Well no biggy, since nothing happend, I didn't think much of it afterwards. But I went to local shopping plaza to drop a mail, I forgot mostly elderly drivers come here, proof of that was when I was inside the mailing store, among all the customers waiting in line and cashiers, I was the only one well below 60.
Well anyway, I made a right turn at slow speed to make my way around the lot, and I guess right then someone decided to back up without looking. The car came out right as I was behind it, so all I could do is whack the throttle to get away, fortunately, the person braked in time. I only had the helmet and gloves on, so I could've been looking at from broken bones to being trampled under the car.
The day started well, but this just shows things could turn worse at any moment on a bike, no matter what the speed.
And then afternoon I took my other bike and was a little frisky with the throttle, experiencing the acceleration of v-twin, so I was going about 60 in 45 zone, and the school bus from the opposite side pulled in front of me to make a left turn. There was an accident here while ago where the rider was killed because of school bus driver antics, so I suspected as such and braked before the school bus turned to my lane. I I don't care about the second incident, but the first one was a close call.
My point is, it is difficult to enjoy riding here without worrying about these things, on top of that, we don't have any curves here, may be 2 in 100 miles radius. So the advantage of owning sportbikes go to waste with cruising and droning in traffic.
