Just for an update of the situation..
At January the 13th me and my BMW F800GS buddy, decided to go for a ride.
It has been over 3 months that we rode around due to a lot of work and bad weather so we needed a brake.
The days before the 13th, the weather was awful with lots of raining and cold.
But the forecast was optimal for that day. Lots of sunshine in most of the country. However the cold would still be there but we have our gear, right?
So off we went on the highway, and our plan was to climb a couple of twisty mountains, but we knew that until noon the shadowed parts of the turns would be dangerous due to wet and maybe icy asphalt.
Up to some point everything was good. Very gold environment but the sun helped a lot.
And then it started to get F***CKED up......I mean really!
In every shady part of the road was a 3-5mm film of ice and at the road's sides was a lot of salt.....damn salt!
Up ahead, entering a large downhill right turn with 25km/h on my clocks, trying to brake the RC ONLY with the clutch
(I had removed my right hand's fingers of the front brake lever), I see a guy waving his hands saying to me to slow down.
Well......I AM trying to do so, you dumbass.....
Point is that his buddy had just laid down his BMW R1200 and got hurt a bit on his knee. We pulled over and check on them and we left. He was ok and his bike able to be ridden.
After a couple of miles we pulled over again cause I couldn't feel my legs from the ankles down from the cold.
Up ahead was another icy part.....the asphalt is NOT wet. It's pure ICE.
Here is a picture with the ice melting up ahead and creating a fog
