I broke my lucky streak riding today...

Was riding to work with slick roads from the early rain this morning with the same traffic. I had just turned onto Union Lake from Richardson across from McDonald's and some jerkoff flew around me and pounded his brakes. My safest option was to take the fall, unfortunately, the bike was laying on top of me. Luckily, I build up enough adrenaline watching people drive on the shoulder to get around me so they weren't late for work to push the bike off me and finish the last 3/4 mile to work.

My ego was hurt more than the bike.

OMG! I can't believe no one stopped to help you! Fockers. I'm glad you weren't seriously hurt though.

sorry to hear this bill.. you were doing well too... but consider this it wasn't your fault so your good streak is still unbroken

cagers have no sympathy or should I say consideration for motocyclists

Bikes can be fixed...bones cannot! I just spent my last $$$ getting this new bodywork for the bike. It's all cosmetic damage...all in the upper and lower fairings, and the oil/stator cover. My pants were shredded and turned into shorts. I'm full of scabs and rash from the knees down. My JR Corona textile jacket, purchased from Neller, held up great. I had a minor surface scab just above my elbow. I'll be all healed up in a few days. I just wish I didn't have my Army weekend coming in the next few days...

I'm very sorry to hear about the incident, but at least it was indeed your ego and not anythign else. Amen to healing bodies and egos, boo to cagers taking out bikes.

At elast you have an offseason to fix thigns up even better than before! I better not see anythign thats not carbon fiber
