It took all of 1 second and i was on the pavement watching my bike slide down the road. Front tire locked up on me and went down. It definitely sucks but it is a risk you take when riding. My injuries are minor couple of scrapes and my leg hurts. Bike is okay thanks to my frame sliders, just need a mirror and blinker and i am good to go. Well back to laying it down it will happen when least expect it. Just wear your gear bikes can be fixed a lot easier then you.
