Angry mightymouse dodges a bullet

i will NEVER travel down I-10 EAST again on my bike!!! that piece of interstate is dangerous. i was going back home to visit for a few hours in Port Arthur. instead of going through galveston,i went through baytown. well,got on 10 from 146 going east. get to that bridge on 10 going about 70-75 when all of a sudden a big metal flat bar with metal sticking up in the middle of it appears from nowhere!!!(construction trash???) i hit it and my 148lbs came off the seat,bike went airborne,came down and wobbled for about 2sec. then by the grace of it got straight. my front rim is scratched and my lower left fairing is scratched(you have to really look for it) i took a lick from the metal on my rt shin. me off that no one make sure the roads are clear of debris while road work is being done.

was caging it with my family this weekend and as behind a trailer hauling some furnature when all of a suddent two sofa cushions come flying off right into my car ... I avoided one with some really kickass steering but slamed hard into the second ... no damage, but I started to think about what would have happened if I was on my bike ... scary .

yo, I am with you on this... I am tired of riding on Houston streets with construction truck not securing their loads... my car got fawked up by rocks coming off a dump truck on 288 and 45... this weekend, I saw a lawnmower truck lose a few 2x4's... the saw it come off his truck and didn't stop to pick it up, he just kept driving... they should pass a law in the city that mandates all loads be secured, whether it be pedestrian or commercial...

Glad you're ok!

There was another thread similar to this awhile back. Someone posted a number to call to have that stuff removed from the roadway:

Texas Department of Transportation 713-802-5000

You may save someone's life by calling stuff like that in.

Another good reason to invest in some knee-shin pads if your gonna be riding anywhere on the streets in jeans....assuming thats what you were wearing. It will set you back about 25 bucks

+1 on the knee/shin guards. I spent $20 at cyclegear and got some and I feel naked with out them anymore. It's nice not feeling it when you take a rock to the shin or knee (which seems to happen all the time on 45) and I feel a LOT more protected. It's worth the money, and the extra minute to put them on. Plus, that aren't even noticeable that you are wearing them. If you're interested in them, call Javi, he has good deals on the A* ones.
