Well, my wonderful day of riding ran amuck when we were pulling out of a country gas station on an incline. My wife's PCX only has a 1.4 gallon tank gas tank, so I carry a spare 1.5 liter gas can in my top box for long stretches. Well, it was time to fill her up, so we pulled into a little country gas station that is on a slope. Because we thought about it after we had passed the station, we came in from one side with the intention of going out the other once I had filled her tank. As it turned out, some chicken farmer had come through the station a bit earlier and had dumped about 20 pounds of chicken feed all over the exit. From a distance it looked like loose gravel. I can negotiate loose gravel by going slowly through it. Not so with chicken feed, which is mostly ground up corn with something oily mixed in. When my bike hit the chicken feed, even without me adding any acceleration, which I eventually had to do to try to save the bike, it started sliding sideways down the hill! I put my feet down (both feet, on which I had my lug sole motorcycle boots) but they slipped right out from under me. As I felt the bike going down I tried to open the throttle to try to get some traction, still to no avail. Then I tried to 'cut a donut' to try to clear the feed at least for the back tire, but still to no avail. Alas, the bike was going down and there was nothing I could do about it. I rolled off of it as it fell on its side, so I was fine. My new Givi windshield, unfortunately, was not. It took 3 of us to get the bike upright because the ground was so slick. We rolled it to an area clear of the feed and looked over the damage. The windshield took the major brunt of the fall, so I had pieces hanging off of it and the windshield was cracked almost all the way through it from the right side to within a few inches of the left side. Luckily I carry good old duct tape on the bike all the time. We taped it together for the ride home, and now it sits in my carport like a beat up, abused scooter. I have ordered a new windshield for it, which will take who knows how long. When I got the original one we had to wait for it to be sent to the online dealer from Givi in Italy. Maybe I will super glue the old one together and duct tape over it until the new one arrives. The moral of the story is, don't mess with chicken feed. That stuff will 'mess you up', as Arnie would say. It doesn't act like anything I have ever run over or through.
