So I got up in the morning, ate only a muffin to hold me over for most the day. Contemplated selling my bike in about a month to pay off debt. Then went to class, turned in a paper that was sure to get a bad grade, thought to myself, "Man, today can't get any worse..." then right after class--
My first accident in my 2 years of riding.
Happened yesterday around 2pm.
I was going between 25-30mph, splitting lanes in dead-stop traffic to get through the intersection and on the freeway before it rained. The guy that hit me was making a left turn, which he had to yield at. I had the right of way [but that intersection has no lights for the way I was going], but didn't see him before it was too late to swerve or brake because a jeep was blocking my view and figured everyone was stopped because there was no more room to go onto the other side without blocking the intersection.
I got up right after I was hit with just a bruise on my right leg. My helmet didn't even have any marks on it.
I am officially a lucky ******* and am forever grateful to the Great Motorcycle Gods.
Tell me about it. I try to make a good first impression
And thank you to everyone. I appreciate it.
The front is completely shot. So it'll take a while.
I didn't feel so bad when I went to go pick my bike up at the warehouse they towed it (and a $30 gate fee, what the f is that?!). The guy there showed me a Ducati 1098s, brand new but completely totaled, the rider didn't even put on a plate yet. Hope he's doing okay :/
