Wham, Bam, No thank you Mam
The title may be a little Cheesy but it has a reason behind it.
This thread is to tell us of any spills,wrecks or any type of mishaps concerning riding a motorcycle. I have had 4 in my life, 3 were minor, the last one almost killed me and left me with permanent injuries. I hung up riding bikes for about 40 years.
The first (minor) wreck was due to a woman switching lanes on me and taking a right hand turn in my lane. She quickly switched lanes when she discovered she was where she needed to turn and she slammed on her brakes to make the turn. I slammed into the back of her and was flipped over the handlebars. My helmet hit the top of her station wagon where the rear window meets the roof of the car. It cracked my helmet wide open and bent the forks of my Yamaha almost back to the frame. After some choice words I rode it home and had a horribly stiff neck for about a week.
Ok who's next?
I'll continue with my other mishaps after a few of your stories have been told.
Lead, follow, or get out of the way !
