    High speed off Superman

    I had a bad ride tonight. I was trying to see what my friends 01 GP1200R was running and I came off while riding superman. All I can say is WOW. I did manage to keep ahold of the handle bars and pull myself back on the ski as it slowed. The GPS was at 68 when I came off. I should have focused on my riding and not on the GPS.

    My wife was riding an XLT near where I was riding and she saw it all. After it was done I rode over to her. She told me she saw it and was laughing the whole time.

    All I can say is that it was scary and not something I want to have happen again. Be careful riding guys.

    You are not OFF unless you skip across the water like a rock about ten times, but your safety warning is a good message!

    ALMOST EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO last week.. I took the skip ride across the water. The GPS read 70.5.... I skipped for 150 yrds "like a stone".. Darn did that hurt. for weeks.
    still to this day when running at WOT I still get the feeling of fear when I see big waves comming at me...

    I am glad you are ok.. you got lucky.

    I try to "superman" only on glass smooth water. The slightest bit of bounce and I am back on the seat.
