I walked away. Also a big thanks to the CHAMP Sliders - they saved the bike. Not one scratch - except for the sliders. People say me and the bike were 3 feet off the ground. The quake was 4.3 accoeding to local news and lasted 15 secs. I was able to ride home.

- 90 Mustang Coupe - 578 hp Grocery Getter
- 06 ZX-10 no mods - I love it
- 10 F250 Crew Cab
- 08 F-450 Crew Cab

I HAD A HANDLE ON LIFE, BUT IT BROKE OFF

Dayum. Thats the first I have heard of someone going down because of an earthquake.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

That's gotta be a wild ride for sure. Glad you and your bike are OK.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.
