WUT.

So I was riding down Kingsway at traffic speed (50-60ish). All of a sudden I heard a loud snap noise and my rear wheel JUMPED UP. WTF. Then for a couple seconds the bike started to make a weird noise, and then it went back to normal. I thought I ran over something but I looked back and didn't see anything. I turned into a small street and had a look around my bike (not really knowing what I'm looking at) but nothing seemed broken or conspicuously out of place.

I started riding around the small streets at 30 ish to see if my bike would explode, and everything seemed fine. I turned back onto Kingsway and took it back up to speed, and so far, nothing seems out of place. (In hindsight, this probably wasn't the smartest idea, because if something was in fact, wrong, I could've ended up as road pizza.)

Now when I rode to work today, everything seemed fine.. But for some reason now I can't help but think that something doesn't feel stable. I don't know if it's all in my head and I'm just being paranoid or not.

Any ideas what it could've been? My friends think that I probably just ran over something and didn't notice it, but I was pretty positive I didn't (or else my front wheel would've hit it too?) Also the rear wheel popping up felt pretty violent.

Worst come to worst, take it in and have a mech do a 5 minute visual check. Don't mess around With the working condition of bike.

Is it chain driven? How is the tension. Does the clutch still operate smoothly?

Chain tension is fine, clutch works as usual. Nothing out of the ordinary seems to be going on. Maybe I did run over something

Just got back from an impromptu ride with some friends. Lots and lots and lots of bikers on S2S. Very few police but bring a sweater, it's a bit chilly past hosershoe bay

None of the 100+ bikers that i saw today didn't have them.

I'm not sure how often the RCMP actually enforce that law. On sunny days I doubt it but i'm sure when it snows then they'll be out in full force

My girlfriend and I have a big empty industrial lot down the street from us. Took the gixxer down there and had my first "lesson" lol. I rode dirt bikes as kid and have some road experience. It was easy peasy shifting and all that jazz.

Awesome..

Rode along the sunshine coast from Gibson's to earls cove. We caught the 10 o clock ferry and traffic was very light. Awesome roads and some tight corners. I would recommend you guys check it out if you haven't already

I'm guessing it comes into play more if you have an accident, I've never heard of an active snow tire check. I hate this time of year since the daytime highs are still fine for summer tires but the mornings/evenings get too cold for them.
