For whatever reason it is extremely blustery today, my guess is because of the cold front that's preparing to blow through. Anyways...

Yeah I had a near drop experience because I admittedly was taking a corner too fast and right as I started a gust of wind hit me and made me "panic" sooooo I hit both brakes in a turn which is mortal sin number one but thankfully I at the same time had also started to stop the turn and right the bike so I managed to save it but only just. Didn't put the feet down and managed to ride it out but definitely do not desire to repeat the experience. I've since put my bike away in the garage in case we get bad weather overnight (was planning on driving to work tomorrow regardless).

ETA: rode it out meaning released the brakes and increased my lean. No skid had occurred so it was safe to do so and traction had not yet been lost but man that gust really screwed me up.

well, remember its a road not a race track, slow down, enjoy the scenery and ride another day with a nice clean bike.

live and learn :)
Aye chalk it up to experience and luck. Learn from it and let it go

I'm still a total newbie and I've had a few times where I have to knock on my helmet and tell myself not to be such a dumb-ass in the future.

Once ran a little too hot on a tiny S-curve, touched the front brake in slow speed maneuver, etc.

Unfortunately, I'm the kind of person that learns best from mistakes rather than simply listening to people's advice. Hopefully you're not that way.

Rode my bike in this morning to work even though I noticed it was pretty windy. Took the interstate as usual and went over the bridge as normal. Crosswinds hit me so hard I was in a good right lean just to keep going forward. I've only been riding for about 2 weeks now... I don't think it was that bad, but I may contemplate taking my cage next time.
