it's kinda ironic because it was just earlier today that i was mentioning to adamantium that when shit hits the fan it really hits the fan..
yesterday, I decided to speed on the highway. Normally it's not a big deal but yesterday was one year aniversary or corey's passing. so i got a speeding ticket.
today as i was leaving work, i got nailed by a car at a red light. luckily i hit the brakes in time so she hit the bike smack on the front wheel. she dragged me for a few feet and turned the bike around (i was going down 14th, ended up pointing up 14th). I ended up on the ground.
I'm mostly ok. I think I braced myself with my right hand. It's ouch. Left side peg dug into my leg and it's also a little sore.
The bike seems to be mostly ok as well. There's a scratch on upper fairing (the one that has the headlight) and the big lower one. Pipe is also slightly scratched. Most of it was saved by the frame slider. I might be imagining things but the steering might be messed. Her car has front panels messed up on the driver side. Curiously they have my yellow paint all over them.
To cut this story short..ride safe guys. Take it to the track. Rubber side down, shiny side up. They are out to get you.
I'm gonna call ICBC and have a beer.
Have a good night, and thanks for listening.
