Glad he made it... good thing their was no gaurd rail, parked car, or oncoming traffic.
I did that once on East Canyon Rd. that is east of Salt Lake City off Parlays Canyon around 1982. 81 GPZ 1100. Lucky for me their was a wide area beyond the shoulder and no cars coming. When I stopped sliding I was about 3 ft from the edge of the slope and nobody was around to see it. Had I gone over the edge it would have been a while before everything stopped moving. I was lucky !
Yea hes ok few minor scratches . The bike had no mechanical problems. Matter of fact he got up and road another two hundred mile with us and then road another couple hundred back to San Diego..Tough Navy kid..
