well yesterday i decided to take my 78 puch maxi down to the ice cream parlor considering it was such a nice day. had a great time cruzing at a smooth 35 and havin the cool breeze in my face. well at the corner of my road and another there is alot of sand... i came at the sand doing about 15(give or take a fewmiles) and tryed to take the corner with a little bit of speed(why not?) so i get up close and realize im gonna have to go alittle slower so i hit the front brakes(i dont have back brakes) and it was all slow motion from there. the front wheel went sideways and all that was going thru my head is"Were going down!!!!" i hit the pavement skidded my chest along the road about 3 feet and gashed up my knee that required 8 stitches, also gashed my arm and hands pretty good. surprisingly nothing happend to my bike(front wheel came out of allingment with handlebars) but basiccly nothing.i guess its time for a new front tire(didnt think having non-bald tires mattered) LONG LIVE THE MOPED!
