Biker forgets cars have brakes too


This is the riders explaination (not me):

was a nice day and I had to drive 3 hours south for work the next day
and on the way I decided to stop in cedar key fl on the gulf coast for
some lunch. Just crusin barely above the limit a Camaro slowed down
without breaking so I didn't notice any break lights to catch my
attention and on top of that I wasn't being aware of my surroundings and
was looking to the right a little. At that perfect moment realized how
close the car got and it was too late. As I hit the breaks I looked for
an escape, there was no way I was gonna make it all the way to the left
and go around so I looked off road to the right and saw a parked truck
and telephone pole and that seemed like a bad idea so i just kept on the
brakes and tried to get as far right as I could and take my chances
trying to skim by the side. as you see that didn't go well. I went to
the hospital and got some x'rays and nothing was broken! I was limping
for about a week and a half and other than that I was completely fine.
I'm very lucky I didn't break a bone let alone that I survived rear
ending a car at 68mph. I think my rucksack protected my back a'lot and
cushioned the rear window from breaking and obviously I had a helmet
too. Oh ya, if your wodering. Yes my bike is destroyed and I think ill
buy a car next.
