A bad day!

#1 Unread post by pchast » Sun Aug 16, 2020 10:53 pm

Went for a ride.... after checking out the bike... got back to the house.
Its an acute right into a stone drive up the hill. I was in the left of center.
I had used the brakes and blinkers for about 150 yds with 2 cars following.

A car zoomed by on the right between me and the ditch. The second waited
for me when I stopped dead still.

No harm no foul I'm told. It certainly kicked started my heart.
I eased into the drive and started up the hill and lost it, a low side.

Then I noticed that the rear tire, on the left, had cracking I had not seen.
Its dot dated 0818.

Guess I missed 2 bad ones today.
Stay safe everyone.

Did you buy a lottery ticket on Sunday? 'Cause someone was definitely watching out for you... it was your lucky day.

Too bad the idiot who passed you on the right didn't actually go into the ditch.... it woulda been karma!
