This road is notorious for having spots of loose gravel that you can't really see. Plus, it had been "chip-sealed" about 8 weeks before and that always takes a very long time to bed in, especially on this road because it's quite remote so the traffic is light. Basically they lay down tar and then spread gravel over it, then just leave. No rolling at all, they just let the traffic mash it all down.

We figure I must have hit a spot of it right at the apex of the turn. Yeah, I was pulling seat foam out of my arse for a while after that one :rolling:

Good job staying upright. :clap: Moments like that happen so fast.

Gritters out in Aberdeenshire tonight so plenty squeaky bum moments like that to look forward to for the next 6 months no doubt!

:bawl: Now that's just downright depressing! Yup car was warning of icy conditions today too.

Glad you kept it upright :) but at least you don't need to deal with salty gritted roads in California with all year round sunshine you lucky thing :cool:
