thaaat sucks. i would hate to hit the corner of those exit barricades in a car let alone a bike. at least there is some padding there in the form of tires.

hope they made it but the ambulance there isn't a good sign.

not if you pick up the bike and ride it away before the police get there or if you don't need one.

nope...they still come. Some scared motorist calls and they still show up.....even if you're standing up and throwing off your helmet cuz you're you hit some gravel.

they didn't come when i went down becuase i was standing up/walking around and had the bike already running again by the time a cop got there.

A cager slowed down for me, asked if I wanted an ambulance, I said no I just need to walk off my ankle, and they STILL called one......which alerted the police that I was there and I got a ticket for my time. If I hadn't ripped the clutch line I would have ridden off.

I saw about 7-10 bikes on the road today- I was the only one in gear.

There's a guy who rides a red Honda VFR who parks near me at the school- he ties a nice bandana around his pretty little face before he gets on. What an idiot.

ha ha ha that was me. thats my bike im ok though it was a bit scary and i was wearing my gear so its cool. But i was on my way to work and we are only allowed to wear shorts so yall can pretty much guess i got some road rash in my knees. my ankle hurts, i can barely walk. But that mesh jacket saved my elbows and my helmet saved my chin and the back of my head. But eff that never riding with shorts ever again no matter wat. Like my mom says you wont learn till it happens and after today screw shorts.

Seems like a smart thing to do

I had posted this thread some time ago. Its a sharp turn, I think 15mph clover style. I always slow down when I get there. People think it (HOV) turns into a 2 lane road and at last min cut back in to go north. Lucky your ok, good man handling your bike...
