Was heading along Oak near 12th today on the Gixxer, cruising along in the right lane at about 40, when a Civic decided it wanted to be where I was. Didn't check his mirrors, didn't signal, didn't even look.
He clipped my front tire with his rear bumper, and I had to fight to keep the bike upright, but I managed to emergency brake without bailing out. Didn't have time to even lay on the horn, and scared me good. The cager who was beside me in the left lane saw the whole thing and helpfully honked at the Civic for me. Unfortunately, I was too busy trying not to bail to get the dude's license plate.
Anyway, just a reminder that wet roads + inattentive cagers can strike anywhere!
I need a drink...
