    Here's the scoop. Started east up the 180 beyond the 5000 ft elevation with intentions of riding to Mountain House in Badger off rural Highway 245 ( a great twisty technical road as you likely know). As soon as I transitioned from the clean 180 onto the 245, I was met with a sandbox. Shame on me for not thinking ahead as my rear end first slid out to the left and as correcting, front end began to wash then while correcting back end went right. Flat tracking methods went into play and luckily it stayed upright. Went another 1/2 mile with the same and said "F" this; turned around, came down the mountain and went back roads through Wonder Valley then up and around Pine Flat. Roads around it were generally fine and clean although a few slide episodes , yet nothing serious and no deer sighted.
