Us in the northernlands simply have to deal with the toxic crap they pour onto the roads.  It remains almost an invisible layer of graphite lubricant on the road until a few hard driving rains make it go away.  I feel for anyone who's had an unexpected low sider.  I had one due to not rubbing off the grease on a new rear tire at low speed.  Damage to bike and gear almost identical less any bruises.  I'm still a bit nervous when riding because of it.  PLSD = Post Low Side Disorder, I guess.   :012:
PLSD - Ha!  Love it,  MJake!  I'm still leery of that turn,  weeks later,  because of all of the salt and crud still out there.  Creepy. 

Thanks for all the encouragement,  folks. It's pretty humbling to have this happen after all these years and after having ridden in every conceivable weather condition.  Be careful out there!
The journey is the destination!

Cheers, Ian
