While on a tour in Indonesia, my bike crashed into a ditch and bent the rims to the extent that I have to unhook the v-brakes to continue riding. So I was riding only with my rear brakes. It had started to rain lightly and the road was wet. Going down the hill, I braked to slow down the bike. The rear wheel locked up and the bike started doing the Tokyo Drift...One foot on the ground and the bike sliding down the road, handlebar turned at an angle ... Lucky this was a country road where there was no vehicles.... That was scary because over the side of the hill drop a few hundred feet down to the valley below.
