I should have dropped my bike
Just had the s#it scared out of me, boyfriend and I are at stoplight first ones in line. Light turns green and someone from opposite direction making a left turn runs a red, saw that one coming and slowed. Well that was fine we started to take off again and another a$$hole takes the turn. this is what I saw... blue headlights and a red car. and what I THOUGHT was blue graphics. I started to loose it and I thought I was going down, (he was no MORE the 2 1/2 to 3 feet from me) so I just yanked the throttle...actually accelerated out of the way of the car... DIDNT drop the bike and made it to the next gas station to clean the seat of my pants out. I asked boyfriend what the blue on the car was..... it was the reflection of my blue bike on his chrome bumper... geezzzz..... shew...close one... I dont know how I did it. I made Boyfriend promise that anyone geneaticaly attached to me would NEVER hear of this.... It scared me, but I still have respect for my bike, and its days like this that you realize that your better then you think...and to TRUST the bike...
Just had to share....
They all start out like grapes, and it's our job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something you'd like to have dinner with.
