So I was on my way to work this morning and almost dropped it. I came to an intersection where there were two left hand turn lanes. One of the cars on the left hand lane was stopped too far to the right so I could not sneak up to the front (lane splitting is legal in California) so I had to wait in line with the cars. The light turned green and we started moving. The car in front of me moved about 10ft and a big ass oil puddle appeared from where the car in front of him was. I tried to moved but my front wheel caught some of it and when we started taking that left my front wheel just slipped. At that point I was like "oooh shit" so without thinking I put my left foot down on the road and with the right foot I slammed on my rear break. So what happened is I wound up doing one of those moves when your a kid riding a bicycle, you know the one where your ride really fast, put your foot down, hit the break,turn and skid the back tire in a half circle. That's exactly what happened and my bike stayed up. I was so relieved when I realized I didnt fall. :lol: but that was a close one and a new move was learned out of just acting instinctively.
