Not sure. Wonder if he had wax on the sidewalls.

I really liked the manual bike wash, but not the auto one. I like low pressure so as to avoid forcing water where it should not go.

His crash was awful. I can only imagine there was some contamination of grease on the tyre as his speed was fine and if tyre temp is an issue, why do we not crash regularly because of it?

The auto wash you posted is here locally in Indy. I have never been to it myself, but I know where its at. Some buddies of mine went and tested it out for them when it was installed.

I like the idea of a bike wash. I'm sure we'll never see anything like that here, so I'm content to do it the old fashioned way.

That drop sent chills down my spine. Yikes!

This is what he thinks happened from his Facebook page: "It was like 65F out. The ground had the runoff from cars leaving the car wash. So I'm assuming soap and wax plus water made it very slippery with my cold semi wet tires. Didn't lean all that much and I didn't accelerate or brake through the turn, so idk if it was really anything I did, other than go too fast on a slippery section."

He was going pretty slow. Not good! Like you said soap or wax.

I always think about that when I see oil on the pavement from cars.
