so I am in the left turn lane last night going from a side street onto hwy 55. Just got some gas. The light turns green and there are maybe 6 cars in front of me. I start to pull up and all of a sudden this jacka$$ decides to pull right in front of me! I was just rolling forward at maybe 5 mph. I couldnt steer out of the way because he was maybe a foot away from my front tire as he cut over. My feet were still of the pegs so I could only use the front brake. STOPPIE! And of course since I wasnt ready for it I was off balance. The backend rotated over to the right so I threw my right leg down to catch it. Whoever said you cant hold up a 400 pound bike when it is tipping over was right. My foot took a good jolt and hurts like a mofo right now. That of course jammed my leg into my hip, so my lower back is pretty tight too. No damage to the bike fortunately. So I get back on the bike and roll up alongside dumba$$. I start screaming at the prick becasue he didnt even want to acknowledge the fact that he messed up. So I politely knocked on his window and he was either drunk or stoned and said he was sorry. It took every bit of restraint I had not to knock him out. He was scarred. I think the mirrored face shield may have added to the intimidation factor- kinda like cops do. Some one actually pulled up next to me at the next light to see if I was ok. Thought that was swell. He must have been a rider too.
