Patted my bike on my way to the lawn machine. At least it has a Kawasaki motor. With twenty years in the house I never had to mow this early in the year.

Rode to work. Then at lunch...

This;



Plus this;


Led to this;
Front...


Rear;


Short version is she couldn't decide whether to make the left turn in front on me or not. By then she was fully in my lane, & I was out of time & out of room. It was either her grill or the curb. I chose the curb, & using my best dirt bike skills, managed to not go down. Came to a safe stop in the parking lot of...wait for it...a nursing home.

And no, she didn't stop. A witness tried to chase her down, but to no avail.

Thanks to Highway41, my weekend with RideSmart is saved. He very kindly pulled his RT off the consignment floor to loan me his wheels & tires. How awesome is that?!

Danny,

Glad you made it through without anything worse and I look forward to meeting you this weekend.

Kudos to Highway41 for loaning you the wheels and tires.

Thanks, Phil. I, too, am very thankful. Looking back, it was only a few feet on either side of being REAL ugly. As for hugging The Wife, round one of that was done when I climbed out of the tow truck in front of the house. She had to book off to an event tonight, so I'm sure there are more hugs to come later.

It's where dirt experience comes in handy on the street, you kept riding it. When that happens most obstacles become fairly minor concerns.

Glad you're OK Danny boy.
