Well guys, the inevitable has happened.
My day was going great yesterday. My girlfriend had called me to see if i would bring her swipe card for the resrtaunt that she works for. No problem. I got geared up and took it to her.
After I gave her the card I was on my way and decided to go out to the interstate which is only an 1/8th mile away from where she works, and then go back to home through town. So im going down there interstate and the traffic is moving slow as hell and there was a lane blocked off.
Aparently they were painting new lines on the road!
Well of course you cant avoid getting some overspray on your ride so i waited until the cars in front of me went through and then sped up fast so not much got on the R6. Of course it did. I hate that, dosent matter if its on my bike or my truck.
Well, I finally got to the downtown exit and started going down the street to downtown. Got to down town and was going to ride around for a little bit then head home. Once i got into downtown my gas light came. I thought to my self ok, I will just head over to the normal gas station I go to and then head home.
So I am on the way to the gas station only a mile and a half from my house I come up to a line of cars that were stopped because the one in front was trying to make a left turn in traffic.
I come up to the back of a jeep cherokee and stop a few feet shy of it. About 10 seconds later i hear a loud screeching, then before i knew it BAM. Im flying through the air. I land and the bike lands a little on top of me. HOLY **** did this just hapen???
She rearended me at about 40 mph! Sandwitching me between her and the jeep that was in front of me. I hit the ground hard but i didnt really slide much. My side was in mad pain and it took a good 20 min for me to even get up. Not 5 min later there were 15 cops on the scene with fire dept and then the ambulance.
The Dumb Ass girl that rearended me didnt even see that everyone was stopped in the lane so she came into the left lane to get out of the traffic from the right lane.
Well, i didnt take the ambulance ride to the hospital thought i was fine at the moment. I ended up going about a hour later and got my girlfriend to take me. At least it was the fastest er visit i have ever seen. Only 4 hours.
It turns out, I have a brusied hip, uper and lower left leg are bruised pretty bad, sore neck, over extended right ankle, and minimal rash on my left leg.
I was wearing my normal gear, helmet, jeans, joe rocket jacket, and some oretty thick shoes.
My baby is totaled out, she will never ride again. I went today to the towing company to get the papers and stuff out from under the back seat. The key broke off in the ignition after the wreck.
Thats just great, riding season just really got super nice and now i dont have a ride!
Well I will post some pics on here as soon as they get approved and all that. they arent great(from my cell phone) but they are decent.
Im just sad and sore as hell now. My baby that I drove off of the showroom floor with the odometer reading 000000 is now gone.
