dont you just love running over....

a F**king cinder block that fell off a trailer. Missed it with the front wheel but lodged under the scoot sending my straight down and punctured the oil pan on my HD. I do wish people would secure the loads they're towing or carrying. I was doing less than 3 mph in a parking lot, so it wasn't a hard crash, but still sucked. New scuff in my armored jacket and new scuff in my Draggin' Jeans, busted turn signal.... oil pan issue is gonna take some doing, it hit in the only spot to actually do any damage..... figures

Yeah there was a ladder on the ramp onto beltway 8 from 45. Good thing I was able to safely avoid it. I hate debris on the road.

That really sucks. I hit a hub cap on the ramp from 610 to 59 at a high rate of speed with a little bit of lean angle. Almost lost it and the hub cap flew back and hit my buddy in the shoulder.

Hate to hear your bike is down, but at least the oil pan is a easy fix. Why couldn't you avoid the cinder block if you were only going 3 mph?

It happened in a sharp turn and I wasn't expecting for it to be there. I was doing good just to miss it with the front wheel before it lodged under the scoot. It was one of those things....

Glad your ok, I once hit a dot strap holster on 45S, tried to turn but too late. Took a chunk out of both tires and cracked my front rim. It was a miracle that I didn't go down.

I would hate to run over a ladder on the highway... I ran over a garbage bag once on 610 and almost lost it.
