This may seem like an odd post. Has anyone on here been riding on some real twisty roads and felt as if they didn't know which way was up? I ask because some friends and I were on a real hilly and twisting road a few months back. After going thru a series of alternating S curves I noticed that what I sensed as up and down did not match what I saw was up and down for a brief while. It seemed almost like I was weightless. Similar to the feeling you have after spining rapidly in a circle then you stop and know your not spinning but you feel as if you are. I think it was from the motion of leaning the bike from left to right multiple times at a fast pace. It just concerned me that if my focus was off slightly I most likely would have wrecked. Has anyone else had a similar experience to this?

I went to the doc she looked in my ears and had me do a lot of balance type stuff like stand on one foot with eyes closed. Didn't find any issues. She said it was probably a minor ear infection since it was just that one time. she said to come in asap if it happens again but right now all is well. The heat / dehydration could be a big factor that i didn't think of it was late in the summer and we started early in the AM. that morning was cold so I was wearing my fall riding jacket. It warmed up but i had no where to put the outter shell so i kept it on. i was sweating a lot and we only stopped a few times to hydrate prior to that. That really seems like the reason now. I will have to make sure i make water as much a priorty as fuel if not more. My friends and I tend to stop only for fuel and roll on as soon as the gas caps close. Now I see how that can be a real dangerous practice.

Thought it might be ears, i have a suggestion, you get 2 different types of ear plugs, one is a rubber spongy type, the other is a mouldable wax, the latter is better, ride with these, it firstly reduces the wind into and onto the ear drum, also it equalizes and slightly pressurizes the ears.

It helps me.

Thanks I will have to give it a try.
