Unhappy Went down without my helmet on

Got in a little accident today. It was a nice day so I decided to ride my bike to class. Itís just 3 blocks so I didnít put any of my gear on. On my way back I was in some really slow moving traffic, probably less than 5 mph. Somebody decided they were going to cut across 2 lanes of traffic down an alley that I was blocking. She hit her brakes before she got to me, but still hit me. I rolled up on the hood and back onto the road. I popped back up, without any more than skinned knees. Luckily I didnít hit my head or slide on the pavement without my jacket or gloves on. Oddly enough, I knew the girl that hit me, so we worked it out in our own way.
Maybe from now on Iíll wear my gear a little more often. It could have turned out a lot worse than it did.












































Oh yeah, did i mention i was on foot

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

Still lost in your words to the thread: This bit "--I decided to ride my bike to class.---" tells us it is a m/c as we use "cycle" for m/c so often. Then you claim on foot. So were you with a BICYCLE in the incident? If you wanted to trick us then I guess you did.

Three blocks to work is often the distance many large city people walk from where they parked their cage or m/c & often distance from get off point of a city transit bus (having lived in large cities in my past). Even as a child going to school closest school was 8 blocks I walked & longest was 1.5 miles. During WWII & right after school buses or city transit systems were lacking to not being avaliable.
