2005 CBR1000RR Wipeout

This little incident occurred on Nov. 9, 2007 in Saskatoon on 108th St. heading from the university into Sutherland. The temperature
was getting cold and I had bald tires as I didn't want to put new tires on as the bike was already totaled off and I was working with
SGI to get a fair price for my bike. I wasn't going all that fast (60 or 70km/hr) and my front tire pushed out on me sending my bike
into an oncoming car which did most of the damage to the bike. I ended up falling onto the pavement and skidding head first on my
chest so I had a nice view of the bike being hit and bouncing off the side of the road. I got up and asked the driver of the car if she
was OK and then picked up a few of the parts that were on the road. I knew my ankle was a little tweaked, but not bad, but it got very
very sore by the time the cops came so that I couldn't put weight on it anymore. The driver of the car that the bike slid into was nice
to me and everything even though I was entirely at fault. I wasn't real shook up and once I got all the paperwork and jazz out of the
way with the cops I got a ride home with a friend and grabbed my other bike and rode to the hospital. All in all, a very interesting
experience and probably used up another one of my nine lives.

Till next time,
