Well, some of you aren't going to believe this, but here I am again in this unfortunate subject of posting. Had a little mishap yesterday afternoon, and let's just say that I'm VERY lucky to be here writing this today. Not that any of you arr familiar w/the area, but I was leaving Enterprise, AL and heading back to Ft. Rucker. It's a 4 lane rd, 2 lanes going in each direction. I'm in the left lane, and I'm doing the speed limit (seriously I was, b/c I was a major target. I was in my flight suit, w/my bright ass Icon MilSpec vest one, so I really was obeying the speed limit). Anyway, I see this car in the lane up ahead of me, and it looks like it's moving, just slower is all. So, I turn on my blinker, and look over my shoulder to check my blind spot. By the time I turn my head back to the front, I'm literally like 10 ft from the back of this mustang. This young teenage girl, was sitting in the left lane, apparently she was turning left into this housing area, but she didn't have her blinker on, and she didn't have her foot on the breaks, b/c I saw absolutely NO lights what so ever on this car at all. Well, after my eyes got about as big as a basketball, I had less than a heartbeat to do something. I barely had time to tap the breaks, and start a swerve to the right. Unfortunately, there just wasn't room. I kinda of ricocheted off the back quarterpanel of her bumper. Well, so I went for a "Flying AHHHHHHH" of the top of the bike and did a couple a pretty wild somersaults on the road. The girl described the way I flew thru the air and onto the ground as something really freaky. So anyway, nothing is broken, and I've only got minor injuries considering what could have happened. My left knee, along w/the lef side of the bike is what hit her car, my frame slider broke off and that's probably what put the couple good gashes into my knee. I've got a couple holes that are at least 1/8 inch deep. My left arm and right ankel were a little sore, but that's just b/c of bruising and I jammed my left pinky figner. Other than that, there's nothing wrong. Now, I'm going to be out of commision for a while, don't get me wrong. My left leg is in a brace to keep me from bending my knee and all. The cuts just had to wind up right on top of the patella, so any little bend of the knee, and I'll split that right back open. I'm okay though, considering what could have happened if I hadn't swerved when I did, I would have been going up and over or thru that girls car.
Now, the bike isn't that bad. The case cover broke, and oil went everywhere, and of course there's some cosmetics, but it's fixable. I took a look at it today, and there didn't appear to be any frame or swingarm damage. There will be pictures to follow, hopefully in the next day or two. Well, I guess that's about all to tell. It is going to set me back a while in my training, but it's better to be set back than not to come back to it at all.
