    Sometimes we feel safer out in the country but running stops is pretty common. Pickups clipping shoulders and spraying gravel across the road isn't rare either. If it wasn't for riders pushing limits I can't think of anywhere safer than a track.

    I was following a transport truck once and watched about 5 pounds of black grease slide off his fifth wheel hitch and splatter onto the road surface
    :I that was pretty slippery.

    It'll help those that would typically grab a fist full of brakes and flip their bike.
