School Story

Senior year, after school, in front of the Student Government / Activities Office -
I had my own Honda Super Hawk, but that day I was on Doug Otto's Honda Super 90, in front of a bunch of us, running the power way up.

Clutch slipped out of my hand, and for a few seconds they thought I was doing a fabulous wheelie (but completely out of control), until I landed with the Super 90 stuck at full power on its side, doing donuts around me as I barely hung on to the right handle bar.

Finally reached down, found the key, and turned it off, then collapsed in a mess by the bike in the middle of multiple burned rubber circles. Shirt and pants torn, pride severely wounded - but at least the bike survived with just some scuffs on the rubber foot pedal!
