Watch for motorcycles!!!

I have NEVER been so close to being hit as I was this morning!
Good lean going around a corner and she pulled right out.
Thank you so much lady for having good brakes (first time I've seen a car do a stoppie)
Breathe,... Straighten, Quick Stop!!!!!
Pretty sure the breathe came after stopping..
Followed by a thankful prayer.

Glad you made it out okay. The season is starting now and drivers are not use to seeing mc's on the roads...at least here anyway. Stay safe

Sounds like a very close and LuckyAdam was very Lucky!

Good thing you are here to tell the tale. Most members here probably have a close call tale or two.

Stay vertical brother.

2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

Glad to hear you survived Adam. I almost got squished into a cement embankment the other day by a woman in a full size Chevy Silverado on her cell phone who decided that she had to merge into my lane without even bothering to look.

Still debating on whether to use my power of invisibility for good or evil

^ Agreed. The beginning of the riding season always seems to be the most dangerous (where there is a "winter hibernation" present IMHO) because all those cagers are re-learning to have to share (or not LOL) the road with bikers again.

I have definitely had my share of close calls. It's never seemed to take me that long to get over it. I have also never been inspired to make a bumper sticker.
This will be going on my car.

I fixed for you LA12.....you are now LA11, you used one of your lives.

It is that time of year again, isn't it.

Be careful out there y'all.
