What to do in an oil spill?


Recommended Posts

So I had a bit of a close one yesterday on my way to work. I was doing 60mph around a left hand bend that turns into a right hand bend that I take at 40mph. As I'm coming out of the left hand bend I see an unavoidable oil spill where I would straighten up and slow brake just before the right hand bend. I instantly let off the throttle but was still doing 50mph round the bend in heavy wind and rain. I struggled a little to get it around the bend with the wind but thankfully I brought it around safely. Should I have used the brakes going through the oil spill or did I do the right thing?

If you see it before you hit it other than don't brake etc ...... Pray is my advise

That's what I was doing the whole way around the bend. Only been on the road a week so I'm not the most experienced rider out there.
