So I'm going down Main st. around 49th and some lady is following me as the lights turn red. I stop my bike and wait for the green. As the lights turn green I start going through the intersection. I thought I was going through at a quick enough pace but this lady behind me turns out to be going quicker. So she hits me from behind causing my wheel to skid out to the left, instinctivley I rip the throttle a bit and it straightened me out.
Now I know riders are sometimes hard to see but how can you miss something that's directly in front of you? Keep in mind this is happening around noon so there's no twilight or darkness hiding me.
Anyways I'm in the "haven't fallen yet" group and this was my closest call to taking a tumble. So my road rage kicks in and I start giving it to this "N"ewbie and she acts as if it was just a love love tap. Meanwhile I'm freaking out and have lost most of my confidence to ride.
Well I just needed to let off some steam, thanks for listening.
