Same thing happened to my brother on his H2. Just screaming down the road, too damn hot outside, leaned her out and froze up big time. You've got about a half second after locking up to pull in the clutch and straighten her out, or you're toast. Fun is full of suprises. Young people have quick reflexes, othewise I would be dead many times before now. Old people have slow reflexes and break bones.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
