ATGATT saved me twice, both encounters were inevitable.
Second instance was a month ago when a truck pulled out right in front of me at an intersection as I was crossing at 35mph.
Managed to swerve at the last second but as I corrected, the bike highsided, throwing me off causing me to land flat on my back.
I walked away with only a sore back. Pelican cases broke the bikes fall.
I was just making a run to the store an back not even a mile away from the house.
At the time:
Icon Variant helmet
Tourmaster top, bottom, and un-armored gloves
Alpinestar Scout boots
I often get criticized for dressing like an astronaut but I know accidents can happen which we cannot avoid.
I feel closer to home the further I get from it.
