Ouch!!!

Yesterday started innocently enough. I go to work. After work I head to Middle Run for a little ride. I met up with Matt run Forrest for a little while. It was a pretty good ride even though I felt like crap and the trails were a little sketchy in spots. Then I was headed home. This is when things went wrong. I was traveling along Newark rd. Just as I was crossing over rte 41 some idiot made a left turn in front of me. I slammed on the brakes and hit the horn, but at least I didn't hit him. Then as I am almost across the intersection an even bigger idiot tried to turn left in front of me. This time he didn't make it. I slammed into him pretty hard. Everything went white as my airbags deployed. After a brief moment I gathered myself, made sure I wasn't hurt, then found my cell phone and called 911. The other driver was not hurt either, and lucky for him my bike stayed on the roof rack. Because I can tell you I would have been really pissed if that got damaged.











This was the end result.

Now I have to got through the hassle of getting a rental car and either getting my car fixed or buying a new if it is totaled.











The other came out a little worse that mine. But the all important thing is know one was injured, and my bike is OK as well.

Rockin' in the rental,
Buddy
