Sideswiped by a cage.

i don't own a bike, but i do have a pretty nice mountain bike.
im going to whole foods for something last sunday, and look, and cross the road on Newcastle inside the loop. and some idiot right out of church decides to plant me at 35. mind you im 18 and that mtn bike cost me an arm and a leg. so bike goes flying, and i smashed the car then hit the pavement. i picked up some speed when i hit the car, and ended up sliding on the pavement for about 35 or so feet. (also, first time i wasn't wearing my helmet )

i got a bit of road rash, and a bit of an elbow ache where i hit the ground.
busted their windshield, and their left mirror. by bike also broke thier headlights, and f-ed up the grill and bent the hood release. my bike was out of tune, and has a few scrapes on it. i know the guys at a local shop, so they fixed everything for free..

i now know yall's problems with all of these useless drivers not paying attention. according to the driver, he was tuning the radio after they got out of church. he said he was doing the speed limit, and didn't hit the brakes before he hit me. he even tried to play it off like it was my fault until he saw that it was at a crosswalk.

still me off thinking about it.

the thing that me off most was his nonchalant attitude towards the whole thing. he was just like "well, i was only changing my radio" i half expected him to say something like "well you could have waited for me to pass, since u saw that i was on my radio"

but on teh good side, hitting the road now makes me feel better about getting on my first moto bike.
