Yes that's right a queen size giant serta pillowtop matress. Hit it doing about 80km/h on king george. Just merging off of HWY10 at 3AM and I musta been drifting off a bit. Hit it right in the center and got some air, and the bike was ALL over the place, I thought 100% i was going down...If I was going any slower I would just been shot over the bars. Can't believe I was so lucky, my foot is just swollen right now from it getting slammed into the peg.
I know it was like an $800 mattress so I waited for 15mins to see if anybody would come back . Sure enough a pickup pulled into the parking lot beside the road where I dragged the mattress. I reamed them out and wouldn't let them leave until they walked around and found some rope to tie it down with.
So lesson learned, I know we all hear too much, but always pay 100% attention! Accidents always happen when you least expect. I was thinking about how to load my bike into my truck by myself in the morning and then I was in the air with my bars turned sideways..
